Customer Review

on 5 June 2012
After a long time "umm-ing" and "ah-ing" between the Drift, Contour and GoPro, I finally got the Drift (persuaded by the sellers cheap price and some amazon vouchers I had burning a hole in my email inbox)

Good Stuff as follows
Used it out while mountain biking Pennines and Yorkshire at the weekend - needless to say there was a bit of rain but it didnt banjax the camera (i believe there is a waterproof case available)
viewing it back on the HD tv, the views were stunning and the colour very true to life.
Excellent pic quality in both 720 and 1080.
Wide angle lens is great.
Remote control is handy, although the camera has to be switched on for this to work - it will not automatically make it switch on.
Decent set of mounts included - although I have combines the goggle mount and remote wrist strap and some cable ties to create a solid helmet mount (right on the top).
the onboard screen is good to give you a good idea of what your shooting. and the swiveling lens means you get a good shot depending on what way the camera is mounted.
i prefer the bullet shape to this which is something that put me off gopro
rubberised outer shell is good protection should it take a fall. probably worth getting the lens protector as the lens protrudes.
its also considerably more compact that the previous hd170 and stealth models, which are the size of a brick.
mic is decent although inevitable moving at speed and in wind made a bit of blustering.
useful firmwear updates from drift innovations website. keep on top of these to get the most from the camera

Things not so impressive are;
No handlebar or helmet mount included which was a bit cheeky considering a lot of (motor)cyclists will be using this.
Battery life of that supplied is SHOCKING! (a couple hours MAX) So purchase a backup (or two).
