For some reason, I seem to be reviewing gadgets that would be great gifts for those who love the outdoors. I’m sure there is a better name to describe that audience, but I think you will see that they would enjoy the Drift HD Action Camera.
The Drift HD is designed to be on the same level as the Go Pro cameras for those point-of-view shots that you see on video-sharing sites. In this case, the Drift HD is designed to travel on the side of the head of a biker, skier, or other extreme sportsman (or woman) for action shots. It comes with a lot of straps and mounts to make this easy to happen, too.
I don’t know how it relates to the Go Pro, but it comes with a cool remote control that you can flip on and off when you got the shot you want. Think of it as an easy way of editing the boring stuff you won’t want to film. If that isn’t enough, there is a playback LCD screen so you can see how the shot went, in case you have to do it over again.
I got a chance to try it out, and I will recommend it to the audience that I mentioned before. Just make sure that the LCD screen is on the left side, like you see in the picture. I found the shots came out with a fisheye type view, but they were clear. I also found it easy to rip the video off the microSD card, and connect to my TV with the HDMI cable for 1080p footage.
You should be able to get it for about $369 online, but perhaps you can look around to see if you can get a cheaper price.
