Camcorders Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The Drift HD170 is the worlds first sports action camera which films in full 1080p HD and has a playback screen and remote control. This rugged water resistant camera is the first camera that gives people what they want from an Action Camera:

  • Full HD for creating crystal clear footage
  • A playback screen for lining up shots and the ability to play back the footage right away
  • A remote control to enable you to film what you want to record, not the boring stuff in between
  • Easy to use mounts so you can use it whenever you want and mount it anywhere your imagination allows you. The shape of the camera and the mounts it comes with make it the easiest camera out there to use

If that isn′t enough the camera also has the following:

  • A rotating lens so you can mount the camera at any angle and any position to get that shot you are looking for
  • It can take photos, put it in the photo burst mode and you can take pictures every few seconds for as long as your memory card lasts. If you don′t get a decent photo then you need to do something else or give the camera to someone else who can really use it
  • You can pair the remote control to your camera, chances are your mates will have the same camera, no turning off their camera just before they hit the tree
  • A zoom function so you can get even closer to the action or your friend in front
  • An optional external microphone (sold as an accessory), so no more listening to wind noise, great for in-car filming
    Night mode so you can record in darker and duskier conditions

We searched for this product high and low,
from House of Fraser to Tesco,
no one is selling it, we're sorry to say,
not 419 retailers nor anyone on eBay,
but please don't worry even if it hurts,
you can look for alternatives or
