The Drift HD 170 rugged waterproof camera is the world's first camera that gives people HD resolution, a remote, and LCD Screen in an Action Camera! Full 1080p video @ 30 FPS, waterproof, 5mp still photos, LCD screen, and a remote, this camera has it all!

  • 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 easy to use under a wide range of applications.

If that's not enough, the HD 170 also features:

  • 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.
  • 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 External microphone so no more listening to wind noise, great for in-car filming - Proprietary (Available Mid-Late September)
  • Night mode so you can record in darker conditions

Once you set up the camera using the various mounts included, you can rotate the lens to ensure that you have an upright picture. Now that you're ready to go, strap the remote control onto your wrist or handlebar; this remote is all that you need to start and stop the video. If your HD170 is in photo mode then the remote will take stills for you at 5Mp.

Having a high quality screen on the camera itself gives you the benefits of being able to review your videos right away. If you are in training then you can learn from watching the footage before going out again. It's also great fun to show off your videos to your friends.
