Drift's Ghost action camera gets new high-end features


Earlier this summer I told you about the Compass, a tiny wearable camera made by London’s Drift Innovation. The Compass is an inexpensive option for people who want to be ready to grab a video clip anytime and anywhere.
Today Drift announced an upgrade to its Ghost line of cameras for users who want to step up their action video game. The Ghost 4K is capable of shooting 4K Ultra High Definition at 30 fps or 1080p at 120 fps.

It also comes with electronic image stabilization and a gyroscope that automatically predicts movements for smooth stabilization.

Here’s what Drift CEO Sab Jhooti said about the Ghost 4K:
We wanted to go a step further with our Ghost design to add not only a creative spin but a major advancement to ensure that our Ghost fans are experiencing something truly special.We’re putting the power back into the hands of the user and offering them the freedom to film their lives the way that they want to.
Other premium features built into the Ghost 4K include:

  • Dual front and rear microphones for amplified sound and wind noise reduction. When the camera is recording and in motion, it automatically switches from the front mic to the rear mic 
  • Improved WiFi and bluetooth connections for live streaming
  • A ‘Stitch’ mode that can be set to link a new clip to the last one 
  • A side panel that can be removed to attach components such as a battery pack, an LCD viewfinder or a 4G unit.

The Ghost 4K will be introduced this week and at IFA 2016 in Berlin and will be available to purchase in October at the Drift Innovation website. You can follow Drift on Twitter @driftinnovation and see some cool user photos and videos on Instagram.
