Drift Innovation Cameras

During Outdoor Retailer we were introduced to Drift Innovation, a company which specializes in wearable Point of View cameras. They have already established quite a following in the action sports community but told us that they are beginning to see sales to military customers.

Their flagship Drift HD170 offers quality 1080p and 720p HD as well as standard definition (WVGA) video for $329.99. It relies on a rechargeable internal battery. There is also a standard version of the 170 that uses AA batteries and retails for $199.99. Drift has developed a Tactical model, seen below.

The unit relies a fish eye lens so it takes in a wide field of view and is a compact 133 (L) x 50 (D) x 33 (W) mm. As you can see from the button layout it is simple to use which is important for such a device when mounted to a helmet or weapon. There is also a remote switch that can easily be attached to a weapon’s forearm. Additionally, it features an integrated screen for instantaneous feedback in the field. Finally, video is saved in .MOV format with no obscure codecs so it can easily be shared and stored.
