Drift HD 720

Postby Keith Legge » 06 Mar 2013, 18:53

Had a chance to try the Drift HD 720 again today paid £115 for it and on the whole when you look at some of the prices for a video camera i think its well worth it.
Only problem i can see at the moment is in strong light it can wash out the picture.
Screen is small waste of time unless i've got my reading glass's with me. :roflmao:
The remote control is handy with the camera on the remote is straight forward start stop works for me.
Can take still pictures also take pictures constantly and you can alter the time between shots.

No socket for external mike on this one.
Image

Stick on holder for helmet.

Image

Don't want to lose it so fixed to a lanyard.
Image

Remote control on velcro strap can go round wrist or fix on handlebars.

Thanks for the write up. That looks like a good bit of kit for that price.

Got the very same for my wired lipstick/finger cam, that suction cup holds like crazy, but I'll still will attach a fishing line for safety.

Both look positions look good Keith. I think I prefer the screen mount but only because it's a more natural view.
Hows the bike feel now?

Looks good,nice and clear you can even see all the pot holes [its almost as bad as round here :roll: ]Bloody snowing again round here today BRRR!!!
Maybe stick a bit of foam over the mic to cut down on wind noise as the design positioning at the front doesn't help in an action cam does it.
PS where did you get the suction holder from?

I was thinking more of picking up background sound but cutting back on the wind effect much like the pros use a large furry type sponge wind sock
