Ideal for the casual user and prosumer alike, the Ghost-S is the most powerful Drift camera to date – twice as powerful as its predecessor. Boasting a leading-edge processor, Sony™ CMOS sensor, plus 7-element aspherical lens technology, the Ghost-S is capable of 1080p at 60fps, 12MP stills and unprecedented low-light performance. The result is extraordinarily smooth, rich video in any condition. Best in class battery life (3.5 hours) means you can record more and worry less. A vivid 2" Corning® Gorilla® Glass scratch-resistant LCD screen further distinguish the Ghost-S from it’s competitors. Simple and intuitive, yet packed with features, the easy-to-use interface provides access to a wide variety of user-adjustable settings including, bit rate, 10x digital zoom, resolution, frame rate, exposure, field of view and manual HDMI out. Paired with an updated rotatable lens, the Ghost-S places professional-caliber features at the fingertips of casual users.

Equipped with one of the most powerful chips on the market, the Ghost-S provides crystal-clear Full HD images and stunning 12MP photos. The resolution is individually adjustable and can be extended up to 1080p (with a frame rate of up to 60 fps).
TIP!  Combine photo and video mode and shoot high-resolution images even during movie recording!


A great advantage of the Ghost-S is its super easy assembling. The 300° continuously rotatable lens allows you to mount the camera in all conceivable positions, and yet still provides a straight image. So just plug the camera into the mount, set the lens and get started - no angles, no screws!

An integrated 2" LCD display (protected by Corning® Gorilla® Glass) gives your Ghost-S another big plus when it comes to handling. Using the display makes it easy to frame your desired shot (helpful when mounting the camera). It also offers you the opportunity to manage your recordings directly afterwards and makes navigating within the camera menus incredibly comfortable. 


You're tired from changing your battery all the time? Or have you once again lost a great shot? With the Ghost-S you can get these worries off your mind. A powerful 1700 mAh battery provides an extended recording time of 3.5 hours and makes your Ghost-S one of the most powerful models in its class.


The principle of the Drift 2-Way Remote is simple but effective: Use the two buttons (also easily operated with gloves) to start or stop recording, or control multiple cameras simultaneously via the "One-to-All "mode. Shoot photos even while recording a video, use video-tagging, or simply switch between all the different camera modes - the colour of the remote control’s LED indicator will show the current mode. By connecting the camera via radio frequency (instead of Wi-Fi), Drift does besides help you to save valuable battery-life.


The Drift Ghost-S does not only resist dirt and rain without any problems - it is completely waterproof to 3 meters (9 ft) without an extra housing. Want to dive deeper? No problem, just get yourself the optional waterproof case as soon as possible and take your Ghost-S up to 60m down under the sea level!

  1. Thank you Review by The Mysterious Fist

    Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you to all at Drift for the amazing customer service and great product. I bought my Drift Ghost-S and had a lot of questions about the best way to use it on a feature film I am advising on. Ross and Kate were able to offer, knowledgable, helpful advice and the camera performed above and beyond expectations - superb.

    Thanks to all
