    Review - Drift HD Ghost

    I've been using it for two weeks only, i'm very happy with it.
    Easy to use, nice remote, for the usual needs in MTB the quality is fantastic.
    The less positive is the weight (on helmet mount), and the lack of mounts for MTB in the pack.
    Just bought the shoulder mount, i'll post something about it as soon as possible.

    Great review!
    But the most important part about this cam on top of all its great features is that people wont look like goofy Teletubies while using it on their helmets.

    Anyone else figure out a good handlebar and/or better helmet mount. Just picked up one of these yesterday and am hoping to take it on a bigger ride this weekend...

    Here is a picture of what I did (it's a Replay mount, but its the same sort of thing). Get a GoPro helmet mount and dremel things flat, and then use the Drift flat stick-on mount.

    Thanks. I'm kinda new to the video thing (and I can probably search other threads to find some other opinions), but aren't handlebar mounts preferred? It often seems like helmet shots are pretty bouncy?

    Nice review, pj. Are there any mounts like Contour's flex straps? Or any alternatives?

    FWIW- had mine set up on the helmet and the POV is way too high. Makes steep, technical climbs look like flat roads. I'm going to experiment with frame or fork mounting it.

    That's going to happen on any camera. Happens with my Contour. Even with a fork your handlebar is vibrating a lot more than you think.
