A very unusual camera model is the Drift Ghost 4K Action Camera. It has a cylindrical shape, which means that it is quite thin and its camera lens can be rotated 300 degrees.

She captures photos and videos with her 12-megapixel camera, and the LCD can be flipped open and has a touchscreen that can be used to control the camera.

The Image Stabilizer is pretty cool too, so you can create jitter-free recordings without any problems.

The kit also includes a wide range of accessories with a variety of attachments.


The fold-out LCD touchscreen display is amazing. The fact that you can fold it down makes the camera individually customizable and gives you a lot of flexibility.

There is also a small LCD status display on the back of the action camera where you can see the most important data such as resolution, frame rate, recording time and battery level.

The versatile functions of the action camera are really cool too. For example, you can put the camera in standby mode, start shooting at a specified interval, and then save the video footage.

Design and appearance

As already mentioned, the camera is cylindrical and has a fold-out screen.

It also has a USB connection built into the camera, with which you can easily transfer your recordings to other media such as a laptop or PC.

The camera weighs approximately 120 grams and has the following dimensions: 20.83 cm x 10.92 cm x 7.87 cm. This makes it quite compact, fits in any pocket and can be taken anywhere.

Image sensor, resolution and memory

This model has an optical sensor resolution of 12 megapixels. The image and video material is good for the price. Buy is definitely worth it.

Entries are displayed on a 1.5-inch display. Built-in electronic image stabilization is very useful when shooting.

4K videos are generated at 30 frames per second. But you can also set other resolutions and use super slow motion playback, among other things.

What we really like is the rotating lens. This way, you can attach the Ghost 4K action camera at different angles and, despite the tilting camera mount, create perfectly flat and horizontal recordings.

What is a camera for?

You can attach it in a variety of ways using the attachment attachments and use it as a helmet camera or as a dash cam in your car. As mentioned, a swivel lens has the advantage.

Battery and run time

The package includes a rechargeable module (500 mAh or 1500 mAh), which provides recording with an operating time of up to 6 hours.

The exact duration of the recording depends on the selected module and on how high the resolution of your camera is. If you want to record for a particularly long time, we recommend the optional 1500mAh battery, which you should choose from stores like Amazon.

The Drift Ghost 4K action camera is the ideal camera for all adventurers, combining many benefits in one device. For example, it can be used as a helmet-mounted camera as well as a conventional bracket-mounted video camera or surveillance camera.

Some also use an action camera as a recording device for their model airplanes, drones, or remote controlled vehicles.

Unfortunately, the camera is not the cheapest, but the image and video quality is impressive, and some buyers equate the cost to the GoPro. So if you want to try out a somewhat oddly shaped action camera, you should take a closer look at the Drift Ghost 4K camera.
