Imaging Device/Sensitivity: The camera uses a high-quality CMOS image
sensor for excellent video quality. An adjustable exposure setting allows you to
determine the camera's sensitivity to light. If recording in very bright or dark
conditions, you can adjust the exposure from -2.0 to +2.0. There is also a Night
Mode to enhance recordings made in very low light.
Microphone: The Drift HD has a built-in microphone for
recording sound with your action videos. The microphone sensitivity is
adjustable (low, medium, or high) in the camera menu. A 2.5mm sub-miniplug input
is available for an optional external microphone.
LCD Screen: The 1.5" TFT color LCD screen allows you to preview your
shots before you start recording, as well as play back your videos immediately
after shooting. You can set the LCD brightness to one of three levels.
HDMI Output: The Drift HD has a microHDMI (Type D) output
for connecting the camera to an HDTV. No HDMI cable is included.
Power Requirements: The Drift HD is powered by a rechargeable Lithium-Ion
battery (3.7 volts / 1100 mAh). A fully-charged battery provides about 2-1/2 to
3 hours of shooting time at 77°F, slightly less in colder temperatures. Battery
life can be extended by changing the LCD brightness setting (or turning off the
LCD), or setting the camera to turn itself off when no buttons are pressed for a
set amount of time. A longer-life battery (1700 mAh--4 hours) is also available.
The battery can be charged via USB or an optional battery charger or cigarette
Remote Control: The supplied 2-button wireless remote control allows
you to easily operate the camera hands-free. A Velcro strap is supplied to allow
you to wear the remote on your wrist or secure it to various devices. The remote
works on radio frequencies (RF), so line-of-sight is not required as with
infrared remotes. The remote has a range of approximately 10 feet. The remote
will need to be paired with the camera prior to use. If desired, a single remote
can be paired to multiple cameras, so you can start/stop recording all paired
cameras with one button press. The remote control is powered by the CR2032
