Has anyone else picked up a Drift HD170 cam yet? I ordered one from Amazon last Wednesday and am testing it out today.... Somewhat unimpressed, its somewhat unrefined, like it was rushed to market. Things I like : - The 170 degree wide angle lens (in 720p only mode) is pretty nice, huge field of view - RF Remote Control, very cool - Fairly flexible mounting choices - Soon-to-be-released extended life battery - Ability to add an external mic - Battery saving features like disable external screen, etc - External screen to verify camera placement, etc - Time lapse camera Things that need to be improved : - Wide angle lens drops to 120 degrees or so in 1080p mode - Menu system is kinda shoddy - Microphone is CRAZY muffled. Even at its highest sensitivity, audio for my bikes engine is super faint(but not wind noise!!!!) - Ability to add external mic requires rear door to hang open. Should put a port on the outside, and preferably not use a proprietary connector. - 1080p recorded videos only show up on Youtube as 720p. Still trying to figure this out.... - Records movies as .MOV. Would prefer MP4. A 2 minute 1080p movie using their codec is just over 400meg. - Would like the option to record at 60FPS at 720p. Cheaper handheld units have this feature... Anyone else evaluating this camera? ----------------------- EDIT after working with the guys from Drift Innovations : just recorded the same test riding scene using the existing 1.3.4 firmware on my HD170, and the 2 new firmware revs Drift Innovation recommended. 1.3.9 and 1.5.0 firmware revs DEFINITELY improve audio and improve color saturation in the videos. Thx John and Tom from Drift for the pointers! Now if only that extended life battery were onsale!!!
