For the first time ever, everything you are looking for in a wearable camera is included in one small package, enabling you to start recording as soon as you open the box, without having to search out mandatory filming accessories. Not only that but we've heard that Drift Innovation will be releasing a 1700mAh battery sometime in the future, so you could be looking at some serious battery life. The camera also has input port for an external mic, for those shoots that require a bit more audio concentration. It comes with a strap to put it around your wrist, on handlebars or wherever else you may want it.
Boasting a user friendly design, the HD170 has a fool proof control panel, providing large buttons for things you need, eliminating unnecessary buttons to keep the body slim and streamlined.

While their website does list 720p as a lower-resolution option, it also indicates 1080p as the maximum resolution.

You can expect to record around 15 minutes for every gigabyte of storage space on your memory card. The manual with six languages already on it and the language on the camera can be changed easily in the menu settings. The helmet mount is designed to fit onto a helmet or smooth surface such as a bikes fairing. It makes it a dream to change menu settings and camera functions it also enables to set up your mounts correctly without trial and error and to review your footage on the spot, without needing a computer or external monitor. With previous narrower angle cameras it was difficult to gain perspective of the speed that you were going because the lens only saw the track in front of you.
