Drift intros innovative 1080p sports video camera

Drift Innovation has revealed a new sport action camera, the HD170, that can record 1080p videos and has a 170-degree wide-angle lens. The lens will also rotate across a 300-degree range, and a side-mounted LCD screen will let users frame their shot with the camera mounted on the side of a helmet or vehicle, for example.

There is otherwise a night-shooting mode, along with an RF remote control for triggering or stopping the recording functionality. The HD170 can also be put into a continuous photo mode, where a shot is taken every few seconds until the storage space runs out. It shoots 5-megapixel photos, and there is just 32MB of built-in memory. Most recording takes place on SDHC cards up to 32GB.

While an internal microphone is standard, an external microphone is offered for eliminating wind noise when the camera is mounted on the outside of vehicles or other fast-moving objects. The camera is also water resistant up to nearly two feet.

The HD170 ships late in July, priced at $330. [via CultofMac]
