Drift HD Ghost
($300; driftinnovation.com)

With a 300-degree rotating lens, two-way remote control and LCD screen, the Drift HD Ghost comes prepared to go to work. By far the biggest camera we tested, the Ghost's lens is the device's best feature, built from Drift's patented "Gorilla Glass" and adjustable to compensate for unleveled mounting. With size comes perks like the built-in LCD screen, offering users a intuitive menu and easy framing of shots. Big props as well for a remote control that tells you when the camera is recording from a distance— a plus for remote shooting. There's WiFi, external mic compatibility and a start/stop button that's hard to use. Image quality was fine but users wanting high-quality slow motion will want to look elsewhere, as the camera shoots only 720p at 60fps.
