Small additions in name mark the product that has kept everything good from the previous models and provided significant upgrades. What’s the same are the swiveling lens placed at the front that allows you to even out your shots, pretty straightforward control buttons on top of the product, a two-way remote and the great 2 inches wide Gorilla Glass screen whose sturdiness is a must for an action camera. Wi-Fi connectivity, external mic plug, waterproof feature to the depths of 9.8 ft and video tagging are also available with both models.
What’s new? The processor is faster, the lens is the new 7-element aspherical piece and the sensor is the 12-megapizel CMOS one by Sony. The improvements combine to provide automatically adjusting sensitivity of low-light capturing and noticeably better picture altogether.
The processor brought about the possibility to shoot in the resolution of 1080p at the doubled maximum frame rate of 60 frames per second compared to the previous product. If you opt for 720p you can even use the frame rate of 120 fps.
For very versatile film-like action shooting you can use the Clone Mode that allows you to control several Ghost-S cameras from one master action camera.
All of the improvements were expected to put additional pressure on the battery time, but it has actually increased. The Ghost-S can provide half an hour more footage than the Ghost. For example, this means that you can capture 3.5 hours of footage at 1080p at 30 fps.
