Экшн камера ion
The mobile action cam market isn't new; just look at companies such as GoPro and Contour HD. While the Ion Air Pro Wi-Fi provides a Wi-Fi Podz, and can synchronise with Ion Air’s iOS application. It will also flip the orientation of the image in the video, so you don't record upside down. The ION captures 1080p video but users are required to purchase a microSD memory card.
Like other action cameras, the ION Air Pro HD is compatible with helmet mounts, but the mount - or CamLOCK, as ION calls it - has been designed so you can just swivel the camera around to adjust its position. Tomaselli plans to release other versions of Podz in the coming months, including one that will function as a wireless remote for the camera and one that works a microphone.
And with years of experience designing cameras for Kodak, Casio and Nikon, he is confident his latest creation will knock the other action cams off their feet. Between big guns like GoPro and Contour and big names like Sony, the action camera market is getting pretty full, pretty fast. The Game records to SD cards and will be arriving by the end of the year, priced at an admittedly lofty €329 here in Europe.
The WiFi meanwhile, adheres to the company's whole "shoot-and-share" motto, letting to send videos directly to Facebook and the like.
Other features on the new Ion Air Pro action camera include a waterproof microphone, and even the ability to flip the video picture if it ends up shooting upside down. The Ion Air Pro camera is available in three different packages depending on your needs.
This sports cam is intended to be more stationary than its predecessor -- mounted on a still spot to capture soccer games (don't let them catch you calling it that here in Europe) and to help you critique your golf swing.
The bottom of the circular camera has a little opening where you can attach small circular modules or Podz. The Ion Air Pro is lighter than the Hero2 action cam, and is waterproof to 30ft without the need for additional casings. It'll get the job done though, when it comes to monitoring action (or lack of action, we guess) on the fly.
The key differences here -- aside from its boxier shape -- are the 2.5-inch display and the WiFi, which is built directly into the device, rather than relying on an add-on. The camera looks reasonably rugged, with a plastic protected lens -- it's also water-resistant up to 10 meters.
