iON has released a couple of new cameras, called The Game and Adventure, that will help videographers capture all the important action in their sporty lives.
Although GoPro is the most popular action camera manufacturer in the world, there are other companies which are also doing a great job in this department. One of them is iON and it has just unveiled the final versions of two new products, which are aimed at improving the lives of sporty videographers.
iON Adventure camera captures full HD action videos
The first new action camera is the iON Adventure. It features a fixed-focus lens with an f/2.8 aperture and full HD video recording capabilities at 30 frames per second.
Adventure also supports 720p recording at 30fps and 60fps. It packs a 1/3-inch-type sensor with “super low-light sensitivity”. Both the white balance and exposure settings are controlled manually. It is worth noting that the device can capture photos as well.
Adventure is not afraid of water and loves WiFi
Videos are stored on a microSD card slot of up to 32GB, which should be enough to capture a little over four hours of footage. The Adventure comes with USB 2.0, HDMI, and composite ports among others.
A 1,200mAh Li-ion battery will power the action camera for up to two hours. A waterproof rating of 30 feet is in place, while one of its most important features consists of WiFi connectivity.
iON The Game does not mind shooting videos in low-light environments
The second camera, iON The Game, is packing similar features. Full HD video recording at 30fps, 720p movies at 30fps or 60fps, f/2.8 fixed focus lens, 32GB microSD card slot, Auto White Balance / Exposure, and USB 2.0 / HDMI / Composite ports.
Its sensor is a 1/2.5-inch-type CMOS which is also super sensitive to light, thus providing improved video recording in dark environments.
WiFi is there along with a 2.4-inch LCD screen
iON The Game is a WiFi-enabled camera and packs a 1,200mAh battery, just like the Adventure. Its waterproof rating stretches to 10 feet, which is not as good as that of the aforementioned action camcorder.
Nevertheless, an important feature of The Game is its 2.4-inch LCD. This cannot be found in the Adventure and, since both share the same price of $299.99, it is up to you to decide which model is the right one for you.
