Gear Review: iON Air Pro WiFi POV Videocam

The Air Pro is the quickest, most responsive point-of-view camera we've tested.

Attention, action junkies: The Air Pro is the quickest, most responsive point-of-view camera we’ve tested. The tiny, 1.8 x 4.2-inch bullet-shaped casing is waterproof, tough, and can be mounted to helmets, skis, surfboards, bikes, trekking poles, tripods, and heads. “I kept it clamped to my trekking pole, where it withstood 24 miles of punching through savagely overgrown trails in Tasmania,” says one tester. “This allowed me to get stable footage, and boom it high or low for interesting angles.”

Extra cool: The iON connects to your smartphone via built-in WiFi, allowing you to post clips directly to Facebook or YouTube (with an internet connection). Tradeoff: Video and still images are on the lower end of the quality spectrum. $350; micro SD card; 5 oz.; ioncamera.com
