iON Adventure, GPS, Video Camera
iON Worldwide (http://www.ioncamera.com), the global consumer electronics company known for bringing Shoot/Share Wi-Fi connectivity to point-of-view (POV) cameras, today announced the iON Adventure, the latest addition to its iON line of action cameras. The iON Adventure re-invents the POV camera for long-distance and long-timespan activities, with GPS functionality, a unique loop recording mode and dual SD-card storage to ensure there is ample storage space available for wildlife seekers, climbers, hikers, travelers and other adventurers to effectively document and share their biggest moments, whether they involve summiting Mount Everest or reeling in a 200-pound Marlin.
The iON Adventure is one of three cameras iON is unveiling at CES 2013 in its quest to deliver a full line of cameras tailored to meet the diverse needs of a broad range of pro and consumer users. Also being announced are the iON Air Pro 2 -- the second-generation of the company's flagship Air Pro line, and the iON Speed Pro for motor and marine sports and racing.
A built-in GPS receiver, which allows users to add location, speed and altitude data to their videos, makes iON Adventure the ideal accessory for activities that take place over long distances and varied terrain, such as mountain biking, hiking/trekking, climbing, ATV-riding, deep-sea fishing, hunting and long-distance racing. The addition of GPS data also allows users to analyze their performance; for example, mountain climbers can use it to study how altitude changes affect their ascent.
Users whose adventures span hours, and even days, will especially appreciate the loop recording mode that allows for continuous, non-stop recording between two memory cards, eliminating the hassle of manually restarting recording and swapping out memory cards.
The camera also incorporates a vibration sensor that automatically starts and stops recording when it senses motion. These features ensure that users won't miss the "big moment."
