iOn Air Pro 3


What sets the iOn Air Pro 3 apart from much of its competition is its design.

The iOn Air Pro 3 is a simple-to-operate 1080p action cam that's waterproof without needing a housing; has very good video quality; and a nice feature set and accessory options for easily adding Wi-Fi or wireless remote control. Its 60fps and 120fps...

Taking advantage of its high-frame-rate video capture and Wi-Fi will shorten battery life, which wouldn't be so bad if the battery wasn't built in. Using the higher frame rates also limits a couple of the camera's other features.

A fun, flexible action cam, the iOn Air Pro 3 keeps things simple without sacrificing video or build quality, making it an excellent option for those who just want to go out and shoot -- in or out of the water.

iON Air Pro 2


Despite the large number of action cams on the market, many of them aren't waterproof without a housing. Some of them can't even be mounted without some sort of casing.

The iON Air Pro 2 is a simple-to-operate 1080p action cam that's waterproof without needing a housing; has very good video quality and battery life; and a nice feature set and accessory options for easily adding Wi-Fi, an extra battery, or wireless...

The camera's audio quality isn't great (though there is an external mic jack if needed); only one adhesive helmet mount is included; and its Android app is currently a work in progress.

One of the better action cam options available, the iON Air Pro 2 improves on the original, while still offering a good value.

iON Air Pro


The iON Air Pro HD action camcorder is compact but powerful. Find out how it stacks up to the competition in our comprehensive reviews.

The small and durable design makes this action camcorder truly portable

The action camcorder can only go to a depth of 30 feet underwater

We recommend this compact camcorder for its durability and portability.

good simple to use camera with great HD video/pic


Like the camera so far. Will be keeping it. Good deal at 150 bucks onsale. get a good mount and have fun with it! To me gopros are over rated as I own a few already. Drift has a few sweet pieces also. For the price tho you will not get a better bang...

HD, on/off vibration, slide switch and its recording, wifi, can view on most devices right after shooting

battery life is poor when using wifi, having issues retrieveing files to edit, can view no problem

Great other than Wi-Fi Feature


The camera works very well and using it without the wi-fi was great. But, because I couldn't get the wi-fi feature to work, I wasn't able to use the features that were built in to the camera. I did call their customer service and, unfortunately, they...

Price vs competitors and features

Wi-Fi Feature did not work

Very handy POV camera


Excellent camera for a beginner. Shoots 30 and 60 fps...which does not allow for good slow motion shots. I'd wait until you can get the Air Pro 3...which shoots 120 fps. Otherwise, a great product with awesome WiFi capabilities.

Great picture and movie quality

Battery life is SHORT. Does not shoot 120 fps

Great camera for RC cars


We bought this camera to record our RC adventures. It is easy to get started with. Love that is has it's own wi-fi so that we can share our videos while on the go. Works much better than the go pro for what we use it for.

Easy to set up and use, good picture quality

Mounting capabilities

Great for a Dashcam!


I bought two of these for my sons for Christmas! They are teens and have a tendency to get a little more attention from our local PD than the normal teens in my town. One officer in particular so hopefully this will help all of us out! They love them...

Small, has sound and awesome photo quality

Needs a car charger and longer run time
