iOn Air Pro 3 review: Ready to shoot and share in or out of the water

 

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 WiFi review: Ion Air Pro WiFi

 

The Ion Air Pro is waterproof up to 30 meters and shock resistant. HD video is easy to capture with the record slider. Photos can be captured without stopping video capture. Wi-Fi Podz add-on allows syncing, remote viewing, and simple controls via an...

The nonrotating lens makes orienting shots at odd angles tricky. No SD card is included in the box.

The standard Ion Air Pro is a rugged sports camcorder that is easy to use with many thoughtful features, but the addition of Wi-Fi and app connectivity makes it a truly standout camera.

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.

Ion Air Pro

 

Ready for action? The Ion Air Pro is. It looks like a torch, but it's an action camera with some serious skills, and a wide 170 degree field of view, so you won't miss anything in the replay. It can even connect to your iPhone to act as a viewfinder....

We love the simplicity of the Ion Air Pro, and how its settings and lack of screen just force you to shoot and go when you’re on location, but depending on what sports you’re into, that could be limitation more than a blessing. In the end, it’s hard to...

"great concept with terrible user friendliness"

 

This cam would be amazing if it did all the things that sold me on it. I paid extra so I could live stream and use my smartphone as a way to monitor the quality/angle of the pics and vids. When trying to set up the cam to my phone there are a a lot of...

I like the design of the case and the simple design concept.

image stability is not as great as they say and the overall reliable is terrible.

" ion camera POS"

 

I contacted ion's customer support and they said, "Sorry." Sorry? You're sorry? I have a $250 POS and all ion can say is "sorry". ion customer service said a 64G micro SD card can make it NOT behave properly. Who ever heard of such a thing? Canon?...

can't think of any

Doesn't work, vibrates when turning on and won't stop/ inoperable

Works well, needs some refinements

 

Over all a very nice camera, and you couldn't beat the sale price. There are two things I have problems with. 1. No Mac OS app, there is a Windows app that shows up on the "HDD" when plugged in but no Mac one. You have to down load either the iOS or...
