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.

Poor software mars this otherwise well-designed action camera

iON Air Pro 2 Wi-Fi


iON's Air Pro 2 Wi-Fi provides wireless app operation and rugged waterproofing in an action camera format.

Robust and waterproof to 10m ; Wireless operation via Android or iOS device ; Microphone input

Only helmet mount included in box ; Microphone input not usable with PODZ accessory attached ; App or desktop software required to change most settings

The bundled accessories are reasonable, if not entirely comprehensive. The Air Pro 2 has a standard screw hole on the bottom with notch, so a regular tripod can be used. However, there's a Gorillapod-like tripod included, and a quick-release plate iON...

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 camera, easy to use, already waterproof.


Great camera and is easy to use, just slide the record button forward and it starts recording. Has an external micro SD disk slot. The iON cloud software is horrible, much easier to remove the disk and watch video on your computer. With the iON...

Waterproof case, small and cylinder instead of a bulking square box

Video quality is dimished somewhat at high speeds like on a motorcycle, otherwise has a great picture

For the price I paid (in store $125)


For the price I paid (in store $125) probably the best action camera on the market today. I did a lot of research before deciding on the iOn air pro 2, I watched a lot of reviews on YouTube and compared it to a friends gopro hero 3 black. The iOn can...

easy to use, easy to set up

What I Wanted


Exactly what I wanted. Great action camera for theme parks and snorkeling. Video quality is great and is easy to turn on at the right moment.Only negative is that it's too bulky to mount on chest, but all cameras except GoPro will be the same.
