2.0 out of 5 stars Basic camera, 17 July 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: iON Air Pro Wi-Fi Sports Action Camera/Camcorder (Mounts, Full HD, WaterProof, Shockproof) (Electronics)
This camera describes it's self as a action camera that captures everything on the go. The app boast instant uploads to social platforms and online storage.

As someone who does a lot of spontaneous filming/taking photos i was looking for an alternative to the GOPRO hero 3 black, so i decided to purchase this camera after seeing reviews online and including youtube. However in my experience i was disappointed with the cameras all round performance.

I have a helicopter that I attached the camera to and found that the camera suffers from what is deemed fisheye (which is something of a slight concave look).

On replaying the video and photographic footage it seems very grainy (regardless of the setting). Which brings me to the instant uploads to social media platforms and storage, I found this non existent.

When I contacted ION they confirmed that the grainy images,fisheye effect was characteristic of the camera. On the social media platform and storage front, they said that they are planning on rolling something out at some point via firmware in order to activate the storage feature. However they directed me to a third party software called mime in the mean time.

I think as a very basic camera it's ok however I feel the advertising stratergy they have adopted is very misleading. hence i returned the product (which was very easy) and went for the GOPRO hero 3 black, expensive but definitely worth the money.

When I contacted ION
