Pro's: Excellent video/picture quality
Installed mic is ok but I used an external mic which works great!
Love the way that it mounts to my helmet with the side-ball mount
Field of view is nice
Nice colors with the blue and black
Takes up to a 64gig memory card
2.5-3hr battery life without Wi-Fi turned on (lasted all day!)
The vibration against the helmet when turning it on, recording or shutting it down took out all of the guess work as to what mode the camera was in...VERY COOL! (And easy to operate with gloves on)
Cons: Very noticeable wash out when operating in shadow and bright backgrounds (sitting in the shadows, the outside surroundings may as well not even be there however the shadow areas are nicely in view vs. blacked out.
Wi-Fi view on my android was tiny. The ION APP for this is kind of crappy!
Once the battery is gone…the camera is gone
For me the Pro's outweigh the Con's. It works for me
First, I will get right to it. The auto-rotate only works when playing with Apple QuickTime. Period. Not Windows Media Player, not the Android ION app, not through a direct HDMI link to a TV. I have been communicating with ION's tech support for about 3 weeks now, and no matter what the issue, their canned response was "It is your Micro SD card". The firmware update program would not work because of my card, the auto-rotate would not work because of my card. This was grossly misleading. They need to get to know their product better. The first clue should have been that the video only writes to the older Apple .MOV format. The camera is probably writing tags to the file for the orientation that only QuickTime (and maybe an iPhone) know how to interpret. It turns out the firmware update program was failing because ION moved their firmware update servers to a new address without any redirects to the new location. One of the techs admitted it to me. A fiddler trace confirmed it. Nice way to treat your customers. On the advice of the majority of my calls, I bought 5 Micro SD Cards. The first I used is a 128 GB XC1 Class 10, then a 64 GB XC1 Class 10, then two 32 GB HC1 Class 30's (80 MB/s), then a 32 GB HC1 Class 10 (48 MB/s). First they told me my card was too big for the camera. So I bought smaller cards. Still too big. So I bought smaller cards. Then they said they were "too fast for the camera". What??! Then they said the camera would only support a class 6, 8, or 10. Couldn't you tell everyone this upfront??! Despite everything they said, EVERY CARD I USED TOOK PICTURES AND VIDEO! When I mentioned once that the larger 64 GB worked, they said it was too fast and would ruin the camera. What? I am quite familiar with hard disk speeds. If the disk IO is rated faster than the bus can handle, it will just (figuratively) sit on its hands for a few cycles. Like higher amperage chargers, the device will only use what it needs.
So, the Pros:
1) The camera takes video at outstanding quality. The wide angle lens is amazing, with somewhere around 170 degree field of vision. At 30 frames per second, it was a bit grainy with 1080 pixels. At 60 fps, it was breathtaking.
2) The Wi-Fi to my phone worked well. The camera appears to broadcast itself like a Wi-Fi access point.
3) The metal casing was solid, including the threads. Well made. Every aspect of the hardware is solid and well done.
4) Auto rotate and the firmware update program worked on all of my cards. I had to send the camera back to the factory in NJ to get them to update the firmware, after that, I was able to perform an additional firmware update on my 128 GB XC card. If their firmware update servers are online, it appears to work fine.
1) Customer service really needs to get to know their product better. It is as if all the engineers that made the product left, or they didn't document anything -- or both, leaving tech support to guess at the issues. Customer support/advertizing issue.
2) I spent alot of money and time buying cards each time they told me one facet of my card wouldn't work with the camera. It had a 10-day round trip back to the factory, when there turned out to be nothing wrong with the camera. It was working as designed. If there was one thing I would like to say to the techs, it would be "THE PROBLEM IS NOT THE CARD!" Firmware issue.
3) After I discovered that the auto-rotate only rendered right in QuickTime, I went back and re-played all of my test videos. They would play upright in QuickTime, but nothing else. Firmware issue.
4) While the camera has a clock that can sync with my PC’s clock or be set manually, there is not option to put a date/time stamp on the video. I found out from a friend’s experience that if you take this to court to prove your case, the judge will throw it out because there is not date or date/time stamp. Firmware issue.
5) They are not using a more standard, more current video file format like mpeg-4. The .MOV format is Apple's older format. Apple switched to .M4V a while ago. The firmware needs to be updated to use newer technology. In fact, the firmware and the misguided advice from tech support calls are at the root of my ire. When QuickTime rotates the video, it is now a very tall rectangle -- not very useful for displaying on a computer or TV. Because the auto-rotate won't work with anything other than QuickTime, this camera will not work for me.
Firmware won't update, auto-rotate doesn't work. First, let me say that the camera appears to not be the problem. It seems to let me take pictures. The red light won't stop blinking though. My PC is able to see the 32 GB HD memory card I just bought for it and put in, and I can run the windows "ion.exe" program that gets put on it. It detects that a firmware update is available for it, but after I click "download" it comes back with "Checking failed. Please try again". The problem appears to be with the download site. I called your voice support 3 times today. First, the gentleman let me know that my 64 GB xc card wouldn't work (it says it will on Amazon) and I needed to get a 32 GB hd card. I went out and bought one, but the results were the same. I called, and he told me to manually reformat the card. I plugged it into the SD adapter and did a quick and then later a full format. It still wouldn't find/download the firmware update. The third call said they were closed for the day. My Android phone is able to connect to it through the WiFi, but says right off that I need to update the firmware of the camera for the app to work right. The Android app does seem to be able to take pictures, but I found the auto-rotate feature isn't working. I found a video on you-tube where someone said his wouldn't work either, so support shipped him a mount that had a 90 degree bend to it. I paid alot for the high-end version of this camera. I don't want to return it, but if these can't be fixed it will be a deal-breaker.

I have had 2 goPros that cost WAY more and the video is just as good
