When Nik Wallenda crossed Niagara Falls on a tightrope in June, he brought a camera with him. It was also the first steps (pardon the pun) in the national distribution of that camera brand in Canada.
Gentec has the exclusive Canadian distribution agreement for the Ion Air Pro camera.
Aimed at professional and amateur photographers, adventurers, adrenalin junkies and recreational sports enthusiasts, the little Air Pro is called a professional sports action camera by the manufacturer, suitable for any sport.
Waterproof to 10 m without any outer case required, it lets you record in full HD video and 170-degree wide-angle.
The simple one-finger operation lets you capture video at the touch of a button, or take photos with its 5-megapixel camera (sequenced one at a time, three in one second, or one photo every 10, 20 or 30 seconds for time-lapse videos).
With the WiFi Podz (included with the WiFi kit or sold separately as an upgrade), the Air Pro is one of the first smartphone compatible action cameras that allows you to shoot high-definition video and share in real time via social networking sites.
The Ion Air Pro is available in three kit configurations. The basic kit, which includes a selection of accessories has a suggested retail price of $259.95.
The Air Pro Plus kit includes the Helmet & Bike Kit and retails for $319.95.
The Air Pro WiFi kit includes the helmet and bike mounts and adds WiFi functionality with the WiFi Podz at a suggested retail price of $379.95.
The Air Pro and Air Pro Plus can also be upgraded for WiFi functionality by purchasing the Air Pro Connect Kit, which includes the WiFi Podz and a battery booster.
All Ion cameras include 8GB of free cloud storage.
