SiOnyx Aurora Sport Water-Resistant Day/Night Camera

SiOnyx Aurora Sport

As an extreme adventure-seeking traveler who is on the road more than at home, I have a number of cameras for different experiences and travels. My i-Phone is my go-to camera since it’s always handy. I tend to bring my Go-Pro everywhere I go as well. Additionally, when I need to capture images at a distance, I turn to my DSLR Canon EOS Rebel T5i for the perfect shot. The one aspect, though, that none of these cameras is top-notch is night shots. The SiOnyx Aurora Sport is the answer to this dilemma. While it’s video is limited to 720p and photos to 1280×720, it can take them in near darkness which puts the SiOnyx Aurora Sport in its own unique camera and video category, especially since when it’s in night mode, it operates as a Full Spectrum camera with the IR/UV Cut filter removed. It transforms the way I can capture photos during the night and has found a spot in my essential travel list.

More importantly, it’s perfect for those who want to capture action after dark, something that no other action camera can do. It not only captures images under low-light conditions, but gives you true night vision capability in monochrome or in color.

Here are some examples of the Aurora Sport night vision camera in action

It was completely dark at the community park yet look at how the Sionyx Aurora Sport’s sensor is able to illuminate the scene. It picks up grass, the water, and the trees in the background. The first photo is from my iPhone XS Max camera. It hardly picks up the water fountain and a different shade for the sky, but it doesn’t allow you to pick up the rest of the scene.

Similarly, in this photo of a bunny that I could see with the Aurora Sport, I couldn’t see him at all with my phone or my eyes. It was only when I held the Aurora Sport up to my eye could I see the bunny at all. I was able to track him with the camera and capture a photo from a distance because he didn’t know I was there.

Here is a daytime shot with the SiOnyx Aurora Sport. It doesn’t have the 12 megapixels quality of my iPhone XS Max yet it still does a great job capturing the light and colors.

Inside, the Aurora Sport did an excellent job capturing the beauty of my new Goldendoodle puppy, Piper.

The SiOnyx Aurora Sport HD action camera’s low-light sensor technology enables you to see things the human eye can’t, and then capture the incredible experience. Day-only use cameras are capable of higher resolution–while still remaining physically small– because they only need very small pixels. But true night vision requires big pixels. Aurora is affordable access to action through advanced technology that captures the best adventures of your days and your nights, truly.
