More Details about the SiOnyx Aurora Night Vision Camera
Apart from traditional photography, this device can also be used as a monocular. Its low light videos and viewfinder quality are better than those of any smartphones, thus portraying the different between ‘low light’ and ‘night vision’ capabilities. Most reviews suggest that users are highly impressed by the Aurora’s night vision capability. And, as night vision was limited to only a select group of devices mostly used for defense and security purposes by relevant sectors, the camera sporting the same technology surely depicts evolution in this field.
The SiOnyx Aurora night vision camera does not need any kind of infrared illumination to work, thus giving a natural output in terms of image quality. The sensors work with a small amount of light even as less as 0.5 LUX, to capture objects clearly. The device can shoot color photos and videos at 720p in extremely low light conditions, which is not the case with other products available at around the similar price.
In case of a comparison made between the Aurora camera with a smartphone’s shooting capability, the later are sometimes equipped with a so called ‘night mode’. However, the Aurora’s 4-second exposure shots are way better than any high-end smartphones equipped with quality cameras. SiOnyx is placing its product in the Action Cam market, mainly as there is very less competition. The company is also expected to create a distinct night-vision market at the price range mentioned above. Overall, the SiOnyx Aurora night vision camera does deliver what it promises in a device targeted towards civilian use.
