The Aurora is a colour night vision camera, manufactured by SiOnyx. Capable of both day-time, low-light and night-time recording in colour, phosphor green and greyscale through SiOnyx’s own patented Ultra Low-Light Sensor Technology. This technology transforms the viewing experience.
The Aurora is designed for fast setting changes, featuring an intuitive switch and dial set-up. The scene ring allows for a custom viewing experience for different times of day and the settings dial allows for fast operating mode changes. Users can also adjust the lens focus and diopter.
The camera has on-board recording, with up to 60 frames a second for video in HD and still photos with shutter speeds up to 1/8000th of a second. The Aurora also features Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) which helps to minimise blur and compensates for camera shake.
The device includes a variety of camera recording modes, including: burst mode, time-lapse, panoramic view, self-timer, loop mode, slo-mo (shutter control) and HDR (High Dynamic Range).
The device features on-board WiFi, meaning the Aurora can be remote-controlled, live-viewed and can share captured images & videos with the SiOnyx Aurora App via a smartphone or tablet.
An internal, electronic compass and GPS allow the user to maintain their bearings as well as, automatically geo-tag images and videos for later use.
The Aurora can be mounted in a variety of ways, including Picatinny (Picatinny mount sold separately). The combination of the Aurora’s Quick Release Picatinny Rail Mount, image invert & angle settings and loop mode means you can mount the camera anywhere on your rifle (rail permitting), as well as capture photos & videos without upset. Loop Mode automatically records when a rifle has been fired, with a choice of capturing 15 seconds before & after, 30 seconds before or 30 seconds after firing.
The Aurora’s compact size and robust bodyshell make it the best tool for outdoor action and weighing in at less than 227 grams (under 8 ounces) make it even easier to carry. Perfect for outdoor sports and activities, with a built-in lens protector, 6000j shock-resistance and IP67 rating for dust-resistance, splash-proof and water-resistance of up to 3 feet for 30 minutes.
