Cameras can do a lot of magic, especially when you’re talking about smartphone cameras. Mobile cameras, on the other hand, are pretty limited in where you can take them. And while action cameras like the GoPro are more rugged, they have even more limitations in what they can do, especially once the sun has set. Enter the SiOnyx Aurora, a one of a kind consumer action camera that has the uncanny ability to bring light even in the darkest of nights.

Night vision for boaters gets a whole light brighter with the SiOnyx Aurora, the world’s first water-resistant day/night camera.
We all know the frustration of trying to capture a gorgeous sunrise or sunset image only to find the results dark and murky. There are thermal night vision cameras for boaters, but they’re geared toward water rescues.
Enter the SiOnyx Aurora, a water-resistant hi-definition, color action-camera with true day and night imaging. Color night vision gives you the power to capture what your eyes see in minimal lighting. Take a look for yourself:
While Aurora gives night a whole new perspective, it also delivers high-quality daytime color recordings.
You can use your mobile device to control your Aurora, remotely view what your camera is seeing, and easily share capture moments with friends and family. Anglers will love the ability to extend their fishing hours.
SiOnyx Aurora is less than 8 ounces and sized to fit comfortably in one hand for easy operation. Available direct from SiOnyx at a retail price of $799, Aurora is based on the SiOnyx Ultra Low Light technology it developed with a new semiconductor process that dramatically enhances the infrared sensitivity of silicon-based imaging. Its ultra low-light technology enables richly-defined color images and video during the day and twilight, combined with unmatched high-resolution viewing in near total darkness.
