This Ion Twin Video Camera features, you’ve guessed it, two lenses and two microphones, artfully arranged so you can record the action in front of you, while at the same time capturing your reaction to the event. Sound scary? Agreed. This is obviously great for happy gatherings like little Tommy’s birthday, but what about those dodgy moments when Gran falls into the Christmas trifle bowl? Yeeeew. Priced at £129.00.
Not only does it have two camera lenses (one on each side, logically) that you can switch between while you record, it’s also got two microphones so that both sides of the conversation can be heard equally. This is a great tool for aspiring journalists bagging on-the-spot interviews, or anyone who thinks the human reaction to events is just as important as the event itself. All the standard features you’d expect on a modern video camera are present and correct – zoom, decent resolution and great frame rate – just to sweeten the deal.
