        Comments about ION Twin Video Dual Lens Handheld Video Camera:

        Wanted a simple video cam to show some students guitar instruction etc. Works fine for that. Stupid Deal of the Day price was so low I should have bought a second one. Cannot complain about anything based on the price....my cons listed are just pointing things out. Just understand that the whole camera is flimsy plastic and the switches, I doubt, will not last very long if not treated with TLC. Treat it with TLC and it will be fine for a long time. Excellent deal for the money. If you want good mics and better video, dig deeper into your pocket. If you need to record simple videos for posting on the web, it will do the trick for very little money.

              Best Uses

                Comments about ION Twin Video Dual Lens Handheld Video Camera:

                I needed a little video cam to shoot quick guitar lessons. I wanted a Video Cam like the old FLIP Video cam.

                This little 'bare bones' cam fills the bill. And it's mountable on a tri-pod or a mic stand (with the included adapter).

                Just simple and obvious controls to get this thing going out of the box. Shoot forward or backwards which is great for framing 'selfies'. Close-up shooting is perfect for shooting hand positions on the fret-board. And it's an easy dump to the computer to edit.

                But the price on the STUPID DEAL OF THE DAY is what I went for. Well worth the money for the price.

                And now for the 'cons':

                The mics on board aren't anything to write home about and there is no way to plug in externally. Don't expect to make the band's next music video for VH1 on this.

                The 'remote' trigger thingy that is included only switches between forward or backwards shooting, not turning on and off the recording like you'd think it should (real dumb).

                It doesn't seem too rugged so I wouldn't be tossing it around in the bottom of the gig bag.

                All and all, considering the utility and the price, I'd buy it again and just might for a 'back-up'.

                Great Dual lens camera but too expensive!!

                Comments about ION Twin Video Dual Lens Handheld Video Camera:

                Great camera too expensive
                This is a great little dual lense camera, this camera do not offer a lot of features other than the dual lense... but is extremelly overpriced here. Do your research and you will pay less than 3 times the price for a new one
                A bit flimsy, not very sturdy
                Too expensive for what it offers

                Seems well-made. Will have to wait to see how durable it is.
                Great value for the money.

                Specialized Camera

                By Bart Cohen

                from Fayetteville, AR

                Comments about ION Twin Video Dual Lens Handheld Video Camera:

                I really feel that good video quality would have made this thing useful as a regular video camera (it would easily trump a Flip), therefore, it missed the mark.
                This little toy is highly specialized. It has a forward lens, a rear lens, and a teethered switch to toggle between the two. It also comes with an adapter to make a tripod out of a microphone stand. it uses USB to recharge the included battery. (I have not tested the battery life) I will use it in a 5th grade classroom for kids to do interviews (interviewer <click> interviewee with no video edits necessary!)
                The unit quality is average. The video quality is poor.
                I bought it as a "Stupid Deal". If I needed one enough to pay the regular price, I would not be happy.

                Adequate - Nice accessories

                By John Brayton

                from SoCal

                Comments about ION Twin Video Dual Lens Handheld Video Camera:

                You should not have to pay much for this camera. Apparently, it can be sold for a very low price by reputable online stores, so why pay too much? You'll be very disappointed with this camera if you pay too much. I probably can't mention prices here, but consider that I ended up buying 2 of these due to defects in each that I could work around, but in the end, I just kept both since they were so cheap and just having the spare battery and accessories was worth keeping both.
                Features are adequate. The dual lens makes this camera unique and is the only reason to purchase it should you need this feature. There are no other outstanding features offered by this camera. Rolling shutter generates videos of cell phone quality.
                I've had my hands on 3 of these cameras. The first one had a piece of debris inside the lens area that showed up as a black spot on videos and pictures. I set up an RMA to send it back, but before I sent it back, I dropped the camera on the carpet which dislodged the dirt in the lens, but I sent it back anyway thinking that it could come back again. Well, the replacement camera had an issue with the playback mode in that it would stop and start videos randomly. It also once created a corrupted file on a SD card when shooting a long video. I set up another RMA to return the camera but had the new camera sent to me before sending back the old one so I could just figure out which of the two cameras worked the best and send back the other. Well, each one had quirks, so in the end, I just kept both so between the two cameras, all features work. Sounds strange, but that's the way it worked out.
                I am giving this a low rating primarily due to the price it is selling for on MF. Even as a special promo on MF, it is more than twice what I paid for it at another popular and reputable online site. If you want to buy this camera, don't pay very much for it and you might be happy with what it does for the price. Please, do not pay too much for this camera. The price I see it for now is ludicrous.

                This is only a toy.

                Comments about ION Twin Video Dual Lens Handheld Video Camera:

                Good for internet video only.
                I am in no way a video snob. If something works well I will be the first to praise it. This isn't one of those times. The concept of this video camera is excellent. The ease of use is a 10. The download ability is also very good. So what's wrong? Well the video may look great on the small screen of the ION camera but once it is full size on a 19 inch (or better) computer screen you will be shocked at how distorted and fuzzy it looks. It is ok for a quick low quality YouTube video but if your are buying this for just about any other reason, save you money. I still own this camera and am about to sell it on Ebay. Within a few weeks of buying the ION I bought a Cisco Flip camera that is HD quality for less than the price of this ION (even on sale) and it shoots excellent quality video. The Flip is high quality HD video with a built in USB that goes directly into the computer and provides editing software that automatically loads from the camera itself on any computer it is plugged in to that is extremely easy to use. The bottom line is this ION is only good for low quality web videos not something you want to keep like personal family videos or anything important. Either my camera is defective somehow (I doubt it) it is just a toy. Sorry, that's the truth.
                If it shot clear video it would be great. A great package that can't deliver a good video.

                I haven't had tis camera long, but so far it is really neat. It is EXTREMELY lightweight. It comes with a handle that screws into the tripod hole for more stability, it also comes with a wrist band, case, USB cord, and a "you/me" cord button. I got is as the "stupid deal of the day" and it is really good for the price so far.
