Digital Night Vision: SiOnyx Aurora Review

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


We’re talking a break in our general exploration of digital night vision to talk about a specific product that is available today. The SiOnyx Aurora is a 720p camera with good visible and IR light sensitivity, a bunch of extra features not found on regular night vision devices, and pretty low price. Spoilers: We love this device for every application EXCEPT actual combat.

Dear God use black and white mode. Screw color mode.

For non tactical applications the addition of an IR light would improve this camera significantly.

Think Big says:

Wow, you're a very impressive reviewer. Congrats and thanks. Think I will wait for a next gen Aurora with at least 1080p, whenever that is.

Chris Leach says:

Thank you for your review. I much prefer these "long, boring" videos. Lucas comes off as pompous and trying way too hard. The animations and information are fantastic. Keep it up!

UARAF16 says:

Isaac's videos are top notch.

victorpapaavp says:

Since you can charge it through the Micro USB, could you in theory attach a power bank to it and run it while charging for potentially longer than the typical 2 hour battery life? anyone have an experience with this? Or is the power draw too fast for the charging speed?
