This whole action camcorder market is really starting to heat up. Everyone already knows about the GoPro Hero and I recently wrote about the Swann Freestyle HD, but it looks like we have yet another contender for the extreme video crown. Even though it might look like a glorified flashlight, what you see here is the iON Action Pro camcorder and it’s purpose-built with totally radical video in mind.

As with other adventure-minded camcorders, the iON Action Pro has been ruggedized to survive the rough and tumble as you tear down the mountain on your snowboard or bike. It’s also waterproof up to 50 feet (IPX8), so you can take it along with you when you go surfing. That’s quite unlike the GoPro and the Swann, as those require an external casing to be fully waterproof. The barrel-like design of the iON is a little different in that regard too.

The core specs are in line with the competition though. You get a fixed focus lens with a 170-degree wide angle view in 720p, which gets narrowed down to 127-degrees when you shoot in 1080p. There’s a mono mic, HDMI and composite out, 1100mAh Li-ion battery, f/2.8 aperture, 5MP photo resolution, microSD slot, and USB 2.0 connectivity.

Look for it on February 28th for about $300.
