SiOnyx, an imaging-technology company, has launched the Aurora HD action video camera with day and night color imaging. SiOnyx says it has developed a new semiconductor process that dramatically enhances the infrared sensitivity of silicon-based imaging. Its ultra-low-light technology enables color images and video during the day and twilight, combined with high-­resolution viewing in near total darkness. Through the free companion apps on iOS and Android systems, anglers can review their experiences in real-time or control the Aurora directly from their phones. Aurora also carries an IP67 waterproof rating, weighs just under 8 ounces, and fits comfortably in one hand. The camera costs $799.
