SJCAM unveils ION range of 4K action cameras

Action camera specialist SJCAM has added a range of three new models to its range. The ION Series is designed to follow on from the company's SJ8 Series and is aiming for the best action camera at a variety of prices – although all three models feature 4K shooting, WiFi connectivity and waterproofing down to depths of 30m.
