New IronX action video camera streams to smartphones

Video sharing and control via iPhone or Android

With GoPro owning the lion's share of the consumer video action camera market, IronX has thrown its hat into the ring as an alternative system. The IronX HD video camera can stream live video to mobile devices, plus it can be recorded with either a wrist remote or a free smartphone app.

The $249 IronX comes with a waterproof wrist remote and case, plus four mounts. It can be controlled on the unit itself, or with free IronX apps on iPhones or and Android smartphones.

The included 2.4G RF wrist remote lets users take still and time-lapse photos, plus stop and start the video camera.
