Gear Junkie POV.HD Review

“I was a member of the media crew during the 2011 Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race, a week-long event, and for the whole time — including a 30-hour trek were I chased the first-place team! — the VIO.HD was at my side. Despite Patagonia’s best attempts to shut it down (wind, rain, rivers, swamps. . . and did I mention the rain!), the VIO kept ticking. Indeed, after most of the media crew had put their cameras away during parts of the race, the VIO stayed out and kept shooting. ” – Sam Salwei – GearJunkie

Top 10 Summer Design Gadgets

The POV.HD was recently named one of the Top 10 Summer Design Gadgets (for boys) by letitflow.com.

“What summer adventure would be complete without video footage that can last for an eternity online? Mount this sucker on your helmet, goggles, or wherever you can think of and you will have embarrassing footage in no time. This will also free your hands for other… stuff. ” – Maria Jansson

Best Cycle Accessories – POV.HD

“Helmet cams have become required bike gear in this age of YouTube and rampant narcissism. VIO’s latest is one of the most technologically advanced—offering in-the-field tagging options and the ability to adjust exposure while riding—while still being able to stand up to rough use thanks to a wireless remote.” – www.elevationoutdoors.com

The Money Times POV.HD Review

“The battle to be the ‘numero uno’ in the POV camera market is heating up every day and this new product from V.I.O is surely one of the frontrunner in the race.” – www.themoneytimes.com

London Bikers POV.HD Review

“The POV.HD is V.I.O.’s response to video professionals and riders who demand advanced high-definition video with vibrant colour and superior control that excels in extreme environments. Ideal for both on and off road disciplines that place huge stress on camera equipment.” – londonbikers.com


“When you see helmet-cam footage in ski and snowboard films, odds are it came from the POV, which favors reliability over versatility. The burly, pro-level 1080p unit uses a heavy A/V cable to connect the 142-degree lens to a handheld monitor/control unit.”- WIRED

Uncrate POV.HD Review

Whether you simply want to record your sporting exploits or you’re shooting an FPS film noir, the V.I.O. POV.HD Camera should be at the top of your gear list. Offering a super-wide field of view when shooting in 1080p HD — it’s slightly less when shooting in the slow-mo 60fps 720p mode — the POV.HD also features a shock-, dust-, and water-proof housing, a wireless remote, in-field editing and exposure control, SDHC storage, and the ability to mount to goggles, a helmet, or anywhere else that seems appropriate. – Uncrate

Engadget POV.HD Review

“It’s time for another new entrant into the increasingly crowded pov camera fray, a high-end selection for current or budding professionals — or well-heeled amateurs. It’s the POV.HD from V.I.O. and, if you hadn’t guessed, it shoots footage in high definition. Properly high as it were, up to 1080p30, though it’ll happily make stops at 720p30, 720p60, and even a tasty 1080p24 along the way.” – Engadget

Military Times Gear Scout – POV.HD Review

“Shoving everything into a single camera body is an exercise in compromise. There’s a limit to what you can fit in a wearable camera and the only way to get high quality video with all the onboard controls and a monitor is two use a two piece system. The VIO runs a small, lipstick style camera attaches by a wire to a handheld unit with a usable monitor and processing power to spare. 720p video at 30 FPS with a 142 degree field of view is par for the market. But add the monitor, loop record feature, in-camera editing and a wireless remote control and is makes the wire seem like like an acceptable inconvenience instead of a deal breaker.” – militarytimes.com
