At the recent NAMM Show, an annual music and media event held in Anaheim, California, January 14-17, 2010, we were able to get a sneak preview of the Ion Twin Video, a video camera designed with video bloggers and video podcasters in mind.

The Ion Twin Video is the world’s first video recorder with front and back lenses. This means it can film both you and what you are doing, from your perspective, at the same time.

Here’s what Ion has to say about the Twin Video:

This easy-to-use camera makes vlogging, or video blogging, easy thanks to a few live editing features. Users will enjoy TWIN VIDEO’s front and rear lenses that they can control independently. While recording, TWIN VIDEO enables users to select and swap which picture is being recorded, split the screen to view both video feeds and even inlay picture in picture to create exactly the desired effect.

While TWIN VIDEO has powerful, advanced features and capabilities, users will find that it fits easily into their everyday lives thanks to its compact, handheld size. This web-friendly video device is designed to meet the needs of today’s highly social web. TWIN VIDEO creates videos that are perfect for sharing on Web sites such as YouTube.

Here’s Ion’s demo video, which offers examples of what the Ion Twin Video can do:

The concept behind the Ion Twin Audio is great. The quality of the video we’ve seen, though, isn’t HD and isn’t especially great for HD. The contact we talked to said the Twin Audio is still in development, though, and final specs are to be determined.

The Ion Twin Video will be available in Q2 2010. Pricing is TBA.


TWIN VIDEO records onto a standard SD or SDHC card so users will find it to be compatible with a wide range of cards and readers including those built into many of the latest Mac and PC computers.

An included DUO STAND dual-function handle and table stand make holding and stable placement of TWIN VIDEO easy. Users can operate the TWIN VIDEO on either its internal, rechargeable battery, or plugged into a wall-power source. It connects via USB to virtually any Mac or PC for easy video transfer.
