Last year at SHOT we covered a company producing a different type of action camera–MOHOC. What is better about these cameras, in my opinion, is that they are not only more discreet than the GoPros that we are all familiar with, but they are inherently more rugged. You don’t need extra accessories to get a water/drop proof camera.
They are definitely more targeted for military/LE demographics, especially with the ability to stream content over compatible tactical radios, and yes, wifi to your phone (and their phone app is like a million times better than GoPro’s abomination).
This year their new offering is an Infrared model that does a stellar job of working in total darkness (when used with an IR Illuminator; which is only total darkness to most normal humans I suppose). Check out this side-by-side video done by Rogue Dynamics (that got a couple of demo models at SHOT):
You can definitely see better detail of the “unlit” areas in the IR Version.
And at their booth that had a good demo set up to demonstrate the functionality in total darkness.
They also have a ton of accessories, including a dog mount that goes on the head (rather than the back or chest), allowing your K9 to expose less when peaking around corners. And for those of on team GoPro, MOHOC makes an adapter that will allow the use of GoPro accessories.
