Description

It's easy as 1 ...

Using the Contour Roam Camera is as easy as operating a light switch. You just slide the record switch and splaDOW! You're recording high definition video with audio from the Roam's built-in microphone. The resolution adjustment lets you choose between 720p,960p, 1080p, or 5 megapixel stills, depending on what the moment calls for.

R.I.P. Contour

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great action cam for the price. Records excellent quality video and couldn't be easier to use. Slide the switch and go. Its too bad contour isn't around anymore; somebody should buy them.

I highly recommend the Contour Roam, (if you can get your hands on one).

Great quality for the price

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Contour Roam takes great quality video, and is ridiculously easy to operate. It lacks the features of the newer models like bluetooth connectivity and higher frame rates, but the $100 or more price difference more than makes up for the slight inconvenience of not being able to change settings on the fly.

I suspect this model will be discontinued in favor of the newer models. That's a shame, because it's the best entry-level action camera on the market.

I too would like to be contacted. We are interested in purchasing a couple of them. I also want to say that our current Contour is amazing. We absolutely love it!!

Nice but I like GoPro better

I have 2 GoPro HERO2 camera's that I LOVE, but I love the low profile of the Contour camera's. I also love the 1 switch for on and off and the option to mount on the goggles because I don't wear a helmet. I decided to give it a try. It does bounce a little bit on the goggle strap but it's not too bad. You can't backflip with it or it pulls your goggles up over your eyes. The only time I use the ROAM is when I'm snowboarding.

Ain't just for your Helmet, Yo!~

I'm a video producer, and these are an important part of my kit, I use them for Interviews and concerts and a lot of things OTHER than the Sports uses that they are best known for.
The hugely wide lens provides a cool alternative view of the world.
Outdoors and in highly lit areas, these are especially kick-ass.
It's got a more streamlined shape than the goPro, take a better picture, and it's ridiculously easy to operate.
what's not to like?

Great Product!

I have had nothing but great experiences with this Camera. I am very passionate about adventure media and ski films and It is great to have a camera that is easy to use, goes everywhere and takes great videos. I love the low profile helmet mount. It is simple and positions the camera in a safe place while skiing trees and ducking branches. This is my favorite camera to date and I cant wait to see what I can do with it this season

Does this have the option for blue tooth?...

Does this have the option for blue tooth? I know some can sync with your Iphone to view the images, but it says to turn on the blue tooth on the camera.

Top of the Line

I was torn between the GoPro and Contour Roam. I have used my Contour for skiing and Rock climbing. the helmet mounts are perfect. The video quality is incredible and is stunning every time. If you want a low profile, sleek, and amazing helmet cam, the contour is for you!

Contour HD

The camera I got was junk. No matter what I did no computer (PC or Mac) would recognize the camera. The only thing that would work was to put the memory card into a card reader. Tech support was no help. If you look at the posts on the contour site a lot of people had the same problems with no solution.

Do yourself a favor and buy some other brand.

Archieking,

Is this for ContourROAM or ContourHD?

The camera will recognize in the computer as a standard USB device. I'm not sure what memory card you are using, but if you reformat the memory card it should work with no problem. Thanks.

Responded on

As of January 24th 2012 the Goggle mount comes as a Gift with Purchase (GWP) when you buy the Roam or the Contour+ camera! I don't know how long this will last! :)
