So all the reviews I've read say this lets your phone act as a viewfinder. But can it also allow you to playback movies you've already recorded?
You can use the phone as a view finder and adjust all the camera settings on the fly with the phone, but you can not use it as a playback device. Keep in mind the Contour is a camera for capturing and not a true playback device to begin with. Even when connected to your PC/Mac, the video is a bit jumpy when playing back directly off the contour. It is great if you take the time to put it on your computer for playback. So because of this, there is no playback option built into connectview.
