The good folks at Contour bring us a successor to the ContourHD, named the ContourHD 1080p Full HD Helmet Camera. That's right - a full 1920 x 1080p camcorder for recording all your adventures on land, in the air, on the side of a mountain.... pretty much wherever you feel the need to explore. The ContourHD 1080p not only records in 1080p, but also offers up 4 other resolution choices depending on your needs: 1280 x 960p at 30fps, 1280 x 720p at 60fps, 1280 x 720p at 30fps, and standard definition 848 x 480 at 60fps. Record whatever your heart desires with this extremely lightweight and easy to use 5MP camcorder.
All your video is captured to microSD memory cards (2GB card included) up to 16GB for easy flash memory recording and transfer. When using a 16GB card you can record for up to 8 hours! Considering the built-in lithium-ion battery lasts for 4 hours on a single charge, that's pretty awesome. And you'll capture all your adventures with the fixed focus 135° lens that keeps the entire scene in focus without over-distorting things. A built-in microphone rounds out your video by capturing the sounds that go along with every adventure.
Ease of use is another hallmark of this wearable camcorder. Even with gloves on you can start and stop recording with just a touch of the switch. And, because it weighs only 4.3 ounces and is mountable to just about anything, thanks to Contours's patent-pending TRail Mount system, you'll be able to shoot without being distracted or weighed down. In addition, dual lasers, along with the 180° rotating lens ensure that your video lines up each and every time.
Aside from being easy to use, providing excellent video resolution, and flash memory recording, the ContourHD 1080p is water-resistant, along with shock, vibration, and impact resistant. The camera is made from anodized aluminum making it one rugged device that holds its own when you're out doing your thing.
When the day's adventures are over you can share them online with ease thanks to the included Easy Edit software. The software helps you import videos to your Mac or PC, edit the best clips, and share them on social media sites. The software also allows you to select specific camera configurations based on your needs.
