    Dead Camera

    Comments about ContourROAM2 Action Camera (Blue):

    I purchased the Contour ROAM2, which is a great camera for the price a friend of mine has 2 which I have had some time with. When I got the camera (blue) it was inoperable. However I was able to ship it to the Manufacturer and get a brand new camera.

      Comments about ContourROAM2 Action Camcorder (Red):

      For the price, this cam can't be beat. I have it mounted to my softball pitcher's helmet and the quality is very good. I have tried others and they work well too, but this on is waterproof and I don't need a bulky case to house it.
      I do wish it had an anti-shake feature, but again, for this price, it do what it says it do.

        Great Camera

        By Los7943

        from Kissimmee

        Comments about ContourROAM2 Action Camera (Black):

        On my first day of use I took a ride on my motorcycle and when I came home I looked at the video and I was truly impressed with the quality.
        Easy to use and great size and shape. Be sure to purchase a memory chip with more memory since the 4gb might not be enough.

            Limited functions, however this is one of the things that makes it easy to use. Great picture given the size of the camera. Camera does not have a zoom function and is very wide angle. All things considered it is a good camera for the money depending on the intended uses...

            Comments about ContourROAM2 Action Camcorder (Red):

            The ROAM2 comes in an attractive pack and includes: 1 profile mount; 1 rotating flat surface mount; lanyard tether; USB cable; lens cap; 4GB MicroSD card; storage pouch and lens cloth.It is a very sleek, well designed action camera. It does not stick out like a sore thumb (ala GoPro). Simple operation with a BIG record slider switch on top, you will never miss the moment no matter where you mount it. The picture quality is excellent both outdoors and indoors. I use it primarily for recording my motorcycle rides but it has inspired me to experiment more since it is so easy to use! The built-in laser and the rotating lens help you align and frame your shots. It also has a standard tripod socket so you don't need any extra mounts for that. I purchased an extra set of mounts but won't be needing them since it came with two mounts that as of now are enough for me. You need to download the Storyteller software from contour in order to configure the camera. Now this is the only part I don't like and hence the 4 stars instead of 5. Yes, it's me being picky. Every time you need to change some setting on the camera, you need to connect it to your computer, choose the settings, disconnect the camera, record, connect it again and decide if those settings are what you want. It gets irritating but then after spending time with the camera, I realized that it is not something I would do every now and then once I figured out what I like. Besides, they have much better configurability on the higher priced Contour2 and so I can't really complain. My only other gripe with the camera is that there is no external mic port and I need it a lot since I use this on a motorcycle and the wind ruins all the audio. Again, available on the higher priced Contour2. Overall, for the price, this is a brilliant product and I've this funny feeling I am going to be buying one more!
