Contour's ContourROAM3 Action Camera, in black, offers high-definition video and photo capture in a ruggedized, mount-anywhere design that is waterproof to 30'. A slider switch on top functions both to turn the camera on as well as start recording - plus, it is lockable to prevent accidental starting or stopping recording. The integrated lens can be rotated 270° so that you can mount the camera at horizontally tilted angles and still get level shots. Moreover, a laser is built-in right above the lens to help you pin-point the correct shooting angle. The camera also captures audio via an internal mic. All capture and output settings are selectable in a free-download management software for Mac and Windows available on Contour's website.

The integrated lens features a 170° ultra-wide angle that will provide you with an expansive view. Video can be captured in 1080p, 960p, or 720p HD resolutions, as well as WVGA (848 x 480) widescreen SD. There is also a still photo setting, with the ability to capture at single shot or in intervals of 1, 3, 5, 10, 30, or 60 seconds for time-lapse recording. All data is recorded to microSD cards up to 32GB in capacity. To get you started, an 8GB card is included.

ContourROAM3 runs on a built-in lithium-ion battery estimated to lasts around 3 hours that recharges via USB (USB cable included). Two types of adhesive mounts are included. A flat "Profile" mount that works with most non-porous surfaces, and a curved mount ideal for non-vented helmets. It can also be used with any of the accessory mounts Contour offers - with options for vented helmets, surfboards, handlebars and roll cages, and more (available separately). Additionally, a 1/4"-20 socket is provided on the bottom for mounting the camera on a tripod, camera pole, monopod, clamp, or a nearly infinite range of other third-party mounting options.

270-Degree Rotating Lens
The lens can rotate independently of the camera up to a total of 270-degrees to allow a level shot even when mounting on an angled
Laser Beam for Assistance Leveling
A laser above the lens can project a horizontal beam to help you level the shot. The lens rotates a total of 270-degrees helping you achieve the optimal angle even if the camera can't be moved
1-2 Switch
The 1-2 Switch on the back of the camera allows you to preset the ROAM3 with two different configurations that can be quickly changed in the field. The settings for each switch position can be configured using Contour Storyteller software
Instant Photo Mode
When this mode is enabled you can quickly take photos simply by pressing the Status button. After 60 seconds with no photos taken, the camera will automatically power down
Contour Storyteller Software
This software - available as a free download from the Contour website - allows you to configure camera settings and tap into advanced camera features
Status LED Indicators and Audible Alerts
Two LED indicators show green, yellow, or red reflecting the battery and memory card status respectively. In addition, audible alerts can be enabled to keep you apprised of what's happening if the camera isn't visible
Record Slider Lock
Recording is started or stopped via a slider on top of the camera. A switch on top of the slider allows it to be locked in position - thus preventing accidental recording, or keeping it locked in record mode
