Contour ROAM video camera review

 

When we looked at the Contour+ video camera we were impressed with its video quality and size, but of more value was its miniature construction — it easily fit in a pocket, or could be thrown in a backpack. What made it great was the extra Bluetooth...

Contour's cheapest camera is also its most versatile -- it's waterproof to a depth of one metre. This should make it great for all-weather sports (think surfing, skiing, whitewater rafting) where other Contour models or competing sports cameras require...

Contour ROAM video camera

 

This cheap waterproof video camera is a great tool for all-weather fun

Low price ; Good image quality ; Waterproof to 1 metre

Alignment is a guessing game ; Changing exposure settings requires a computer

ContourRoam Hands-Free HD Camcorder review

 

Contour's HD camcorders have been among our favorite action cameras since the original ContourHD was launched three years ago. However, the old ContourHD (while still a good camera) is getting a bit long in the tooth. So, we're pleased to hear that...

The ContourRoam manages to make Contour's already easy-to-use control scheme even easier by combining the power and record buttons. The ultrawide-angle lens makes framing a point-and-shoot affair. HD video quality is good.

The omission of dual recording modes and Bluetooth connectivity makes it impossible to change video or photo modes on the fly. A microSD card is not included in the purchase price.

The ContourRoam finally matches the rugged construction and ultrawide field of view of the competition, while still excelling as a sports camera with its ease of use and low price.

Contour Roam Review

 

You know what they say — the best camera is the one you have with you. Having a camera doesn't always mean you're able to capture spontaneous moments with ease, though. I cannot count the number of...

Lightweight, easy to use ; Waterproof, rugged design ; Multiple recording modes

No onboard storage ; Software is lacking ; Video quality could slightly be improved

Now, please excuse me while I mount this thing to a helmet and go skydiving

ContourROAM Hands-Free Camera Review

 

Contour has carved something of a niche for itself over the past few years, catering to the extreme sports and pro-video crowds who demand durability as well as image quality from their rugged cameras. Latest to the plate is the ContourROAM , billed as...

At $199 the ContourROAM isn’t the cheapest rugged camera around, but you’re getting more for your money than just a tough, waterproof housing. The convenience factor of the single control makes it just as useful as a second eye when you’re manually...

Contour Roam

 

The Contour Roam will suit action adventurers who just want to point and shoot. Adjusting settings on the fly is next to impossible, so if tweaking's your deal, look elsewhere.

Easy to start recording ; Rugged and waterproof design

All settings have to be tweaked via computer, no on-board switches ; Laser is rather weak and hard to see in bright situations

The Contour Roam will suit action adventurers who just want to point and shoot. Adjusting settings on the fly is next to impossible, so if tweaking's your deal, look elsewhere. The Roam is available for AU$299.

ContourRoam

 

Contour takes its latest compact action video camera out for a Roam.

The Roam can also film in full 1080p HD, although it does miss out on the GPS like the ContourGPS and Contour+. It also has a 170-degree rotating lens. Mounting the camera is done via the tripod thread or optional mounts that can be purchased as...
