Contour+2 Review

 

Whether your next great adventure is climbing mountains, riding jet skis, or even skydiving, the Contour+2 captures the fun. Priced at $399.99, the Contour+2 is comparable to the highest-end GoPro HERO3, but offers unique features in a sleeker,...

Sturdy, well-built hardware with virtually limitless options for camera mounting. Great HD picture quality in proper light. Free iPhone app controls camera settings while on the go. Mac app is free, and plots your video’s GPS coordinates on a Google map

Short battery life. Pro QuickTime extensions may cause Mac app to crash when launched. While the hardware is great, the Mac software is just OK

The Contour+2 is a compact solution for capturing great-looking sports footage in HD, but its OS X (and to a lesser degree, iOS) software don’t quite live up to the excellent hardware.

Contour+2: Easier to use, tougher to break

 

The Contour+2 combines the best features of the entire Contour camera line in one simple, powerful flagship model.

The Contour+2 captures crisp, HD video. The new Instant On-Record slider greatly increases simplicity. Bluetooth allows app connectivity, GPS allows location data to be embedded in video, and the waterproof case is now included

Even with the new lower price, the Contour+2 is more expensive than the GoPro HD Hero2

Contour+2

 

Contour's line-topping Contour+ HD sports camera would have been one of our favorites, but we hesitated to recommend it because Contour's own less-expensive cameras, the ContourGPS and the ContourRoam , were cheaper, more rugged, and easier to use.

ContourRoam Hands-Free HD Camcorder

 

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 GPS HD Wearable Camcorder Camera 1400

 

Slotting in between the ContourHD and the Contour+ is the ContourGPS sports camera. This HD sports camera blends the ease of use of the entry-level camera with the most useful features of the top-of-the-line model in Contour's catalog.

The ContourGPS is compact and configurable, yet also extremely easy to pick up and use. Laser sights and a rotating lens help to aim the camera while mounted without the need for a viewfinder. The camera can connect to an Android or iOS device using an...

Using the live-view function with an iPhone requires a $30 Connect View card.

The Contour GPS sports camera is the sweet spot in Contour's sports camera lineup, offering most of the features that most owners will find useful, and at an affordable price.

Contour+

 

Incredibly sturdy. Rotating wide-angle lens. Excellent GPS function

Too expensive. Less-than-stellar video quality. Requires an iPhone or iPod Touch to change video settings. Remote viewfinder isn't very useful

It has a cool GPS feature, but the Contour+'s $500 price is too high for a helmet camera with only decent video quality. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better model among the sparse selection of these specialized cameras, though.
