Contour Roam3 review: One of the top entry-level action cams gets even better

 

A little more than a year ago, action-cam maker Contour closed its doors. Though it had a couple of the best cameras around in the Roam2 and Contour+2 , it couldn't keep up with the marketing muscle of GoPro or the onslaught of less-expensive competitors.

The Contour Roam3 is waterproof down to 30 feet (10m) without a housing; it has a rotating lens with laser alignment so your video is straight; it has Contour's Trail mount as well as a standard tripod mount; and the big slider gets you recording...

Though its battery can last up to 3.5 hours, it's not removable and a full charge takes about 3 hours. It has no screen or option for a screen, and without Wi-Fi or Bluetooth you can't wirelessly preview or view video on a mobile device.

All the features that make Contour's action cams excellent are here in its entry-level Roam3. While it's not loaded with extras, it's one of the best you'll find for its price.

Good Action Cam for the Price

 

Able to use the accessories from the Contour ROAM2. Had to replace the old one I had and the quality is a step up. Good to see Contour back. It's good that it can now go a bit deeper than the ROAM2 underwater. Image quality is a tad bit better than the...

Great Action Camera

 

This is a neat little camera to record action shots, if you don't mind the absence of wireless connections and a display screen, there are 2 modes available which have to be programmed in a PC, but given this little hassle, the camera is fairly easy to...
