Contour Returns to POV Camera Market

Posted by JenThorpe at 2:11 AM on April 22, 2014

Contour logoContour is based in the heart of Utah’s Wasatch Mountains. Contour is now under new ownership. They have completed a financial overhaul, reorganized their plans for new product innovation, and built a framework for vastly improved distribution. This puts Contour, pioneers of the action sports camera industry, back in position to be a key contender in the Point of View (POV) camera market.

Contour currently offers two POV cameras and full range of accessories. The Contour+2 features crisp HD video, GPS data that helps to bring your adventures to life, and a wireless mobile app that turns your smartphone into a remote control.

The Contour+2 has an Instant-On Record switch that you slide into locking position when you are ready to start filming. You can shoot in four different HD modes including 1080p. It is also possible to use the Contour+2 to create super slow motion video because it can shoot 120 frame per second in 480p.

The ContourROAM2 is incredibly easy to use. It comes in four colors and is waterproof without a case. Slide the Power On & Record Switch when you are ready to start filming and it will start recording video. It offers crystal clear HD video. Contour bumped up the frames per second on the ContourROAM2 to 60 when shooting at 720p. This provides you with very smooth video.

The ContourROAM2 can shoot up to 3.5 hours of footage. The Instant On-Record switch does not have a standby mode that can waste power while it waits to start filming. The battery of the ContourROAM2 is only in use while you are recording video.
