Conclusion: 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.
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Contour+2 review: the best consumer helmet camera on the market
5 September 2012
Summary: This helmet camera doesn't take any big steps forward with audio or video quality compared to the competition. Then again, with 1080p recording in a package this small, and a line-in for audio from whatever source you want, it could be argued there's not a lot of headway to make there.
