Excerpt: I have been very disappointed with this purchase and camera. Caveat, this is the first action cam I have ever used or purchased. First the malfunction, which I hope B&H will accept my desire to return it. The battery seems to have partially exploded, which LiIon are known to do.
Cons: Complicated To Operate, Poor In Low Light, Poor Sound
Expensive, Unreliable, GPS is slow, Hard to mount, Now a Paperweight.

Summary: I paid a small fortune for this camera because it had a GPS on it. I wanted to use it to track the speed of my motorcycle on the race track. That never quite worked out. The GPS inside the camera is entirely too slow to update.
Summary: I purchased this product in June 2013. It worked great without a problem then last month the battery would not take a charge. I assumed this was that the battery had failed so I purchased an additional battery, same issue. I sent Contour an email requesting support and after two weeks no response.
Summary: Warning, Contour went out of business in August. Software needed to update the camera, set the time and recording options in not available anymore since their website has pulled all downloads.
Summary: This is actually the third defective Contour camera I or someone I have known purchased (at my recommendation). The early ones were pretty solid, but I've been slow to learn because I liked them so much.
