Summary: Overall I would have given 5 starts except that the mini HDMI port would not accept most cables. Its worked with the one that it came with (only 2' long) but I had to buy 4 before I found a 15' cable that would plug into the camera..
Summary: Bought the camera as an upgrade to a free Contour "HD" This has the GPS, the 1080P recording, action hd 720p+60fps mode an external mic jack and the rotating camera barrel. I ride a motorcycle everyday - roughly 30 Miles each way on the freeway in Los Angeles, home of distracted drivers.
Summary: Summary: I love this camera, and I totally love Contour and the little online community that it's created. That said, the camera isn't as user friendly as it could be, and I'm not sure that the camera is a great value at $500.
Summary: I was excited when my Contour+ arrived. It was packaged very well and out-of-the-box it looks sleek and stylish. No problem pairing the camera to the Bluetooth on my Android phone. Using a smartphone as a viewfinder, what a fantastic idea!
Overpriced product due to obvious flaws that they didn't care to correct!!

Summary: I have researched POV cameras, and this seemed to be the best out there. Yet, I'll describe both pros and cons so that buyers beware. Pros: - Great form factor with several mounting options, unlike the other POV cameras out there.
Summary: This review is for the Contour+ version of the camera (Amazon seems to be lumping the reviews for all the different versions into one). Pros: This camera takes great videos. I've been using it for mountain biking and I really like the 170deg field of view that you get with the 'Action HD' setting.
Summary: I was really looking forward to receiving this camera. I paid $500.00 then when it arrive from Amazon.com after waiting over two weeks, it has NO users manual and the website has no manual at all as well. They say its simple to use but its NOT.
Summary: I honestly wanted to like this product. I really did. From the moment I read about the Contour+, I just knew it would be the solution to my video recording needs. Sadly, the Contour+ disappointed me from the moment I opened the box.
Summary: I bought this for skydiving Pros -great picture quality. Significantly better than the gopro hd. -switch is really easy to use and positive - it's easy to flip just before you jump out of the plane -great size Cons -camera crashes.
