I hate these cameras

Seth L Casebolt, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I hate these cameras. I really liked the bullet design and that's why I chose the contour but now it's a regret and a waste of money. I have a contour GPS and the battery switch peals of the insulation on the battery when I try to eject it. It's basically ruined two batteries. You're left try to rig something up so that you can slide the battery out without causing damage. On my contour+ the thing crashes all the time.

Contour Camera

Robin, Amazon
9 April 2014
  • Summary: I sure like this little camera and I'm still thinking up ways to mount it and places to use it. It is a great spy camera if you want one because of it's small size and being battery operated. And it has great color. The only thing I don't like is having to erase the data card; I can never remember how to do it so I have to take out the manual again.

Contour+ Plus Camera

RC "RC", Amazon
6 November 2013
  • Summary: After reading all the reviews I had to have this camera. Camera arrived dead. I went to Contours site, they are out of business so no support, only firmware software updates. Product returned.

great while it works, customer service unresponsive

Erik Quarnstrom, Amazon
28 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera only to have it break two months after purchasing it. In order to fix/replace the camera, you have to email tech support (only the online store has a phone number to call, and it's always an answering machine). But tech support is very slow to respond to emails - over a week with no response.

Awesome Camera/Recorder Great Live Feed for TV

HVAC Doc "Hot Rod", Amazon
14 July 2013
  • 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...and its hard to believe but it was the cheapest one I found on Amazon. I bought the camera for "live action" viewing with my wife...because she likes to watch.

Extremely poor service support poor quality-Look at a GoPro before buying this camera

Charles Matthew Irving, Amazon
10 April 2013
  • Summary: Sometimes this camera records sound and sometimes does not. It also will show a thumbnail for a data file and when an attempt is made to open the file nothing is there(so your'e effectivly screwed out of your special moment). How can there be a thumbnail but no data file? The most irritating thing is when you call contour you only get a recording and my calls are not being returned. Look at a GoPro for sure before buying a contour cmera.

This is a GIANT leap forward with Contour!

Brandon, Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: This is my third contour and a GIANT leap from the original 1080P-GPS and HD models! This has impressive picture quality but a 32GB memory card is a must, if it was capable of using a larger I would have one for it. The new function of the on/off/record switch is one of the biggest improvements, it couldn't get any easier! The Bluetooth functionality has increased and now includes a remote record button via Bluetooth.

Great POV camera

Tyson, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: I'm using this camera mostly to film my action shooting competition matches. Mounted to my hearing protection, it rocks in showing me where I can change my strategy and pick up more time. It's light and I've been able to shoot 3 shooters through a whole day of competition. I wish this one had the one button on and record, I think the newer + does that.

Love my Contour+

Elias Arismendez "Elias Arismendez", Amazon
18 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this because I wanted to start recording some of my snowboarding runs. I didnt really like the style of the square Go Pro so I went with Contour. Its been a great little camera. Its not a rome but it is rugged and even though I've never used a case it has had its fair share of drops and bumps along with me on the mountain and has never had any problems!

Junky. Power button doesn't work.

Kevin, Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this for video while flying in planes. They are an ambitious company, but this version is not very good. The power button is so bad they have a video on their site entitled "why doesn't my power button work?" Well, I just followed their directions on how to re-assemble this $400 camera for them when in fact it should be a warranty repair, and now the power button is completely non-functional! I can't recommend this product- it just wasn't ready for prime time.
