I would highly recommend to my friends. Excellent price and a great product
1 October 2013
Summary: Wanted to wait to review it after I had a few mud runs under my belt and have to say I couldn't be happier. Excellent picture quality during the day as well as sound. Best purchase for me hands down. I haven't used it at night or low light however because I bought it to use for daytime activities.
Summary: So, I have my Contour camera in for repair after 2 months of use....I never got a response back...turns out...the company went out of busness....read about it for yourself.....Early August, they closed their doors (Seattle, WA based compnay). I probably will never see my 400 dollar camera again.
Summary: I have compared footage side by side with the GoPro hero and find them very equal. The Contour however is so much easier to use! I get 10 times the footage with this camera compared to my GoPro!
Summary: Camera just died after about only one week of use. Initially support was very responsive, but after the RMA was opened I shipped my camera to them I can't any a single answer from them, absolutely nothing. Last answer I got was more than month ago, and they already received the camera 20 days ago. edit: After writing this review I learned that contour went out of business, lucky for me, right?
Summary: I just returned from a 2,500 mile motorcycle trip on which I used the ContourROAM daily, and am generally pleased with the camera, but it has several issues that you should be aware of. 1) I was only able to record approximately 7 hours of 720p video using the 32GB SD card that came with the kit. This is far short of the advertised 12 hours for 720p and even short of the advertised 8 hours for 1080p.
Summary: The contour roam camera was a good camera to start out with, but after only a couple uses the battery completely died and no it is useless. I cannot get it replaced due to Contour shutting down. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!
Summary: Folks, be careful! Contour just went belly-up on Friday 8-7-13 and closed their offices in Seattle. I had an order in for this camera but cancelled before it shipped, thankfully. It's a shame but without being sure about post sale support, I'm going to wait to see how this shakes out before I reorder.
Summary: I purchased this camera on June 10th 2013 and it was defective out of the brand new box. I contacted this seller and got no response so I contacted Contour. They replied same day and said they would replace it. I had to pay the shipping back to Contour but I had no other choice. As soon as I shipped it off, I never heard another word from Contour. After repeated attempts at contacting Contour through their Web Site, I decided to try their Facebook page.
Summary: I was debating between the contour and the gopro. i had planned on purchasing the gopro until reading reviews and many concerns about the quality control. i have used older versions of the gopro and contour in the past and have been happy with both. my general feeling is the the gopro is smaller and nice for mounting on things like bike handle bars, kayak hulls, ect. The countour is larger but a slimmer profile which mounts nicely on the side of helmets.
