BEWARE CONTOUR IS OUT OF BUSINESS!!

April, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • 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.

Battery problems, customer service was unhelpful

Frank Derby, Amazon
23 July 2013
  • Summary: The batter will not stay charged over night. It's a once use then you have to charge it again. I contacted contour and it was literally wearing me down. They would ask me one question at a time and respond once a day. It took 10 days and the product still isn't right.

Grainy video and poor software

C. Cole, Amazon
24 August 2012
  • Summary: There is not much difference between file sizes with the 720p and 1080p settings, but the 720p is not hi-def quality. It's very grainy and the the video clarity is worse than my old 6 year old Cannon still camera that records small videos in 240p files.

No sound, x2

Kiichi, Amazon
26 November 2011
  • Summary: Disappointed, to put it simply. I was looking forward to getting into POV action shooting. Of the various cameras out there (GoPro, Oregon Scientific, Drift), I liked the feel and look of the Contour the most. When the specs came out for the ROAM, I was all over it.

Little to no sound

Amazon
31 October 2011
  • Summary: I discovered that mine records little to no sound at all. It turned out that Roam's firmware had a bug. It seems that they still haven't been able to resolve this issue. Roam was my replacement camera for my GoPro, but I'm back to GoPro now.

Not the correct item delivered and no meaningful support available

Mr. Gary English "Gary English", Amazon
17 September 2013
  • Summary: Item was delivered quickly. As it was a gift it was not opened straight away but thankfully opened before the return time window expired. Item delivered was the watersports pack. This is different to the standard unit which is designed for a helmet.

Contour roam

Dan, Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: I've been really disappointed with this camera ever since I bought it. The first dissapointment was the battery. At full charge I was lucky to get 10mins of recording. The battery eats up power even in standby mode.
