Summary: I liked this camcorder. It recorded HD in a circular lends and was waterproof. Sometime after awhile the mic became fuzzy. Also it is inconvenient that you cannot see what you are recording. I think nowadays the goPro is better but this is a nice start. Wasnt't that great though.
Summary: After a minor fender bender turned into a big insurance and court headache, I decided to arm myself with some proof in case it ever happened again. This little camera has met all my expectations, and for much lower price than some of the others I had considered.
Works Great, Just No Customer Support from Contour.

Summary: I got this to start recording personal events/activities such as watersports, snowboarding, biking, airsoft, ect. Works great so far as expected for the price. The only reason it is 4 stars and not 5 is I have yet to be able to download the storyteller app to adjust settings through that, but that...
Summary: Pros: Decent Quality for what it is, laser level, rotating lens, 1/4 inch mount, it's waterproof without a case, easy use on/off switch. Cons: internal battery is not replaceable, so if you're out with it and it dies, that's it. Battery life at 720 was about 75 minutes for me.
Summary: This is a great little camera. The aluminum casing is durable and feels very strong. It’s also quite light and perfectly comfortable to have on my head. I have not owned it for very long, but my first impressions of this camera are very good and I will update this review should any new experiences...
Summary: I used to skip the photo part of fly fishing because I hate fiddling around with a camera as I manage the fish. With the ContourROAM, I just click it on and go fish. Sometimes I forget it's even there! At this point I've made many videos that capture the fun on a chip.
Summary: I bought this product to record airsoft footage and it does a very good job at that. It has some fisheye, as my editor said, but nothing some editing cant fix. It have 1080p hd which is very nice and it is very durable and simple to use. Great product at a good price.
CONTOUR GONE - Price now 2x more, and no support..

Summary: I have 4 of these, and each was a little over $100, which was a bargain even for an older camera (2011). For simple point-and-shoot they're nice. Picture quality is OK if a bit pixelated sometimes and lighting response seems unpredictable. HOWEVER..
Summary: I have used this camera skiing out west coast. I did NOT put the waterproof case on it and the camera worked great! I have also used this camera just on regular vacations as I find it easy to hold but be careful as the mic is on the front so don't put your finger over it.
Summary: I use this mostly to chronicle bike rides, but it could be used for general video shooting. The lens adjusts the camera angle around 180 deg. so the mounting protrusion off the cylinder can be to the left, right or down.
