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: 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: 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.
Summary: Overall, this video camera is an exceptional deal for the price. I paid $110 for this shipped right to my door. That included did not include the micro SD card, but no camera comes with one of those. If you're looking for a nice 1080P action video camera without a bunch of bells and whistles, this one is for you. This is last year's ROAM model. You have to plug it into a computer to make any adjustments (i.e. video quality, microphone sensitivity, etc.).
Summary: Performs function as intended batteries lasted a fraction longer than advertised. Very happy with purchase. While not on the same quality as a go pro i highly reccommend for those who want to tape their rides for safety reasons. Highly reliable and have had not had any issues with software glitches or lost data.
Summary: My husband is an avid mountain biker who wanted to document his rides...and our dog running with him! The quality of the video is amazing, especially when you see how small this device is. His only issue with it is it can get snagged on brush while on top of his helmet. Not the product's fault though. He has already recommended this to his friends!
I love this camera.....been great for my use and FUN!

Summary: Super easy to use, purchase was a "no-brainer" for me vs a Go-Pro option, as this was 1/3 the price. Have used this for kayak fishing mounted on Scotty mounts. Have taken excellent underwater video of kayak operation using a trolling motor, of underwater fish catch/release, and have also taken video of live music performance from a boom mono-pod to get excellent video overhead perspective of a really excellent drummer, bass, and guitar player.
