Summary: Works very well. My only complaint is that turning the video on makes an extremely loud beeping noise, which will give away your position if used in a stealth environment. Also, be aware that the wide angle of view is great for getting the overall picture of what's going on, but terrible for close up details -- you won't be able to see other people in the video unless they are very close up. Cannot be used as a weapon scope camera for this reason.
Great build, good video, poor night quality, low battery life.

Summary: PROS: Good action camera Performs well in day The build of the camera is a feat of engineering. Its just put together great and works real nice for something so small Contour mounts are a+, the mounting system on camera is just as great Rotating lens for sideways mounts Easy to use button CONS: Awful at night. You see lights and that's it. It's just not built for night. Low battery life, will last something below a day. What did you expect from something so small?
Summary: Excellent camera! The picture is great, and we were surprised at how good the audio was, even when it was inside the waterproof case under the water. Overall, great camera, great price, and great video.
Summary: I've really enjoyed using this. I've taken it on my bike and into the ocean and it took great pictures and video. The only thing I don't like is that you have to have a computer to change the settings from picture to video. Not versatile and I usually leave my computer at home when I travel.
Summary: As an owner of an original Contour HD, this is an awesome upgrade. Better picture, better controls, and waterproof out of the box! Keep in mind that the newer contours are slightly different in size and require a different waterproof case than the older cameras, and third party mounts may be different as well.
Contour is a great product but the support for repairs is horrid.

Summary: I had a kid crack the lens on my Contour Roam. I couldn't find repair parts so I purchased this. really wish Contour would get off their collective asses and get some repair parts into the system. then I'd have 2 good working cameras!
THIS IS THE REAL DEAL FOR THE HARDCORE... Right Price and works well

Summary: I had an older model and lost it. I found that this camera is much better than the older models. I wish I had bought the one with Bluetooth, but you get what you pay for. This is great for the price and does a great job. I knew going in that the mic issue is big with these cameras and was prepared to modify the mic system prior to purchasing. The battery holds up through 32MB of video and more which on 720 is great. The color is good and it gives you the riders view.
Summary: Great for the price. Bought for my sons bday. He uses it at the pool, scootering, skateboarding, bike riding and just to play around with. We got the waterproof case too and they are both great. Really is waterproof. My son took past 3.5 feet with out case and it still works perfect. Images are really good both video and photo. The video does have a slight fish bowl look (slightly). Mounts work great and changing set up is easy. Great little camera.
