Summary: I haven't had any issues with this. It's typically mounted to my bicycle helmet and it records very well. I much prefer this style over the GoPro style. I also took it to the Bahamas and had the waterproof case and it performed amazingly well.
Summary: I'm having a difficult time deciding whether to give this 3 or 4 stars, because my feelings are truly mixed. Why the mixed feelings? Well, the biggest issue I've experienced so far came from having a memory card that was more than half full. Rather than recording continuous files as usual, my ROAM2 recorded random amounts of time before shutting off. One recording cut out after 30 seconds, the next after 5 minutes, despite having plenty of room on the card.
Summary: I was looking for a great action video camera to record my dirt bike and street rides but I didn't want to mount a "big box" camera to my helmet. The Contour is sleek and just the right size to mount on the side of my helmet to capture all of the action of my rides without the potential of knocking the camera off while riding through the brush and trees. It's extremely easy to operate and the lens is just right to capture all of the action!
Solid Build Quality, Very Functional, Poor Video Performance.

Summary: The build quality, durabilty and overall functionality are great. It's very simple and easy to use. For a motorcycle helmet (what I'm using it for) as well as other various action sports like biking / kayaking / etc this really is pretty great because the ease of use and versatility is all there. That being said, the quality of HD video you get is fair at best. Even if 1080p High Quality the video is very muddy and compressed.
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.
