Summary: I wanted an action camera, but did not want to drop $300.00 to $400.00 on a unit. Roam, even though for the time-being defunct,got stellar reviews from those that had bought one. I found this unit for a good entry-level price. While not the most technically advanced it is a robust camera that basically lets one record action hand-free. The biggest drawback is that the battery is not removable to charge and a spare battery is a non-starter.
Summary: I was looking for an action camera 1080p. I read a lot of forums & i saw all the videos on youtube! 2 winners: 1) contour roam 2, 2) go pro. I make a better research for those two. The money was not the problem between them. I said this you sound buy it only one time in your life! I choose the contour for 2 reasons. The sound quality and the size was better than go pro. I loved this camera! My sport is ride on mountain with my motorcross (crf 450).
