Not good for motorsports or as a dash cam in your car, but probably a decent outdoor action camera...

  • Summary: My main problem with this is that it can't be charged while turned on. I was trying to use it as a dash-can in my car but it has absolutely none of the features needed for a dash cam. No LCD screen, it can't be charged while in use, and it doesn't have any overwrite "loop filming" feature.

  • Summary: Many times I missed the shot because the camera would error out. I don't recommend. Battery does not really give any warning before it dies either.

Somewhat misleading. Do your research before buying.

  • Summary: Pros: - WaterRESISTANT - Good quality in day time Cons: - No instructions are included, except for a basic, 4 picture pamphlet on how to record. - Only waterproof up to 1 METER. You have to get online, figure out that there IS a PDF manual, and read it to figure this out.

  • Summary: My title pretty much summarises my experience. I bought this for my wife as we were travelling to the Galapagos islands and she needed something to take with her on her dives. After the first dive, the mic stopped working and by the end of the trip, the front element was scratched despite the fact...

Customer Support???

  • Summary: I was compelled to return the ROAM2 without even using it; as the quality/lack of customer support put me off. I had an issue with setting up an account and with updating the firmware for the camera and it's associated software.

Contour Roam 2

TigerB, Amazon

  • Summary: Got the camera ok but very disappointed to find out that the Contour Storyteller software could not be downloaded from the Contour website. Later found out that Contour have gone out of business. Why sell a camera for which the software is not available?
