Summary: Camera has nice sharp videos. Compact, and really like that the user can mount the camera at 90 degree increments and rotate the lens so that the videos are in my case anyway upright or vertical. The Software ... Storyteller however is somewhat cumbersome and will not open all the time.
Summary: The contour roam 2 was amazing! I only give it four stars instead of five because we used it on a Tough Mudder course and the sound was muffled after about 4 obstacles(obviously mud was in the mic). It would be an improvement to incase the mic somehow, but other than that it was great! The picture, even in the 720 setting was still amazing! Battery life in this setting was great.
Summary: The camera works great, it's really great that you can use it in water up to 1 m without any special case. But there is a very important thing you should know. COUNTOUR Co. is bankruptcy. What does this mean? Well, first of all I don't know where we can claim for warranty. Second of all, any questions will be answered by... NO ONE.
Summary: I love this camera's quality but the 32 GB SD card will not work in it. This is why I am giving it a 5 star instead of a 4 star. I have tried 3 cards and none work. Should I send the camera back?? I'm really frustrated because I want to use this camera but only the 4GB card that comes with the Contour Roam2 will work. Any suggestions?
Summary: i would have rated this a 5 but i had trouble downloading the manual and the "storybook" editing feature. i finally found a link to download the manual. however the editing software was not available so i can't change anything like resolution,. i am going to call the company and find out why, but in the meantime i cannot give a perfect score.
StoryTeller Software not Available in Contour Site Anymore!
8 October 2013
Summary: Camera itself is great, it's well build and sturdy. The negative is that the "Storyteller Software Application" is not available in the Contour site. This application controls the settings of the video quality to 1080p. I had to look elsewhere to download this software and manage to find one. Click here on my video review for the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Summary: Simple operation. Just an on-off switch which activates the video recording. I have used it by placing it stationary so far. The videos are very clear. I need to wear it to take videos while skiing. That will really show whether it can withstand movement while videoing.
Summary: Pros: easy to use and lower price Cons: 1) The various mounts don't lock the camera (waterproof) case in - so bumpy riding impacts and the camera/waterproof case will slide off the mounts - so you need a good leash and to duct tape the camera in! or the sucker is lost... 2) The leash that goes with, is effective at first but not strong enough and will definitely break... My leash broke and my camera disappeared permanently into the surf.
