For all adrenaline junkies seeking to capture their stunts with minimum filming effort while still retaining high video quality, the ContourROAM2 is a must-have. Easy to operate, waterproof, lightweight, neatly designed and all-round practical, your ContourROAM2 will turn your tricks into masterpiece videos.
The Instant On-Record switch does away with unnecessary hustle you’ll have to go through with most regular POV cameras. Simply mount the camera on your equipment, slide the switch to its locking position and you’re good to go. The two adhesive mounts, the built-in laser level and the 270° rotating lens will allow you to shoot your videos from a variety of angles while still retaining a level frame, without much distortion.
The improved frame rate of 60 fps at 720p coupled with automatic exposure, contrast and white balance settings promise a smooth HD video with impressive clarity for a POV camera. In continuous shooting, you can also make use of the photo mode though changes in the settings are made only with the help of Contour’s desktop software once the camera is plugged into your computer by a Mini-USB cable included in the package.
The ROAM2 is waterproof down to 3.3 feet, so you can also make underwater clips with decent video quality without an extra case. The camera is compact and lightweight, measuring 2.4 inches high by 1.3 inches wide by 3.9 inches long, and weighing as few as about 5 ounces. The battery offers up to 3.5 hours of recording and can be recharged by hooking to your computer. The producer also supplied a 4GB MicroSD card with an SD card adapter, which allows for about 30 minutes of filming at the highest resolution.
The camera is available in multiple colors, so you can easily match it to your gear. With its smooth video quality and solid performance in both dry and wet weather, the ContourROAM2 will definitely prove a rewarding purchase for those looking to film their tricks, amateurs and professionals alike.
