Customer Reviews

GPS is cool but useless.
Mr. T
I described the problem to Contour support and they asked me to return the camera (at my own expense) and they would either repair it or replace the camera.

Great handy little camera for all occasions.

I've used my Contour+2 for over a year now, and while it has a few small flaws, I love it. The slim design and assortment of attachment options make it a breeze to secure to pretty much any surface, and the rotating lens makes it easy to level it when mounted to irregular surfaces (one of the biggest reasons why I chose it over the GoPro). I have used it both as a dash cam while driving (clear enough to pick out license plates of vehicles in front of me), as a helmet cam while skiing (easier than GoPro to turn on/off and level with a Ski glove on), and as a handheld cam while rafting (waterproof case included).

PROS:
Lightweight and sleek, fits just about anywhere in any orientation.
Great video quality, minimal fish-eye effect
GPS option great for plotting trip path and syncing with video in terms of elevation, speed, location etc
Easy to turn on/off even with cumbersome gloves/gear, audible alerts to indicate recording start/stop
Decent battery life, even on max resolution/fps

CONS:
Quicktime movie format can be pretty annoying to work with
GPS embed only works with proprietary software
Still uses mini-usb instead of standard micro-usb
Tends to occasionally freeze, requiring battery removal to reset

Bottom Line:
If you're looking for a compact and handy action camera to take with you on all your outdoor excursions, that can easily be attached anywhere to anything and still shoot straight, then the Contour+2 is the cam for you.

An important positive note. Contour is very much alive with helpful and helpful customer support people!
I got fast helpful responses from them when I contacted them a couple of weeks ago.
Camera was used on several Bike trips on a helmet while riding enduro bike
on dirt roads muddy wet forest paths. I liked the recorded video quality a lot, particularly when recorded on sunny afternoons. videos are very good and sharp -good balance of contrast and color.
for my taste and eye -video color and contrast balance seemed better, than in some You tube review videos .
If You want to use it for spy sting operation action to record secret conversations -then You have to use the external microphone option- say attached to Your chest pocket:)- because
camera has a microphone protection foam inside it- a rather thick piece of rubbery closed cell foam behind the tiny microphone hole. to protect it from dust and water. That foam can be swapped for a better sound transparent material.
I have not tested recorded sound from optional external microphone but it promises to be good because camera records scratching high pitch sounds which come from its body when you sweep your finger over it - indicating that built in microphone itself records well.
this camera is one of the best action cam designs out there at a relatively low cost at this time of writing. Camera body has a high quality feel, look, design and weight. "GPS mapping" of Your adventure or backyard trip works too.

This camera was something I really needed to record my adventures while flying on helicopters. It's works excellent especially with the external mic that I stick in my helmet to record all the audio from our communications. Works great if you need to review a sortie that went well or bad. Great shipping very fast.

I had two problems to start with, one of which was my problem:

1) I could not get the camera to start a new file after the maximum fat file size of 4gb was reached. The camera is suppose to start a new file after about 3.8gb. This is when you use a larger sd card of up to 32gb. The solution was to go to the Contour website and install the latest Firmware version per their directions. Never gave a thought about needing to update to new firmware on a brand new camera. Perhaps this may help some who have the same problem and save hours trying to figure out the problem.

2) The other problem was I used an off-brand micro sd card which I checked with a disk checking program. The program found the card find. I could not get the camera to continue using all the 32gb. The solution was I bought a brand new genuine micro sd card made by Scandisk, which works fine. You got to watch the cards you buy off of Ebay! I learned the hard way. ;)

Now everything is working fine. Great camera for the price. Yes, the sound quality using the camera microphone is not that great, but you can buy a separate microphone that plugs into the camera that will work fine. Just make sure you get the right plug size for the camera.

That said, the Contour +2 Cameras works great for my purposes.

Great camera so far! Almost not even noticeable weight wise on the side of my helmet. The one downside is in order to charge it on the go you need either a computer to charge from or the contour brand charging kit. Battery life is decent however so unless you plan on trips longer than 2-3 hours depending on settings then you should be fine.
