Product Description

Product Description

The ContourROAM2 brings brilliant updates to our most loved camera, while retaining the features that made it a best seller.

From the Manufacturer


ContourRoam2 Camera

Live life in color. The ContourROAM2 brings brilliant updates to our most loved camera, while retaining the features that made it a best seller. Still the simplest camera to use on the market, the locking Instant On-Record switch makes it easy to get the perfect shot. While black is always in style, we've spiced it up by offering the ContourROAM2 in two additional colors: red and blue. We've also upped the frame rate to 60fps at 720p, and fine-tuned the picture giving the video quality incredible clarity.



ContourRoam2 Product Features:


LOCKING INSTANT-ON RECORD SWITCH

No power button, no problem. Simply slide the Instant On-Record switch into its locking position to ensure you shoot exactly when you're ready.




VIBRANT COLOR OPTIONS

We understand that style matters and color can make or break a look. Match your kit, or bring in a little contrast by adding a ContourROAM2 in one of three colors: red, blue or traditional black.




60 FRAMES PER SECOND

As requested by our customers, we've bumped up the frames per second to 60 when shooting at 720p, meaning you can now get that smooth video quality you've come to expect from Contour cameras.




WATERPROOF WITHOUT A CASE

Good things come in small packages. The ContourROAM2 sheds bulk by working underwater without an extra case. Minimalism is a good thing.




LOW PROFILE DESIGN

Contour cameras have won numerous awards for their stylish, yet functional, low-profile design. The ContourROAM2 is exceptionally designed and lightweight. With the ContourROAM2, less really is more.




VERSATILITY

Whether snorkeling, snowboarding, or tearing up single track, the ContourROAM2 is ready for any adventure. It's compatible with every Contour mount giving you unlimited angles. The 270° rotating lens means no matter where the camera is mounted, you'll always get the perfect, level shot.




LASER ALIGNMENT

Get the correct angle any time with the built-in laser level.




LONG BATTERY LIFE

Shoot up to 3.5 hours of footage. The Instant On-Record switch means there is no standby mode. The battery is only in use when shooting, giving you more bang per charge.




MICRO SD CARD INCLUDED

We've added a 4GB MicroSD card so your camera is ready to use right out of the box.

This is my 6th Contour camera, and I really liked the Roam 1 for windsurfing that I took a chance again knowing that the company was undergoing restructuring. A few weeks pass by and Contour announces that they will be back soon! My big worry is that when the battery dies, so does the camera since it is not replaceable. But hopefully, the footage I get for the next few years will be worth it.

I bought a ROAM2 a while ago, a black one, for my wife and I to wear when we are riding bikes together. But after she got in an accident (hit by a car) while riding separately from me and I had the camera (thankfully the driver stayed, but I realize this is the exception not the rule these days) I decided owning a second one for her to wear full time was inexpensive insurance. At least if one of us is hit while we are riding separately we will be sure to have info on the driver so we can pursue it.

Thinking about buying a third to use as a dash cam.

Since I've reviewed the first camera in more detail I'll just keep the rest brief and say that these are awesome cameras, with good video quality, great build quality, very easy to use, durable and water proof in rain showers and such. Great stuff.

Purchased for a 10 y/o skiing fanatic. He's taken a while to learn all of the user options and especially the various buttons while the camera while attached to his skiing helmet. Took a week or two, but he's away now and the short videos we receive are great

Great product, the vision playback is more than I expected. I plan days just to shoot videos with this. Great for small projects. Wonderful if you need to hook it up to a tripod or helmet even a pole!

I have had mine for almost a year now and it has performed as expected except the screw mount on the body of the camera. I contacted Contour about the problem that it was coming apart inside the screw thread itself. They instructed me to send it back and I expected a repaired unit back. They sent me a brand new camera with a Contour 3100 Universal Mount Adaptor at no charge. I did not expect that at all. No complaints here.

Very good camera, I have one contour HD, 1 Contour GPS and this ContourRoam2 the image quality is very similar the only downside is that this only has one recording position and is not like the others that I can have two options recording.

As an owner of an original Contour HD, this is an awesome upgrade. Better picture, better controls, and waterproof out of the box! Keep in mind that the newer contours are slightly different in size and require a different waterproof case than the older cameras, and third party mounts may be different as well.

I'm having a difficult time deciding whether to give this 3 or 4 stars, because my feelings are truly mixed.

Why the mixed feelings? Well, the biggest issue I've experienced so far came from having a memory card that was more than half full. Rather than recording continuous files as usual, my ROAM2 recorded random amounts of time before shutting off. One recording cut out after 30 seconds, the next after 5 minutes, despite having plenty of room on the card. However, after formatting the card, it was back to normal. This was a one time occurrence, so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and assume the memory card was at fault. We'll see.

If you're buying this camera, be aware of its known shortcomings:

1) Worthless (and I mean completely unusable) low light quality. Contour even admits this is not a camera designed for the night.

2) Terrible onboard microphone, especially if you use it in windy conditions. I use this as a helmet cam on a motorcycle, and the audio is unusable over 30 mph, even after taping over it. I tried taping a layer of foam over it as well, but it didn't help much. This is my biggest complaint.

3) Internal battery only. Not a big deal for me. And the battery is amazing; it lasts forever.

4) No external mic jack. I thought I would be okay with this, but the terrible onboard mic makes another microphone necessary. The lack of decent audio is why I give this camera 3 stars.

5) No way to change settings without a PC. No biggie.

Aside from the awful audio situation, the ROAM2 has performed just as advertised. If you want a nice action camera that can take decent video at 720p 60 fps, or 1080p 30fps, look no further. If you need to plug in a mic, look elsewhere.
