4.0 out of 5 stars Great versatile little action cam that takes a beating, August 11, 2014
By 
This review is from: Contour+2 Video Camera (Electronics)
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.
