- Full HD 1080p (1920 x1080 @ 30 fps) to capture those awesome moments in the highest resolution available.
- Tall HD 960p (1280 x 960 @ 30fps) for those sports like surfing that are better suited to a taller image.
- Action HD 720p (1280 x 720 @ 60 fps) when frame rate is more important than resolution. The perfect setting to capture the fastest action. It reduces blur and rolling shutter effect.
- Contour 720p (1280 x 720 @30 fps). When space on your card is at a premium and you need to record that last epic adventure. This setting takes it easy on your memory.

I fixed the problem by removing the pin and putting a rubber-band between the pin and the half-round seat in the camera-mount, then cutting the rubber band after the pin was mostly slid into the helmet-mount. Then I used a thin-bladed screw driver to push the pin completely into the helmet-mount. This is something of a temporary solution, as the rubber will eventually degrade and loosen. But for now, I have an interference fit between the pin and the plastic parts.
The pin which holds the slider to the base of the mount broke off right after I landed
a jump off a 4 feet ramp while snowboarding. The plastic saddle is too weak/thin to hold
the camera securely. The side of the camera touches and exerts some pressure against
the base of the mount which causes the pin to pop out from its saddle.
Don't buys this! Vholdr makes good cameras but this accessory is absolutely disappointing.
Look elsewhere or wait until they correct and improve this design.
1. you have to have the straps cross several vents in order for the strap clips to be flat and be able to tighten the straps effectively
2. you have to really tighten the straps until you can't wiggle the platform. That should be obvious, but remember it will get jostled a lot more on your bike than when you're holding it.
I will load a pick of how mine is setup, but basically the flat mount is on the top of my helmet, and the straps go down the sides for about 2"-3" on each side. That was the only way it really kept stable. It didn't work so well trying to put the camera on the side of the helmet. Doing it that way meant one of the clips that hold the straps in place would be in a weird position and difficult to tighten properly.
Once i had it set up like that, I've had no problems with it, and the pictures are great. I may still end up buying the handlebar mount anyway though, since you move your head around a lot more than you realize, and you really can't watch the videos without getting motion sickness. But that is no fault of the product, just whether you mount it on the bike or on your head.
Two thumbs down for a badly designed product.

used for a full face with vents for the straps on the visor, works great so far.Published 15 months ago by munit
The straps work loose on a bouncy ride, but that can't be helped with a buckle-on mount. It does the job.Published on August 9, 2013 by Cafiend
It went on the camera (Contour +2) easy enough but it simply would not come off, it finally broke off at the rails after many attempts to remove it. Really poor design.Published on May 2, 2013 by NinerMTB
The base needs to be bigger to better fit helmets since most have a thin center channel that this mounts to. Read morePublished on April 22, 2013 by Scott Pelton

I use this one on my mountain bike helmet. The straps are nice and long so it easy to find a couple of vents to use. Read morePublished on January 8, 2013 by Matthew J Carling
But it doesn't provide instructions on how to remove the Contour Roam off the mount. Otherwise, I use it to attach my Contour Roam to my bicycle helment.Published on December 25, 2012 by M. Chung
