Contour's Contour ROAM3 Wearable Action Camera offers high-definition video and photo capture in a ruggedized, mount-anywhere design that is waterproof to 30'. A slider switch on top functions both to turn the camera on as well as start recording. The Contour Roam 3 is lockable to prevent accidental starting or stopping recording. The integrated lens can be rotated 270° so that you can mount the camera at horizontally tilted angles and still get level shots. Moreover, a laser is built-in right above the lens to help you pin-point the correct shooting angle. The camera also captures audio via an internal mic.

Tip: Until Contour potentially makes a polarized lens, the lens cover can be modified to a polarized filter. Simply cut out the circumference of the rubber lens cover, cut any standard polarized filter to fit the circumference, and use epoxy to glue the lens to the rubber cap. The polarized filter will help minimize glare in intense direct sunlight or water reflection.
3 things to do with this camera.

-Get a 32GB SD card
-take it on every adventure
I cant say enough good things these cameras. They may not be as good as a current generation GoPro but if you want a product that works and will last through an incredible amount of abuse you should get a Contour. Both of mine have massive dents in the housings and have been baked and frozen multiple times and still they work great. Even the battery on my 5 year old ROAM2 will run the camera for 2 hours !
The only downside is the ROAM 2 and 3 only support up to 32 GB cards. Also FYI the ROAM3 is internally a ROAM2 with new buttons and firmware. You can load the 3's firmware on a 2 and get 60fps.
To make matters worst I have sent two emails to customer service at Contour requesting information on how to go about this evident flaw on the camera I received… or even worst the design itself of the camera. A month has passed since the first one and 2 weeks since the second one and still I don’t receive a response whatsoever.
Thinking about getting an action camera? My suggestion get a GoPro, I’ll be doing so very soon.
