Contour+2 review: the best consumer helmet camera on the market

 

More InfoContour+ helmet cam goes official, bringing 1080p video with wider viewing angleContour+ vs. GoPro HD Hero2: through the desert and into

Great, discreet design ; Rotatable lens ; Wireless connectivity ; Quick, accurate GPS

Middling audio quality ; Still pricey

Contour's latest POV camera is the one we'd choose for helmet-required action sports.

Contour+2 review

 

Contour's line-topping Contour+ HD sports camera would have been one of our favorites, but we hesitated to recommend it because Contour's own less-expensive cameras, the ContourGPS and the ContourRoam , were cheaper, more rugged, and easier to use.

The Contour+2 captures crisp, HD video. The new Instant On-Record slider greatly increases simplicity. Bluetooth allows app connectivity, GPS allows location data to be embedded in video, and the waterproof case is now included.

Even with the new lower price, the Contour+2 is more expensive than the GoPro HD Hero2.

The Contour+2 combines the best features of the entire Contour camera line in one simple, powerful flagship model.

This excellent wearable action camera records high-quality video, sports a rotating lens and lets you use your smartphone as a viewfinder.

Lens rotates; iOS app connects via Bluetooth; Connects with Mod Live goggles

Short battery life; Low photo resolution

Contour+2

 

The Contour+2 is ideal for action adventurers who want a helmet camera with a simple recording control. For other applications, the Contour+2 presents a frustrating user experience, which is disappointing, given its premium price.

Simple to start recording and lock into place ; Able to stream over HDMI ; Rotating lens element ; GPS tracking

MicroSD card can come out of place in rough-and-tumble situations ; No screen, so beeps and lights are difficult to interpret ; Australian RRP is very expensive

At AU$549, it is hard to justify the cost of the Contour+2 over its nearest competitors, the GoPro and the Sony.

The Contour+2 may not snag full HD video that's quite as crisp as the GoPro Hero 3, as you'll see in our group test above, it does have one major advantage: a waterproof case as standard, which might just make this the action camera of choice for...

This year's flagship Contour+2 is better and cheaper than its predecessor.

Better performance, better value, better everything than the original Contour+

Contour +2 Test: Action-Cam mit GPS fürs iPhone

 

Action-Kamera-Hersteller Contour bietet in der Contour +2 Bluetooth-Vernetzung und Full-HD-Video. Wir haben die Kamera im Test und sagen, ob ernsthafte Konkurrenz für den Platzhirsch GoPro entsteht.

Kompakt, Einfachste Video-Bedienung, Wasserdicht, Drehbares Objektiv

Ultrabreites Blickfeld und 60 FPS nicht bei Full-HD, Bildrauschen

Contour +2

 

Contour +2 er det dyreste kameraet i testen. Med innebygd GPS og med svært lite bildestøy klatrer det til topps.

Flott bildekvalitet, GPS ; Styres m/ mobilapp (bluetooth)

Tynn lyd

Lydkvaliteten fra mikrofonen er slank, og kan fort skurre. Da er det bra man kan bruke ekstern mikrofon. Contour +2 er rett og slett et meget godt kamera. Best i test!

Contour+ 2 : la plus résistante de toutes

 

La Contour+ 2 propose une approche originale, avec des spécificités propres. De quoi se poser en vraie alternative à la GoPro !

Qualité vidéo jour / nuit ok ; Lentille rotative / fixation 1/4 ; Robustesse boîtier alu / caisson fourni ; Réactive / réglages via appli

Plus lourde / grosse que la moyenne ; Pas d'écran / que deux modes possibles ; 125° en 1080p (et non 170°) / audio moyen ; Soft Storytelling limité / qqs bugs

2> La Contour+ 2 est vendue à 365 € au minimum. C'est donc un peu plus cher que la Drift HD Ghost. Mais est-ce mérité ? La qualité d'image est tout aussi bonne en plein jour, et même meilleure par faible luminosité. La caméra de Contour affiche par...
