I recently purchased a contour +2 action camera to use in my video production. I bought it because it was small, durable, had an external mic jack, streamed wireless to my phone, was water proof, and had a built in GPS. So it only figures that I would do a post on a Contour Camera Review
When I got it, I found that it was oversold just a little bit – it has an HDMI out port – which they say allows it to be used as a webcam to apple computers – but the laptop I have is HDMI out only, so it will not work to tape my classes.
The video is a little jump as it has a low frame rate, and the lens makes everything look a little walleyed.
However, it comes with a waterproof case for scuba and snorkeling activities, and a bunch of different mounts – if I was using this solely as a gun cam, I would be very happy, as it is smaller and has more features than the go-pro.
Because I wanted a good quality camera with an external mic jack and I wanted to stay under $1000.00 I allowed myself to be taken by all the hoopla around this camera. I guess sionce I have a waterproof case I can finannyl start working on shooting the Glock underwater…
