Test-Biking the ContourROAM2: An Easy-to-Use, Wearable Camera
Hands-free, point-of-view cameras aren't just for high-action thrill seekers anymore. The waterproof ContourROAM2 is billed as a simple, wearable recording device at a relatively low price point ($200), and we took the ultraportable camera for a spin to experience all the high-def action for ourselves.
The ContourROAM2, which debuted last Fall, is the sequel to Contour's bestselling Roam HD camcorder, with improved image quality, video stabilization, and brand-new colors. The camera is targeted toward mobile moviemakers who don't need GPS or WiFi capability or aren't in a position to drop serious bank on a recorder (the high-end Contour+2 is $400).
Find out all the pros and cons of the ContourROAM2 to see if the colorful action camera suits your hands-free recording requirements.
