Keeping up with the action, the camera’s high speed shooting system can capture 120fps at 480p, 30 and 60fps at 720p and 30fps at 1080p, making super slow motion easy to achieve.

Simply push the slider forward to its locking position and you can concentrate on the more important stuff, like having fun.
Your Data, Everywhere
Whether you’re racing around the track or falling through the sky, the built-in GPS receiver enables you to capture data related to your speed, location and elevation. Selecting a graphical overlay gives you total control over what information you add, resulting in amazing data-rich video. And with downloadable desktop software you can retrace your steps with the video mapping program.
Get a different perspective through the wireless viewfinder on your smartphone and control recording remotely.
With the Contour Connect mobile app you can turn your iOS or Android device into the ultimate, wireless remote-control and viewfinder. With built-in Bluetooth your smart device can be coupled with the Contour+2 allowing you to remotely adjust camera settings, check your memory and battery status, preview your shot, and start and stop recording. So if you want to film your friends but want to stay well clear of danger the Contour+2 has the perfect solution.
Whether snorkel or scuba the Contour+2 can film submerged when used with the waterproof case, and for deeper dives the unit is rated down to 60 metres.
Go Deeper Underwater
If your action takes you deep below the surface on a diving expedition or you just love to film in the surf, the Contour+2 comes with a protective waterproof case. Specifically designed for this camera; the waterproof case is rated down to 60 metres meaning you’ll be able to take your camera virtually anywhere without fear of water damage. If you don't need to submerge the camera then without the waterproof case the Contour+2 is designed to withstand tough impacts, snow, and light rain without additional protection.
This camera is not only easy to use, but is extremely versatile. With a huge selection of mounts you’ll never have to worry about getting the perfect shot. The Contour+2 comes with a Profile Mount, for fixing the camera to your helmet, and a Rotating Flat Surface Mount, which is designed to use on a number of surfaces and gives you the confidence that once locked it will stay in place. Contour provides mounts for everything from surfing to skiing, tactical performance and sportsman adventures, as well as general usage such as mounting to hats or goggles.
The built-in GPS Receiver tracks your speed, distance and elevation and enables data-rich video.
And once mounted you can ensure the camera is level with the horizon by using the in-built Laser Line. Using the projected line as a guide simply rotate the lens up to 270° until the line is horizontal and you're ready to go. You may of course prefer to record at an angle or even upside down for a completely different perspective.
Contour recognise that even the smallest details in a video can make a huge difference to the final result. With the ability to adjust white balance, exposure, metering, contrast and sharpness, you can be sure your camera will get the perfect video for the surrounding conditions. Even better, you can adjust all of this through the mobile app on your phone.
In addition to the great audio quality available with the internal microphone, you have the option to connect an external microphone to the 2.5mm jack. Since many external mics use a 3.5mm jack, the camera also comes with a small adaptor cable to convert from 3.5mm to 2.5mm.
Whether you want to live stream your video to your widescreen TV or play back your directing debut, the HDMI port will allow you to connect to a wireless transmitter or any other HDMI capable device and provide a real time view from the camera.
Using a rechargeable lithium-ion, 3.7V, 1050mAh battery the camera will operate for up to 2.5 hours. The battery can be recharged by connecting the camera to a PC/Mac or other suitable power source using the supplied USB Cable. A microSD card is required to store recorded video and data. A 4GB microSD card is included with the Contour+2 and this model is compatible with SDSC microSD Cards up to a capacity of 2GB and SDHC microSD Cards up to a maximum capacity of 32GB.
Making your adventure come to life, the Contour+2 is inspired by professionals and designed for the action enthusiast.
