Product Description

Product Description

Picture shows all four colour variations of the Contour ROAM2 camera.
Take your pick and colour coordinate your kit by choosing one of four stylish colours.

The ContourROAM2 is quite simply the easiest and most stylish way to shoot action video. Building on the success of our most-loved camera the ContourROAM, the high-performing ContourROAM2 retains the key features of its predecessor while including some brilliant updates. Packed with well-designed features like four HD-video modes, an Instant-On Record Switch, a 270° rotating lens, and Contour's signature laser alignment, you'll have everything you need in a compact, easy-to-use camera. And whether you want to stand out in the crowd with the vibrant red, green or blue colour options, or stick with stylish black, the ContourROAM2 offers a lot more than just good looks.

Crystal Clear HD Video

The ContourROAM2 with full HD (1080p) recording capability provides crisp, clear images for those moments that won’t stand still. And with the 5MP sensor you can set the camera in Still Photo Mode to take pictures every 1, 3, 5, 10, 30, or 60 seconds. In Video Mode the camera’s high speed shooting system can capture 60fps at 720p and 30fps at 1080p, achieving that smooth video quality you’ve come to expect from Contour cameras. All this together with the 170° wide-angle custom six-element glass lens, combine to create captivating action images you’ll want to view time and again.

Even when the action includes getting wet the ContourROAM2 is happy to join in.

Simple Operation

Still the simplest camera to use on the market, the Locking Instant-On Record Switch makes it easy to get the perfect shot. Even in extreme conditions the camera will continue to record without fear of being accidentally deactivated. Simply push the slider forward to its locking position and you can concentrate on the more important stuff, like having fun.

Watersport Madness

If you love to water ski or ride waves in the surf the waterproof ContourROAM2 will capture all the action. Waterproof to a depth of 1 metre you won’t have to worry about spray or dipping it in the water. If you want to submerge the camera at greater depths the Contour Waterproof Case is available as an optional accessory and is specifically designed to protect the camera down to 60 metres.

Picture shows the Contour ROAM2 being attached to a frost covered mountain bike.
Mount your camera at an angle and still achieve a level shot with the 270° rotating lens.

Mounting Versatility

With a huge selection of mounts on offer you’ll never have to worry about getting the perfect shot. The ContourROAM2 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.

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.

Long Battery Life

The ContourROAM2 is powered by a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion 3.7V 1350mAh battery which is easily recharged in-camera using the supplied USB Cable. Thanks to the Instant-On Record Switch there is no standby mode so you can shoot up to 3.5 hours without needing to recharge. Video and data are stored on microSD card and a 4GB card is included. The ContourROAM2 can also be used with SDSC microSD cards up to 2GB and SDHC microSD cards up to 32GB.

The ContourROAM2 is ready for any adventure so live life in colour and share your action packed moments through film.

5.0 out of 5 stars The right choice!! 15 May 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I had pondered on this for some time, looking at the Go Pro, for which i nearly pulled the trigger but lost my nerve after not so encouraging reviews. I then thought about a cheaper option but i'm such a HD snob that i decided to check the reviews for this. I need this mostly to capture the stunning Scottish scenery i pass while travelling on my motorbike. It came well packaged and i was happy upon opening to find a sturdy camera with 4gb card and an adapter card for it to slot into for easy plugin to TV, PC etc. There was a mincey instruction picture card with four steps which made obvious what to do. I thought a bit more instructions would have been better but as i rarely read them it wasn't a grudge!! Product website is full of useful info anyway! (Worth visiting for easy to do update on camera also)
I seriously took my time mounting on the bottom right side of my helmet. I held it on tightly, recorded for a few seconds then checked the footage. I was delighted to see just the tip of my helmet in the shot so i stuck it on with the super adhesive swivel mount that was provided. This was great for adjusting the angle to match my point of vision. The laser beam test facility is a great trick for testing against the wall before i leave to ensure i'm filming what i want to film. It makes obvious where the camera is pointing. Out on the bike the large sliding record button is idiot proof. Forward and back, start and stop, so easy!!
I was delighted with the picture on my mac and had a laugh running it through iMovie to make a quick movie trailer and load on Facebook. The picture i get on my 50 TV is also stunning! Of course the sound is taboo while riding at high speeds but to expect anything else would be stupid!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great POV cam 7 Mar 2013
Colour Name:Black
Just got the Roam2 and really impressed with it. Great build quality and looks real cool. Very happy with the image quality and that you are able to adjust things like sharpness, exposure, contrast etc. Simple things like a lens cap and a leash attachment are nice finishing touches. Also got the Contour Flex strap as I consider it a great mount for use in many situations.

Initially I thought I would be stuck with the settings I select when leaving the PC but there is a work around. You could have different SD cards for different settings as the file that retains settings is on the card. You could also edit the TXT file on the card using a smartphone. You have 2 ways to do this. You can either insert the micro sd into your phone and edit the file or if your phone supports OTG you can get the appropriate lead to allow your phone to connect to the camera so as to edit the file.

The file is not view able on a PC unless you change the settings to allow viewing of hidden files. You will see the FW_RTC.txt file once you have enabled hidden files to show which you can edit on your phone/ tablet using free simple txt file editor. It is very simple and just make sure you select Y for the update attribute after selecting new settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best money I've spent in a long time! 17 April 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I have to give this 5 stars as I'm extremely impressed. I've so far used it twice, mounted to the side of my motorcycle helmet, once on the way to work in daylight and once on the way home in darkness. The picture quality is excellent and wide angle of the lens gives a great picture.

There is a bit of wind noise but I expected that having read other reviews and watched footage on YouTube so it wasn't a problem. I was slightly concerned about the sticky pad mounting on the side of the helmet however it seems fairly solid (after picking up the helmet by the camera and shaking it about).

It was simple to set up and even simpler to use even with the gloves on. I'm looking forward to taking this away on holiday later in the year and I'm expecting some great footage. I would definitely recommend this!

5.0 out of 5 stars ROAM2 13 May 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I bought this camera to record footage of me on my bike - partly because I am doing a charity bike ride later this year and wanted to record the event, partly to help provide evidence against careless drivers after experiencing two recent accidents on the bike and numerous near-misses.

I looked at the GoPro Hero2 which is pretty much the best 'action camera' you can buy on the market...but the 'Fisher Price' design put me off a bit - wearing that on top of your bike helmet makes you look a bit like a Telly Tubby. And then there's the cost. I couldn't justify it. I then started looking at the Veho Muvi VC-005 which is a much cheaper camera but pretty cool looking. However, I read a few mixed reviews about it. Then, by chance I tumbled across the Contour ROAM2 online and boy am I glad I did.

It sits between the Veho and the Go Pro in terms of price which was fine by me. Reviews were generally all positive and what I liked was that it was waterproof (up to 1m) so no need to buy an additional rain protection casing which I would have had to do with the Veho Muvi camera. I also liked the sleek 'bullet style' design.

When the camera arrived I was instantly impressed. The packaging had an 'apple' style feel to it and the camera itself was reassuringly heavy - I had expected it to be a bit 'plasticy' but not a all - it looks and feels like it is made from quality material and built to last. The controls are pretty simple - it's plug and play. There is a large 'on/off' switch for recording which makes a satisfying loud beep when you switch it in either direction. Some people in reviews said they found the volume of this annoying but when out on my bike I like to know that the camera is definitely 'on' so the confirmation beep is great...
