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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
