A bargain solid high-res camera!
In the box you get the camera, lens cap, 8gb Sd card and adaptor, 2 sticky mounts (one is 360 degree), 1 extra sticky pad for 360 mount, USB lead, carry bag, Contour sticker and a fail safe tie. Eight minutes of 1080p recording equates to approx. 1gb so in theory with the included 8gb card it should last an hour. I bought a 32gb card, don't go any higher than this as it's not supported. Use Class 10.
The images are good and still shots can taken in 5mp form. There are lots of adjustments for the picture quality, aspect, sound and even a mode for continuous still picture shooting whilst recording.
I've mounted mine on the side of my crash helmet. If you have a sports bike like me you will need to mount it above the horizontal, remember, when you lean on the bars your head dips down and you adjust your eyes up. If you don't adjust the camera up you will be recording the front tyre. The 360 mount is ideal for this as it can be rotated incrementally. It just takes trial and error. The laser is a handy feature to adjust the camera on the horizon. Still shots can be taken manually when recording or not. The sting in the tail is the price of extra mounts. Enjoy.
I used the adjustable mounting on my helmet, rather than the curved one, and found it gave me more adjustment potential plus the additional security of the tie string. It appears to be attached very securely.
Not too obtrusive.
I now get in the region of 3hrs and no more. You can however record and charge at the same time if you buy the official contour charge kit as the USB cable needed is a custom cable that charges only and cannot be used for data transfer.
I like the side mounting, you can see the edge of your helmet in the footage, but that doesn't bother me.
My favourite part is the simplicity - it's either on or off, none of this "is the light flashing?" malarky.
Overall I'm very happy & wish I'd got one years ago....
Contacted Contour in us and their uk supplier nothing not even a reply.
Very expensive to throw away get any other make but not Contour
