Me and Lewis went to the NEC on Sunday with the aim of buying a couple of cameras. We ended up buying the Contour Roam, and this is why:
We wanted GoPros as we thought they were the best ones. Then someone showed us Drift, which had some great features that GoPro did not.
On our way back after deciding what to get we saw the Contour UK stand.
The Model we bought (Roam) has taken all the best bits from the other 2 cameras, it has a slimmer profile than the GPro, you can turn the horizon so you have a straight picture after mounting, It has a laser sight so you can set the horizon more easily (this is wicked), it has loads of mounts available and rotating mounts, is HD and the best bits…
You slide the rubber slider on, it records… no fiddly buttons, it has a light that tells you it is recording.
It is waterproof, and they still gave us a waterproof case
It has 8 hours of recording life (GPro, and drift have about 2-3)
We love it. And worth the money
We got an email the next day as they thought they may have given us the wrong waterproof casings (they had not) they offered to send us out some more adhesive mounts, which i’ll update the post with once rec’d… they are obviously on the ball with customer care, i got a reply to my email within a few hours.
UPDATE: they sent us 2 t-shirts and 2 Rotating mounts, we didnt expect those ones, so well pleased
We’d use them again, and they have a facebook page where you can win one if you like them. Definitely worth a go, considering the price of one of these bits of kit
