jim, athens Just point and shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The camera is almost perfect.I bought it to film my trips with my bike
It has very good image even at night with city lights.
Bad points:
I am very disapointed with the camera 's mount bases.
the goggle strap mount is suitable only for motocross helmets.the other base with the sticker is useless for a motorbike because it detaches unless you ride at 10 km/h...
moreover i tried to make a patent with this base. i screw it on my bike.it worked for a while , but after some potholes of the road it broke because it is a cheap plastic base...
So if you are intrested to buy the camcorder for your bike, you need to buy an extra mount.

Manufacturer's Description

The ContourHD 1080p camera captures sharp full HD video. It uses a 135° wide-angled lens that delivers a high quality image capturing all the action with minimal distortion or fish eye. It records Full HD in all its stunning glory.

As with the rest of the Contour range of cameras, the 1080p is extremely easy to use with one big sliding switch you can activate with your gloves on to start recording.

It fires LASERS out to help you aim the camera and get it pointing in the right direction. A camera with LASERS! what could be better?
