The Contour+ is the top-of-the-range model from Contour, and it can record 1080p video, as well as audio, via an external microphone. In addition to video, the Contour+ also can capture 5-megapixel still images. The fast ƒ/2.8 lens offers a wide 170º field of view to help capture the bigger scene in addition to the action. The lens can be rotated up to 270º, allowing you to mount it in a variety of positions and still keep your framing straight.
One of the challenges of working with a POV camera like this is that there's no easy way to change settings or check your shot once the camera is mounted. Contour solved this problem by offering an app for Apple iOS or Android phones that lets you preview your shot and adjust exposure settings from the phone via Bluetooth. You also can check your GPS location—the Contour+ has GPS tracking built in.
If you're looking for a way to be part of the action and record it at the same time, a point-of-view camera like the Contour+ gives you an exciting new angle. List Price: $499.
