|This Article Features Photo Zoom|
The Surfboard Mount with a waterproof case.
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.
Mounting is a key consideration with a camera like this, and Contour offers several cool options, from helmet and headband mounts to more exotic offerings like a suction-cup mount or the Surfboard Mount for surfing or jet-ski shots—just pair the mount with the optional Contour+ waterproof case. No matter where you want to mount your Contour+, there's a solution.
Use your iPhone or Android phone as a viewfinder and to change basic settings.
When it's time to pull your video together, Contour's Storyteller application lets you import and save your video, make basic edits, map the action via the recorded GPS data and share your video on popular social-media sites.
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.
