We took our most coveted features from the ContourROAM and the original Contour+ and created a camera that is not only easier to use, but brings an entirely new perspective to your adventures. Share beautiful 1080p HD video with speed, distance, and elevation across the social networks you use most. Featuring even better video quality, an Instant On-Record switch, and a 60-meter waterproof case for those underwater adventures, the Contour+2 will bring your stories to life like never before.
Strengths: I actually own the ROAM, so doesn't have quite the same features, but still an excellent option. All the things mentioned in the review I find accurate. PLUS, you can use an adaptor so that this camera works with ALL the Hero mounts, eliminating the shortcoming mentioned in the review. I've got mine set up to use the Chest mount for mtn biking and it works really well (have bashed it around at Whistler, without any issues).
Weaknesses: I'd love to be able to see what I'm filming. I believe this one does have the option to connect to your smartphone via bluetooth, which the ROAM doesn't. And the ROAM also doesn't offer GPS.
Great camera. Limited mount issue is overcome with an adapter and can then be used with all the Hero mounts. With the new ROAM2, you now get the 60fps action filming (was only 30 fps for the original ROAM).

I was thinking a tripod mount that'll tighten so the camera doesn't turn and a similar oring wrap-around l ... Read More »
Ok I just got my contour and I successfully updated the Roam 2 firm ware. Yeah me!! Some quick questions for a challenged mind...

2. Is there a way to modify videos to email a smaller file
3. Can you message videos?

I just bought a Contour +2 and found that I couldn't even hear my friend talking to me from 10 feet away as I was standing in my driveway. I heard that audio quality was bad, but is it really that bad? I've since boosted the audio on the software, but it was already over halfway so I'm not sure th ... Read More »
I have a contour +2 which I am really enjoying. I haven't taken it out on the trail yet, just the pool. My question to you who have is this.
Do you use the Contour inside the waterproof case on the trail, or just mount it directly to your helmet? If you mount it directly, are there any conditi ... Read More »
Picked up one of the Contour Roams on Amazon (the watersports kit version) and I've liked it so far, but I wanted better, so I modded the stock firmware to record 720p @ 60fps (versus the stock recording of 720p @ 30fps).
Messing around, and comparing the differences between the Roam 1 and Roam 2 ... Read More »
