This is news to us as we own the Contour + camera presently.  For our trip this summer we used the Contour HD 1080p and the regular Contour HD.  When we got back we were offered a free upgrade to the plus if we traded in our 1080p camera.  That was a no brainer for me.

Not sure if we will dive right into this technology but can you imagine the doors this will open while someone is on an adventure?  Cheryl and I talked about doing a live broadcast from the road to answer questions etc….but this might be even better.  I am not really a technologically gifted person hence to no live feed when we were on the road but it would have been easy to do via U Stream now that I think about it.  

Anyone out there…would you use something like this???


In the Market for a new Helmet Cam??????

Point of View Cameras has done a fantastic job reviewing and showing how the most popular brands compare to one another.  We own the Contour + HD camera presently and so far is seems like a decent camera.  I like the idea of being able to use an external mic.  The mic is an extra add on, you have to buy it on your own.  Contour provides the port on the camera and a cable to plug in your mic.  I am not too sure I like the way this camera records in the sense of colour saturation, but I have been told it is more natural in colour and I am not used to it.  Jury is still out. 

I should have recorded my ride home from work today. The gusts of wind made my BMW F650Gs feel like a kite at times and the pools of water because of the pouring rain were like huge PONDS…it was actually fun! 😉 Continue reading “In the Market for a new Helmet Cam??????”
