***So, I have been told this is not a pre-release…it’s out there to buy now. Anyone have this and how is it working for you????
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.
Just got my external Mic so I will have to test out the camera with the mic connected. This was a test run on my way home from work. The new camera has a 170 degree view but I do notice a little bending of trees etc when you look at the edges of the video. Our other camera used on this trip was the Contour GPS version and HD1080p with 135 degrees. The mic out of the box is not bad regarding wind noise and video quality I think is fantastic. Looking forward to see how I can use the external mic while traveling. Could have been cool to have this feature on our summer trip. Better late then never though. This was a free upgrade offered to me when we were on the road but could only take advantage of it when we got back.
