With the largest lens of any PoV camera, the Contour+ captures beautiful 1080p video. The 2.8" aperture, 170° wide-angle rotating lens delivers the truest, high quality image with minimal distortion and fish-eye. It records and streams Full HD in all its glory - all from Contour's unique, award-winning form-factor.
Professional storytelling demands the right tools and technology. Designed as our first hands-free camera for the true videographer, the Contour+ delivers the tools and technology for this advanced segment with expanded capabilities and supplemental features. Packed with the highest level of progression of any hands-free camera to hit the market, Contour+ is made to capture not only the action, but also the full story with depth, focus and clarity. The result is rich video from the one camera with all the tools to do the job.
Stunning footage is what makes the shot, and the Contour+ is specifically set up for capturing the perfect visuals. The reason is a market-leading mix of camera technology, from a six-element glass lens and 1080p video quality, to adjustable white balance for dialing in the details of each location. The Contour+ also expands normal perspective with an F 2.8, 170° superwide-angle lens, integrating peripherals and backdrops that would get cropped with a narrower focus. In addition, we incorporated a 270° rotating lens to allow you mount or position the camera in an infinite number of ways.
Action moves at real time, so why deal with a delay in the coverage? The Contour+ enables live streaming - via HDMI, creating a direct connection to film shoots, event coverage and contest runs. Whether for broadcast or simply building a following, this capability allows videographers and athletes to provide an inside window into the action. No other hands-free camera can make this claim, so grab this one if you're headed to the X Games.
With all our modern devices, connection is key - so we've made the Contour+ the most connected POV camera ever. First up is Bluetooth®, which provides filmmakers a wireless viewfinder via your mobile phone/device to check the angle before dropping in. The camera also connects via an HDMI port, allowing live streaming of HD video via monitor or TV - to quickly and easily watch and enjoy your videos. This eliminates the lag time of downloads and transfers when checking footage on location or back home. Learn more
Video is only one part of the story, which is why we've equipped the Contour+ with an external 2.5mm microphone jack. This audio capability allows you to improve and open up your sound options from interviews to getting audio in difficult or once unattainable situations. Use it with a high quality external microphone or headset to really get pro quality audio.
We’ve packed the Contour+ full of filmmaking features that you might not know you need until you dive into the next project. Start with the legendary ContourHD video quality, offering an array of resolutions and frame rates as well as a 5 megapixel still mode. To that winning package we mix in our industry-leading GPS recording that tracks speed, location, and elevation four times per second. Bottom line - the Contour+ is stacked with everything you need to get the shot and tell the story.
Location is a central element of any story and the GPS receiver in the Contour+ tracks exact location, speed and altitude while shooting in hands-free HD. The slick feature links personal footage to a specific place and adds interactive depth to your story.
Running short on space is a huge hassle, which is why the Contour+ stacks all your footage on a removable microSD card. Compatible with cards up to 32 gigs, the setup allows an easy swap to a fresh card when you’ve filled the first one to capacity.
With a burly, water-resistant aluminum shell, the Contour+ is made to take a beating in extreme environments from raging storms to muddy tracks. For full submersion sports add the waterproof case to keep it dry up to 60 meters deep(available summer 2011).
Dialing in the ideal angle is a critical component to capturing unique footage. Contour+ makes it easy with custom body, gear or vehicle mounts for the full spectrum of sports from shooting and skiing to high-octane motorized activities.
