ContourHD has you covered, with its body encased in a water-resistant anodized aluminum armor - allowing you to capture incredible footage no matter what the weather has in store.

It uses just one button to record up to 16 hours of crisp High-Definition video, which is stored internally to a MicroSD memory card.

Customized Shooting to Suit Your Needs
Life is better with choice and the same is true with Cameras. The ContourHD's Easy Edit software enables you to configure your videos to meet your requirements. You are able to change the contrast from low to medium or high to suit lighting conditions and you can set the exposure values between -4 to +4.

Also, control what sounds you do and don't want to record by adjusting the microphone sensitivity. Craft your HD videos to enhance the action packed events contained within.
Don't Miss a Thing
You get the best of both worlds when shooting with the ContourHD. Sporting a 135 degree single focus lens, the camera is able to capture much more of the scene - without creating over-distortion in the final video. This ensures that the rush experienced while filming the scene will still be present anytime the video is viewed.
16 Hours of Continuous Filming
You will never have to think about tapes and wires again. The ContourHD has the ability to record up to 16 hours of continuous High Definition footage. This all-in-one wearable HD camcorder records to an internal MicroSD memory card and can accommodate up to 32GB if storage. Never miss a super charged moment again because you ran out of tape, or pulled a connection! This camera always has you covered.
Sound is Just as Important as Sight
Silent films have never had the same affect as a film with sound. Why should yours be any different? With the ContourHD, record your action filled moments with full audio and keep the adrenaline of the moment alive. With this camera, you are able to fine-tune the microphone sensitivity to keep wind noise low, while capturing the high-energy sounds of the ride.
Complete Ease of Use
The Smallest in the World
The ContourHD 1080p is the smallest wearable camcorder in the world. Weighing only 4.3 ounces it does not affect the ride like some other cumbersome camcorders might. This camera fits right in the palm of your hand, and is in fact so tiny; you may even forget that you have it on.
Keep your videos interesting with creative mounting techniques. The ContourHD 1080p can be mounted pretty much anywhere you need it to be with our "slide and lock" patent-pending TRail™ Mounts. Create memorable shots from your handlebars, goggles, helmet, vehicle...or, wherever you see fit. Keeping your HD videos unique and memorable just got easier.
Just One Button to Push
Too many buttons are just unnecessary; you have enough to think about when you're hitting the trails hard. That is why we created the ContourHD with one easy button. Simply slide the record switch forward to begin recording and slide it back to stop - without removing your riding gloves. You can also set the camera to silent mode, if the beeps are too distracting for you.
Dual Laser Alignment = Fool Proof Recording
I know, this camera keeps getting better, how can we continue to out do ourselves... well, In addition to having a 180¡ rotating lens, the ContourHD 1080p has 2 lasers to ensure perfect alignment on every shot. All you have to do is turn them on and rotate the lens until the lasers are horizontal - it is actually that simple, now focus on your ride.
A Lightweight Body of Armor
It may be small, but it's durable. Encased in a water-resistant anodized aluminum body, the ContourHD 1080p can record in most weather conditions. It is also equipped to be shock, vibration and impact resistant. So no matter what the environment throws at you, dust, mud, wind, rain or snow, this camera always has your back - and you have little else to worry about, besides that steep drop up ahead.

ContourHD 1080p FAQ's
kickass Review by Earl
This camera is compact & tough. Looking forward to trying it from 12,000 feet above. I'm more than satisfied with the picture quality. Well worth the cost. (Posted on 11-07-31)
Looking good for rc aerial video... Review by Matt
Got the camera today. WTF? this thing ROCKS!! I totally didn't know what to expect but Im sold on the contour after the first flight. I strapped it to my quadcopter for a very quick test flight using full hd and action HD. This is a CMOS camera so I was fully expecting to see the jello-effect from my vibrating quadcopter but nothing! super smooth great picture. I took it up to about 100 feet and just hovered in front of the house in the fading sunlight. Lots more testing on different platforms to come.
