The UK distributers of Contour products (Ultra Sport Europe) kindly agreed to send me one of the new Contour + 2 cameras for test. Over the last hour or so I have taken a few shots of the camera and have downloaded the apps for both my Mac and iPhone (more on them later).
Here is what Contour say about the + 2:
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.
The camera comes in a nice little box that also contains all the bits and bobs you need to get started. This even includes a 4GB micro SD card.
Camera Waterproof (to 60m) Housing
4GB Micro SD Card with SD adaptor
Rotating Flat Adhesive Mount
Profile Adhesive Mount (which is shaped like the actual camera – nice touch)
Initial impressions are pretty good. It looks and feels like a solid package. I really like the idea that you get everything you need to get started. From opening the box to taking the initial video was only a few minutes which is quite impressive. I’m really looking forward to checking this loverly bit of kit out over the next few weeks.
The Contour + 2 even has its own laser level!
