For a long time I've been interested in finding a good video camera for all the activities I enjoy. Unfortunately typical cameras require, for the most part, the use of one hand. Fly fishing, hunting, shooting, and off roading, all require two hands to safely and accurately perform those tasks so I've never really had a desire to spend money on a video camera. That was the case until I found out about the Contour Roam. These simple video camera is designed for action and with the proper mount it requires no hands to operate (other than turning it on).
I intend on purchasing a head mount soon so I can now record my fishing and hunting trips. I'm trying to figure out a way to mount it to my dog so I can see his perspective when looking for birds.
This Roam was purchased from Grey Group during their 12 days of Christmas sale. The regular price is $200, I purchased mine for $150. That's not bad. I'll be trying it out soon as I plan on a waterfowl hunt and a pheasant hunt in the coming weeks. I'll review it once I get a chance to ply with it. Depending on how much I like this, future posts may contain only videos for now on but I doubt it as I actually like taking still photos.
