Okay, here’s the beef – the ContourHD is the world’s first headcam to shoot in high definition. Which means there’s another gadget to spend your cash on and you can now re-live your motorcycle adventures in the sort of pin sharp clarity you never thought you’d need. Though only if you remember to clean the lens.
It costs $299 and you can buy it on line from Amazon et al. As a point of interest I can only assume that the UK importer has misplaced his calculator or is forecasting parity for Pound and Dollar as they’re quoting £299.
In the words of the manufacturer this is what it does…
ContourHD is the world’s first High Definition wearable camcorder that combines amazing video clarity (choose between High Definition or High Action), a wide-angle lens (135 degrees), single-button simplicity, and a click to share online experience.
Perfected for outdoor use, ContourHD can switch between crisp HD quality video (captured at 30 frames per second) or SD quality video (captured at 60 frames per second). This camera is the ideal complement to your outdoor gear with its all-in-one design ContourHD has no wires or separate recorder. Instead it records up to 8 hours of HD video to its own internal memory card (compatible with up to a 16 GB microSD card). Its light (4 ounces) but armored aluminum body enables you to capture video in any weather conditions. ContourHD’s TRail Mounts seamlessly attach the camera to your body, helmet, goggles, or vehicle for hands-free recording.
