Review VholdR ContourHD Wearable Video Camera / Camcorder 1200 Pros

VholdR ContourHD Wearable Video Camera / Camcorder 1200 allows hands free recording of the most intense sports and many other activities. The Contour HD Video Camera records to an internal MicroSD memory card to capture up to 8 hours of 1280x720 pixel HD video at 30 frames per second (fps) in widescreen 16:9 format (compatible up to a 16GB Memory Card). The ContourHD by VholdR can also catch the fastest paced action in standard definition (SD) at 60 fps which is twice as fast as TV quality video.

Contour uses an advanced image sensor and video processor in the tiny ContourHD which are tuned to capture changing colors and lighting conditions. The Vholder Contour-HD features a wide angle lens that balances field of view with image quality. The Contour High Definition Video Camera records full audio with an internal microphone that cuts out wind noise.

Engadget recently featured a review of the ContourHD Wearable Video Camera, which states "operation is simple, with a pair of lasers helping you get the Contour HD aligned, a button on the back to turn it on, and a slider to start filming." The review also explains the ContourHD 's design is much more aesthetic than the competition, so it can be worn with pride.

The VholdR ContourHD uses a simple, large slide-button recording button to ensure an easy start and stop that you can use even while wearing Action Cameras. VholdR uses TRail Mounts technology to "slide and lock" onto different mounts for your Action Cameras, helmet, handlebars, vehicle, or anywhere else you want to mount it. The Armored water-resistant protective body is very light at only 4 ounces/116 grams of anodized aluminum, and ensures dust, dirt, mud, and snow will not destroy it.

In the shooters community this works great, especially in USPSA. Since we do a lot of running and fast shooting, most hat cams are ghostly looking and the sound and picture doesn't play together. This was easy to turn on and off, water proof, and worth every cent. Pros: Versatile Uses Cons: ?
