ContourHD 1080p

Postby hemingray » Fri Jun 03, 2011 8:52 pm

I have one of these - I like it.

I haven't used it much out on the trail - that should change this season, though I'm never going to be Cecil B. DeGrizzlyGuy. I wish I'd brought it on the Switchback Trail ride last fall, but part of the mount was temporarily missing.

Anyway, this is cool video that shows it off - especially the skateboarding.

That looks really cool. Looks more like a camera than the go-pro.

LOL, I can't wait to see you at the academy awards. :)

I have one too, have had it for over a year, and never used it. When you burn out from ATV video making... you really burn out. Maybe you can inspire me to dust it off and give it a whirl.

Yeah, well, I'm not taking editing videos on as another hobby. I have enough fun with the radios right now! :shock:

Well...Hopefully I'm going to get a few of the Contour + models.

I just got off the phone with Dan, the marketing director at Contour. He's going to give Scott Travis 5 of the Pro Contour + cameras, mounts, extra batteries for the Judas Priest tour...and he said he would take care of me for my ATV stuff...Just to get one or two of these + models would be the bomb.

Stoked!! Maybe I can talk Eric to come out of retirement to make a few! :)

Well, that's pretty awesome.....er... EPIC!

It's definitely kinda cool to have the widescreen effect from such a small package. I think the Go Pro are pretty nice also though. I probably would have bought the waterproof case if I had the thing when we last went to Hawaii, snorkeling would look totally cool on HD!
