• Viewfinder App For Contour Lets iPhone View Video Live

    We tested the ContourHD a few months back and liked it for the most part. The only problem was that we couldn’t see what we were recording, often leading to accidental filming of the sky and over-exposed video. That issue is no more — well for the ContourHD it is, but not the newer ContourGPS — because the ContourGPS has Bluetooth to connect to an iPhone. Not only can the… Read More

  • ContourHD giveaway has a winner! – or does it? (yes, it does)

    Hey, all! Thanks for entering the contest, but as they say: many will enter, few will win. In this case only one: James, who “Did my first backflip snowboarding off a 20 foot cliff, luckily it was all powder I landed in, because i landed pretty much on my head, and my friends had to dig me out of the three feet of powder. It was great.” Watch your email, James. My random number… Read More

  • Giveaway: ContourHD 1080p wearable HD cam

  • Wearable ContourHD cam gets lens kit and waterproof housing accessories

    Devin recently reviewed the ContourHD 1080p, a wearable HD camcorder designed to be worn during activities that would cause other camcorders to self-destruct. One thing it couldn’t do, however, was go into the water (though it resisted some splashing). It’s not designed to be waterproof out of the box, which definitely could be a problem for divers, rafters, or other… Read More

  • Review: ContourHD wearable 1080p camcorder

    The Short Version: The ContourHD 1080p is a capable, semi-rugged, conveniently-shaped HD camcorder that’s great for all kinds of sporting and active events where a full-size camera isn’t practical. The 1080p video has admirable still image quality, but skew and compression mean it’s more of an enthusiast tool than a professional one. But for $330, it’s a great little… Read More

  • VholdR ups its ContourHD action-cam up to 1080p

    It was only a couple months ago that you all thrilled to the reasonably fast and extremely loud video adventures of Mister Ha. VholdR decided that 720p wasn’t good enough for rattly rolls through Stuyvesant Town, so they’ve updated the ContourHD to go up to 1080p. Other than the resolution upgrade there doesn’t seem to be anything changed, but to hear Peter tell it… Read More

  • Feet-on with the VholdR ContourHD

    Here it is, action sport stars, some real POV footage taken with the VholdR ContourHD instead of the garbage office tour I took earlier in the week. Turn down the volume on your speakers! I’ve included the video that’s currently live on VholdR’s site and YouTube for the full HD video. Read More

  • Quick Look: VholdR ContourHD

    It’s not the POV action footage you’re meant to be shooting with the ContourHD, but I’m stuck in the office and this is the best I can do for now. You can check out the VholdR site for raw action footage until I can get my own up, which should be tomorrow since I’m picking up my skateboard from my old apartment today. Read More

  • VholdR launches the first wearable HD camera, the ContourHD

    Thanks to VholdR you can now record your daredevil shenanigans in HD (720p). Like the original VholdR, the ContourHD can be strapped to your helmet or goggles (weighs only 4 ounces) and the water resistant anodized aluminum body ensure it can take a tumble or two. You can record up to eight hours of HD footage at 30fps onto a 16GB microSD card or 16 hours of SD footage at 60fps. Read More
