This week, Contour released a sneak peek at its newest addition in their line of hands-free action sports camera. Packed with a myriad of new options, the Contour+2 gives action sports enthusiasts and filmmakers alike complete control of shooting options, styles and for the first time, tools to share your media across a variety of social media platforms.
Contour rose from humble beginnings in 2004 when undergraduate students and avid skiers, Marc Barros and Jason Green, created a simple hands-free helmet camera to record their trips. From selling building and selling their camera at a warehouse outside Seattle to becoming a market leader in the hands-free camera industry, Contour delivers crisp imagery in full HD and 1080p. Today, Contour stands as an innovative brand against such competitors as GoPro and Sony.
The Contour+2 will be available for purchase later this month at a price point of $399.99. In addition to 1080 HD video, users can track speed, distance and elevation of their location. Contour’s newest release bridges the gap for those interested in sharing their videos by offering the ability to share their content across YouTube, Vimeo and now Facebook. With a built-in ‘Instant-On’ record switch and 60-meter waterproof casing, users can be on the go and record their adventures at the touch of a button.
The Contour+2 joins the lineup of Contour’s other cameras: ContourHD, ContourGPS, Contour+ and ContourROAM. For more information on the features of the new Contour+2, visit Contour‘s website.
