WHAT IS CONTOUR?
Contour is the maker of the world's first (and lightest) HD helmet cam and the world's first wearable GPS video camera. ContourGPS and ContourHD are the ideal hands-free video cameras to shoot and share HD video for your active lifestyle. Light enough to fit on your goggles, their compact and rugged helmet cameras make high def video affordable.
The Contour HD revolutionized the way people shoot and share video by creating the first wearable HD video camera. Its secret is the low profile design mated to the patented TRail™ system that makes it easy to slide and lock to your body, equipment, or vehicle.
The camera, at only 4.3 ounces, is the smallest and lightest hands free video camera in the world, allowing it to virtually disappear while wearing it. Easy to operate and use. It's as simple as sliding a single oversized switch forward to start and backwards to stop, even with a pair of gloves on. In addition we make it simple to line up your shot with a rotating lens and two lasers that assure that you capture that perfect shot.
The Contour HD captures beautiful 1080p video. It utilizes a 135° wide-angle lens that delivers a true high quality image that captures all the action with minimal distortion or fish eye. It records Full HD in all its glory.
We provide several different camera settings so that you can get the shot that best fits your activity. Choose between 3 resolutions and 2 frame rates so that you get the best shots.
- Full HD 1080p (1920 x1080 @ 30 fps) to capture those awesome moments in the highest resolution available.
- Tall HD 960p (1280 x 960 @ 30fps) for those sports like surfing that are better suited to a taller image.
- Action HD 720p (1280 x 720 @ 60 fps) when frame rate is more important than resolution. The perfect setting to capture the fastest action. It reduces blur and rolling shutter effect.
- Contour 720p (1280 x 720 @30 fps). When space on your card is at a premium and you need to record that last epic adventure.
The aluminum body is tough and water resistant to take all of your outdoor abuse. Use your camera in the snow, sleet, mud, and rain and be assured that you will still capture that epic adventure without fail. If you are thinking of submerging your camera in your next activity use the waterproof case. It can handle depths of up to 10 meters so that you can feel confident your camera is safe and dry.
The built-in omni-directional microphone captures the rich sounds of the ride. Using AAC Audio Compression, the bottom-facing microphone assures you that you see and hear your adventure.
The compact and lightweight design principle was carried throughout every detail of the Contour HD. The internal Micro SD card captures hours of HD content while remaining one of the smallest pieces on the camera. When expanded up to 32 GB, it will record over 8 hours of HD content on one card when in Full HD 1080p mode.
We provide the tools for you to download the videos from your camera to your computer in just a few clicks. Editing is as simple as an "Awesome" button to feature the best parts of your story, then you can become the ultimate producer by adding a title, description, and keywords, and epic location of your video.
You provide the story, we give you the platform to tell thousands of members just like you. When you want to share it to more than your friends on Contour.com, we make it easy to share to all of your favorite social media sites.

Using the Easy Edit software you can make adjustments to your ContourHD 1080p to get just the look you want. Dial in your contrast (high, medium, or low), exposure (-4 to +4), metering (spot, center, average), and the sensitivity of the microphone
Fixed Focus 135° Lens
The ContourHD Wearable Camcorder lens allows you to capture everything in the scene without over-distorting the video. And, because it's fixed focus the entire scene stays in focus from start to finish
The ContourHD features a built-in microphone for totally reliving all the action. The mic is designed to keep wind noise to a minimum while honing in on the sound of your activity. In addition, the microphone can be configured to focus on the action sounds you want to capture
Records 8 Hours of HD Video
Record up to 8 hours of high definition video with this wearable camcorder when you're using a 16GB microSD memory card
Fits in the Palm of your Hand
TRail Mount Freedom
Contour's patent-pending TRail Mounts "slide and lock" the wearable camcorder onto a number of mounts for your goggles, helmet, handlebars, vehicle and pretty much anywhere your adventures take you under the sun
One Touch Recording
Even with gloves on you start and stop the ContourHD thanks to the slide record switch. Instead of worrying about complicated menu selections or hard to maneuver buttons the good folks at Contour kept things simple. Slide the switch forward to record and back to stop. If you need a silent mode (meaning no beep indicators) the camera can oblige as well
Dual Laser Alignment
The ContourHD uses two lasers and a 180° rotating lens to ensure that every time you shoot your video lines up. Turn on the lasers and rotate the lens until the lasers are horizontal and you're good to go
The camera is not only water-resistant, but made from anodized aluminum that withstands dust, dirt, mud, and snow. In addition, shock, vibration, and impact resistance makes the ContourHD one tough cookie
Built-In Rechargeable Battery
The wearable camcorder is powered by a removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery. On a full charge you'll enjoy up to 4 hours of uninterrupted HD recording
