VholdR ContourHD Camera
- Product Review (submitted on October 22, 2009):
- Let's start by the obvious : For this price tag, the quality is amazing. It looks a lot better than your standard camcorder and you should get it as it is the best bang for your bucks. Now, the ugly. I used it with the goggle mount while riding downhill / freeride bike and the image is blurry when you look at it frame by frame and the still images you extract for it aren't great (I know, it's not a digital camera). Optical or software image stabilization should be implemented in future version. The goggle mount is tough and never felled, but move with every bumps of the terrain (my goggle strap were tightened a lot to reduce this) and adds to the blurriness of the image. Colors are good, but nothing impressive : I shooted in the woods, at Fall, with a lot of natural lights, and it doesn't come out with that much colors. With that said, I repeat : this product is pretty good, but don't be fooled : it's a cheap near HD helmetcam (720i according to my editing software). I'm looking forward for the ContourHD 1080P and don't regret my purchase. Just wanted to give my 2 cents on this.
