Last we heard, Contour had found capital to resuscitate it, then months of blank footage. Now, they’re officially back with the Contour Roam2 and Plus2 HD action sports video cameras, warranty support and a broad range of mounts and accessories.
The Contour+2 (Plus2) is their GPS enabled, live streaming, 120fps capturing bad boy with mobile connectivity. It ships with a waterproof case. The Contour Roam2, shown above in its color options, comes waterproof outta the box but skips the GPS and mobile connections and has just 60fps video capture. Both are full 1080p HD with their 270º rotating lens and 170º wide angle eye.

They offer mounts for putting the camera just about anywhere you’d like.
PRESS RELEASE: CONTOUR, pioneers of the action sports camera industry, is now under new ownership and is once again a key contender in the Point of View (POV) camera market. After completing a financial overhaul, reorganizing its plans for new product innovation and building a framework for vastly improved distribution, CONTOUR is back on the map as a legitimate player in the POV world.
CONTOUR is already focused on regaining market share through select distributors worldwide. The brand’s financial outlook is solid with key retailers committing to the product line in every target market.
“The aim is clear—we want to create a world class company to support this world class product,” said Danny Lysenko, CEO of CONTOUR. “While recovering CONTOUR’s position in the market, we’ll continue the long tradition of being at the forefront of innovation and bringing to market beautifully simple, yet ultimately professional cameras.”
In the coming months CONTOUR plans to launch new cameras that feature the same award winning, streamlined styling that has set its products apart for more than a decade. With industry-leading technology that includes a one-touch locking record switch, laser alignment system and 270-degree rotating lens, the new CONTOUR cameras will deliver unsurpassed digital clarity and easy-to-use convenience that will ensure every moment of adventure is captured.
