Out of the box, the new Contour Roam3 can dive to 30 feet without any special case, hence the non-cycling, water-themed launch video above. And, they’re claiming it has the best video and audio performance of any of their cameras, capturing 1080p video at 30fps.
It keeps all the other features Contour’s camera’s are known for, including the small form factor, laser leveling/sighting, rotating 270º lens with 170º field of view, 1/4-twenty mount, and the simple sliding on/off switch. This one also gets a 5MP quick shot feature that uses a single button to toggle between video and stills, a long life battery (3-3.5 hours, good since it’s built in) and a locking feature for the switch so it won’t get accidentally turned off. It even includes an 8GB memory card in the box.
The best part? It’s just $199. Click through for pics and full spec list…
