Real action-cam for sailing Contour HD

Contour HD waterproof helmet cam

I wrote about small-budget wide-angle waterproof camera lately. But there is newcomer – Contour HD. Real helmet-mountable action-cam. Tough and waterproof. It has HD 720 capability to shoot really hi-res material to SD card. No moving parts in the camera, no wires, copes well rough handling. But also no LCD display. I don’t think, its a flaw, camera has 135 degree wide-angle lens.

Most of us don’t have helmets like Alinghi 5 multi-hull test-sailors. But I believe, that windy weathehr can provide nice footage from the action on the sea. Most Contour HD samples right now are from skiing slopes and mountain-bike trails. Why not from the sea?

Pro’s

  • HD image quality
  • tough, waterproof
  • small
  • Mac and Windows PC compatible

Con’s

  • No LCD
  • Microphone is too sensitive to wind
