Previewing The Contour Roam 2 Video Camera

No fishing here for the past couple of weeks due to heavy rains just about everyday. Rivers are out of their banks and the lakes are 2 to 3 feet above full pool. Reading, watching Contour Roam 2 videos and thinking about fishing has consumed most of my time during this monsoon period . I decided to purchase the camera yesterday. I’m looking forward to putting it to good use in the coming weeks. I won’t go into the buying and returning the GoPro I thought I wanted to use. I'll just say the Contour is leaps and bounds ahead of the GoPro when being used as a helmet camera, because of its low profile. I can actually use the Contour attached to one of my caps, without movement. LET THE RAIN STOP!!


Side Note: This is my second Roam 2 Contour I’ve purchased. I decided in 2015 I wanted to film some of my fishing trips so the Contour was my choice of cameras then as it is now. My nephew is enjoying using my first camera.

I feel this is a better camera than I had, the sound quality should be better. Thanks for the comment

This camera is very easy to use, it can be attached to your cap. Once I film a video I will include the image of the cap and camera and explain how I attached it to the cap. Thanks for the comment

Looking forward to learning how the new camera works for you, Bill. As for the rain, wow, I thought WE were getting lots of it in the Northeast (we are) but it sounds like you guys are really getting drenched. Yeah let's hope for moderation and a continuation of good fishing weather.

Hey Bill, video some of that rain and send it to Colorado. Man, we're dry!

Got the camera the other day and had problems with the camera staying charged; I sent it back. I ordered another one so no filming until next week. Thanks for the comment

The sun is shinning here today so hopefully an easterly breeze will blow some moisture your way. thanks for the comment

I could see you using this type camera on some of your outings. It is compact and low profile and easy to used. I am hoping for a break in the rain so I can wet a line in the coming days. Thanks for the comment
