ContourROAM HD Video Camera

For an affordable, easy-to-use video camera with loads of features in an astoundingly small package, try the ContourROAM. This ultra-compact, streamlined featherweight (5.1 oz.) straps to head, helmet, handlebars, and more with a variety of optional mounts—including a waterproof case for full-immersion water sports. Despite its diminutive size, this camera can take a beating—we ran it hard through whitewater rafting, downhill biking, ziplining, horseback riding, and skiing—and still produce high-definition, wide-angle video every time. The large, rubberized record switch is easy to activate with gloves on, and a dual laser helps you center and level the camera. Exposure and white balance adjust automatically; three resolution options allow plenty of flexibility with quality and run time. A built-in microphone lets you incorporate ambient audio into your film. And when you’re all done, Contour’s free Storyteller App imports and helps you assemble your video footage and upload it to Contour’s website, with an easy export to Facebook. Which is nice, because the only thing better than having an awesome adventure is sharing it with your friends. $200;
