ContourのContour+2は、おそらく市場で一番影響力のあるアクションビデオカメラだ。ソニーGoProは言葉を返すだろうが。とはいえ、スキーシーズンに自分の滑りをカメラに収めるためなら400ドル出そうと思う消費者ばかりではないことは Contour も心得ている。そこで Contourは、199USドルのモデル ContourROAM2 を発表した。
ContourROAM2 は、1080p / 30fps と 720p / 60fpsのHD動画を付属の4GB micro SDカードに保存できる。また初代の ContourROAMと同様に、防水ケースなしで水深1mまで動画撮影ができ、270度回転レンズとレーザーポインタも搭載する。ROAM2ではさらに撮影時の画質が改善したほか、ブラック、レッド、ブルー、グリーンのからバリエーションを用意する。

グリーンのみ、年末まで 限定販売。そのほかのカラーはBest Buy やその他の小売店で10月21日発売。
