Product Details

VholdR ContourHD Wearable Camcorder, Model 1200

Features:

  • 2 Video Settings
    • High Definition: Fill your screen with vivid, widescreen (16;9) action video. With a full 1280x720 (pixels) window and 30 frames per second, your videos will be just how you remember them, big and awesome!
    • High Action: Ideal for making the fastest adventure sports appear as smooth as butter. Recording standard definition video at 60 frames per second (twice as many frames as TV quality video) you won't miss any of the action
  • Beautiful Outdoor Colors
    The image sensor and video processor in this tiny camera were fine-tuned for the changing colors and lighting conditions you'll experience when recording outdoors. The snow will have definition, the lighting will transition when you go through the trees, and the color clarity has been adjusted so that colors will appear as rich as you remember them
  • Capture the Whole Scene
    The wider the angle of your lens the more of the scene you capture. At 135 degrees, the new ContourHD lens strikes the perfect balance in capturing the entire scene without over-distorting the video
  • Record over 8 Hours of Action Video
    As an all-in-one wearable camcorder, ContourHD records to an internal MicroSD memory card to capture up to 8 hours of HD quality video (compatible up to a 16GB Memory Card). Powered by a removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery, this robust camera recharges through a USB cable connected directly to your computer. Now you can throw away your camcorder tapes, wires, and AA batteries
  • With Full Audio
    Capturing the sounds you hear (other than the wind) is a difficult proposition, which is why we upgraded the microphone from the previous VholdR model. We've done our best to help you cut out the wind noise and record the sounds of the action
  • One Button Record
    ContourHD's operation couldn't be simpler, as it features a single oversized record switch that you can use even when you're wearing a pair of gloves. Slide the switch forward to record and slide it back to stop-congratulations, you just made a video! Now you can capture the best scenes right before they happen
  • Easy to Align
    Have you ever seen a camera with lasers? ContourHD uses two of them and a 192o rotating lens to ensure you line up the shot every time. Turn on the lasers and rotate the front lens until the two laser points are horizontally aligned. Congratulations, you just lined up your video
  • Wearable Anywhere
    As the most versatile wearable camcorder we take "wearable" seriously. ContourHD uses our patent-pending TRailTM Mounts to "slide and lock" onto a series of different mounts for your goggles, helmet, handlebars, vehicle, or anywhere else you want to mount it. Wear HD video on more than just your head
  • Armored Body
    A water-resistant camera for all seasons, its light (4 ounces/116 grams) anodized aluminum body withstands dust, dirt, mud, and snow-elements that destroy most electronic gear. It's also shock, vibration and impact resistant
  • Click to Share Online with a Mac and a PC
    As simple as we made recording with ContourHD, we made it even easier to share your HD videos online. Our Easy Edit™ software (Mac and PC compatible) makes it automatic to import your videos from the camera, clip out the best parts, and post them to VholdR.com.

    Get additional mounts. Mounts included are insufficient, there are two double sided sticky tapes and a goggle mount clip. Would be nice if there was a suction cup mount with an expendable rod.

    Held up great in downhill mountain bike crashes and wasn't affected by splashing during gator wrestling, but software included doesn't playback smooth video and still can't get it to play smoothly after following website support instructions.

    Comments about VholdR ContourHD Wearable Camcorder:

    Great Helmet Camera, one of the very best out there on the market for the price. Love the HD format, the video quality is excellent for the size of the unit. Love the rechargeable battery and MicroSD card features. Love the laser alignment feature also . The case is very durable and easy to mount and dismount quickly. Easy to use and very durable, I would highly recommend this unit.

    Cons: Wind noise is very bad starting at very low speeds when moving and is downright irritating when watching the playback! I either add music to the video or turn off the sound all together. I found the software that comes with the unit is "so so" and would recommend another video editing program such as Quicktime Pro for final editing. Other than that, I really like this camera and have been using it every day to record my motorcycle commuting.
