Contour Roam 3

As most of you know i love boring you lot with my bike video's. i have had all different brands of action camera's but for a bike mounted camera its very hard not to go past the contour roam 3.

For Starters it only $199 to buy and it's built like a tank, Piss easy to use even ask TAG as it fixed his gopro's charging problem. The contour for a start is point the camera line it up rotate the lens so its straight or use the cool laser level to square it up slide the switch on and its recording. Yes it is not as good as a gopro 4 black or Silver but is better than the Hero, The contour is more aero dynamic to mount on your helmet if you victorians are game but in saying that i wore my contour to PI and back and not a issue to be had

it does 1080P at 30fps or 720p at 60 fps and 120 fps at some wierd 4:3 resolution but hey gopro shoots 4k at a very useful 15FPS ( thats sarcasm for you lot who struggle with FPS ) can shoot 5mp stills is water proof to 10 meters without a case, battery last 3.5 hours or a round trip of the bonang with a 32g card and is absolute piss easy to use even TAG can use it successfully and remembers its only $199

I picked up a Roam 3 up yesterday in canberra as one of my GoPros went to the sky, but it has had the piss flogged out of it

So if you want a awesome little action camera that isnt bloody fiddley to use the Roam 3 is the go ... not the gopro more like the goroam
