ContourHD Review
The VholdR ContourHD 1080p Wearable Camcorder is a full 1920 x 1080p camcorder for recording all your adventures on land, in the air, on the side of a mountain pretty much wherever you feel the need to explore.

The ContourHD 1080p not only records in 1080p, but also offers up 4 other resolution choices depending on your needs: 1280 x 960p at 30fps, 1280 x 720p at 60fps, 1280 x 720p at 30fps and standard definition 848 x 480 at 60fps.

Record whatever your heart desires with this extremely lightweight and easy to use 5MP camcorder.
All your video is captured to microSD memory cards (2GB card included) up to 16GB for easy flash memory recording and transfer.
When using a 16GB card you can record for up to 8 hours! Considering the built-in lithium-ion battery lasts for 4 hours on a single charge, that’s pretty awesome.

And you’ll capture all your adventures with the fixed focus 135 lens that keeps the entire scene in focus without over-distorting things.
A built-in microphone rounds out your video by capturing the sounds that go along with every adventure.
Ease of use is another hallmark of this wearable camcorder.

Even with gloves on you can start and stop recording with just a touch of the switch. And, because it weighs only 4.3 ounces and is mountable to just about anything, thanks to VholdR’s patent-pending TRail Mount system, you’ll be able to shoot without being distracted or weighed down.
