Engadget Summary

Contour may be a big name in the compact sports camera market, but their ContourROAM2 doesn't have what it takes to separate itself from the pack. The ContourROAM2 managed to do fairly well when it came to video recording, with Digital Trends saying the quality is "sufficient for online use" and CNET finding that "if your main need is to share clips online, the results are definitely pleasing, with nice color and detail." Like most sport cameras, the ContourROAM2 struggled with audio, with PC World Australia saying that "any kind of speed above about 30-40km/h, wind noise overwhelms the camera’s internal mic." In the end, the ContourROAM2 is just another action camera, and as Digital Camera Review says, it "would be a convenient camera for anyone who wants to film their adventures, but is not looking for professional quality in the videos."
