The Contour Roam3 is waterproof down to 30 feet (10m) without lodging; it has a turning focal point with laser arrangement so your video is straight; it has Contour’s Trail mount and also a standard tripod mount, and the enormous slider makes you record without fiddling with catches.
In spite of the fact that its battery can last up to 3.5 hours, it’s not removable and a full charge takes around 3 hours. It has no screen or choice for a screen, and without Wi-Fi or Bluetooth you can’t remotely review or view the video on a cell phone
Structure and highlights
The focal point turns 270 degrees (180 degrees to one side and 90 degrees to one side), which gives you all the more situating choices and no compelling reason to disturb settings or flip the video with altering programming.
The Status secure likewise lights a few LEDs over the camera to give you a harsh thought of the rest of the battery power and capacity sum. This catch presently fills in as a shade discharge for snapping off photographs, as well. Simply press and hold the catch for a couple of moments and it will switch on the camera, at that point squeeze it again to snap a photo. The photographs have a 4:3 perspective proportion, however, which implies you’ll need to edit them in the event that you need to drop them in with your recordings and match their 16:9 viewpoint proportions.
The Roam3 gives both of you alternatives for mounting: You can utilize Contour’s sliding rail mounts (otherwise known as Trails) or exploit the tripod mount in the base. Included with the camera is a level cement rail mount and also one that pivots and secures. The last is pleasant to use over a head protector, giving you a chance to shoot before you and after that, you can rapidly pivot it to catch behind you or off to the sides.
At the back is a slide-up entryway that covers the microSDHC card space (cards up to 32GB are upheld; an 8GB card is incorporated), Mini-USB port, and reset and organization catches. What you may see missing is a removable battery. While its battery life is great at up to 3.5 hours, you have to charge it for about that long to finish it off once more.
Video and photograph quality
1080p video is recorded at a variable piece rate somewhere in the range of 14 and 16Mbps, which is useful at its cost range, and it results in preferred detail over you’d get from lower-end models.
Sound quality is OK and sounds somewhat muted, likely on account of the camera’s waterproofing. Fundamentally, it’s sufficient to record somebody talking at a typical volume several feet from the camera. I thought that it was taken care of wind commotion sensibly well, yet risks are you will need to toss some music over the video.
The Contour Roam3 is a fantastic activity cam on the off chance that you would prefer not to stress over lodgings and can live without highlights like Wi-Fi or the capacity to review what you’re going to shoot. The video quality is useful at its cost, yet on the off chance that you require the best video, you’ll need to spend more cash.
