Introduction

When we reviewed the original Contour+ last year, adventure cams were a relatively new phenomenon. Now they're everywhere, and, by some accounts, they're the fastest growing camcorder market in the US. Enter the Contour+2, Contour's new flagship camcorder that is both better and cheaper than its predecessor. It still costs $399, which is more than you'll pay for most GoPro adventure cams, but that price includes a waterproof case, a couple of adhesive mounts, a 4GB memory card, and a robust camcorder that is capable of doing some really cool stuff.
