The Bottom Line While not as rugged as its competition, the ContourHD features video quality and user-friendliness that is far better than any other helmet cam that we've tested. The Kodak Playsport is an excellent minicamcorder that can take some rough treatment and capture solid HD video. The ContourRoam finally matches the rugged construction and ultrawide field of view of the competition, while still excelling as a sports camera with its ease of use and low price. The Contour+2 combines the best features of the entire Contour camera line in one simple, powerful flagship model.
