Pat Palmerwrote a review of Contour Roam Camera on January 13, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it several times
The Contour Roam takes great quality video, and is ridiculously easy to operate. It lacks the features of the newer models like bluetooth connectivity and higher frame rates, but the $100 or more price difference more than makes up for the slight inconvenience of not being able to change settings on the fly.
I suspect this model will be discontinued in favor of the newer models. That's a shame, because it's the best entry-level action camera on the market.
