Riders who love to capture their adventures on camera can now try the Countour HD Helmet Camera, the latest helmet camera offered by VholdR.
Its design uses the same framework of its predecessor but with a few modifications to the design itself. High definition capability and a wide-angle lens option have been added to the updated recording device, resulting in crisp, 135 degree field view footage.
Like a cellphone, this unit also uses a rechargeable cell-phone style lithium ion battery pack. The whole unit is aided by two rotating lens mounted to a rotating bezel in on the front of the camera.
When using, attach the camera on your helmet or handlebar, then square up its two lasers with the horizon. Once you’ve got it dialed in, flip the big, easy-to-use magnetic switch to begin recording.
This camera can record up to a 16:9 aspect ratio and 30 frames per second, resulting in a 1280×720 pixel footage. This camera also has a High Action option that can record as fast as 60 frames per second. HD is sacrificed at this rate, however.
The camera comes with a the mounts to get you started at $300.
