Nifty The world’s first HD wearable camcorder: VholdR’s ContourHD. It’s got lasers too–two of them–to line up your video: turn on the lasers, rotate the lens until two laser points are horizontally aligned. The ContourHD uses TRail Mounts to connect to just about anything: goggles, helmet, handlebars, vehicle, etc. With all of the action that this HD camcorder is going to see the folks at VholdR incorporated a new microphone that reduces wind noise. Good move.

You can record 60 minutes of 720p HD with 2GB (included). Maxed out at 16GB you can record 8 hours of crazy action footage. Of course the Lithium Ion battery (thank goodnes it’s removable) will run out in about 2 hours. Make sure to pack a few more.

Tough & Fast The ContourHD’s body is made of anodized aluminum and tough. It is water, shock, vibration and impact resistent. The HD camcorder boots up in under 5 seconds and has fast transfer speeds: “Transferring gigabytes of videos only takes a few minutes.”
