You might remember a while back when I reviewed the ContourHD camera, a tiny, water-resistant 1080p camera for sticking to your bike frame, helmet, car, whatever. I thought it was pretty great, with the usual caveats for small camcorders, but one major limiting factor was that you couldn’t… well, you couldn’t tell where you were pointing the thing. I mean, it had handy laser guides to keep it level, and it’s reasonably wide-angle, but there was still some estimation in framing. Switching video modes and such was also less than convenient.
No longer: the latest version of the Contour camcorder connects to your phone via Bluetooth, allowing you to see your shot live, replay stuff instantly, change settings, and more. This is good.
