Contour's excellent entry-level action cam gets better with the Roam3

 

A little more than a year ago, action-cam maker Contour closed its doors. Though it had a couple of the best cameras around in the Roam2 and Contour+2, it couldn't keep up with the marketing muscle of GoPro or the onslaught of less-expensive competitors.

The Contour Roam3 is waterproof down to 30 feet (10m) without a housing; it has a rotating lens with laser alignment so your video is straight; it has Contour's Trail mount as well as a standard tripod mount; and the big slider gets you recording...

Though its battery can last up to 3.5 hours, it's not removable and a full charge takes about 3 hours. It has no screen or option for a screen, and without Wi-Fi or Bluetooth you can't wirelessly preview or view video on a mobile device

All the features that make Contour's action cams excellent are here in its entry-level Roam3. While it's not loaded with extras, it's one of the best you'll find for its price.
