We’ve featured several Point Of View (POV) wearable video cameras recently including the popular GoPro HD HERO2 Video Camera. Here’s another great camcorder to consider. The ContourROAM 1600 Point Of View Wearable Camcorder is a super affordable POV wearable camcorder that’s perfect for capturing all of your outdoor experiences and adventures.
The ContourROAM 1600 Point Of View Wearable Camcorder couldn’t be easier to operate. With the convenient one-step recording feature, all you have to do is just slide the record switch and you’re immediately capturing gorgeous HD video.
The concept of a Point Of View (POV) camera is the ability to capture video from the angle and perspective looking through your eyes as you experience some action or activity. In order to accomplish the POV camera perspective, you typically wear the camcorder in a manner that doesn’t interfere with your activity.
For example, these POV cameras are often mounted on your helmet. In other words, let’s say you’re skydiving. Rather than have someone else shoot the video (typically another skydiver jumping along side of you), where you appear as the subject in the frame of reference, the POV video captures what you see as you’re skydiving (so you don’t actually appear in the video frame of reference, just the scene that you’re viewing through your own eyes).
The ContourROAM 1600 POV Camcorder captures the scene you’re viewing with a 170º super wide-angle lens. Cameras with a narrower field of view will easily miss the full panorama and peripheral areas of the shot, unable to capture the full excitement and breathtaking impact of the scene. And the ContourROAM is designed with advanced technology that automatically adjusts exposure and white balance, producing stunningly sharp and beautiful video with the touch of a button.
The camera has three HD video resolutions; 720p, 960p and 1080p. You can also shoot 5 megapixel still images when you want to capture those great moments as a photograph.
In addition, the ContourROAM comes with a waterproof case that enables shooting stunning and clear action video underwater. The camera is waterproof up to one meter.
You can capture up to 8 hours of 1080p video and 12 hours of 720p video on a 32GB MicroSD card (the 32GB SD card is sold separately).

Today’s world is filled gadgets and items of multiple functions. Take the evolution of audio gadgets for example; we began with the trusty walkman that repeatedly plays the Back Street Boys cassette tape. Then when the music industry began producing their music in CDs, we evolved to the CD player. But then we found that it was too bulky and we began to store our music digitally in the MP3 which doubles as a camcorder.
The latest invention in camcorders would have to be the Audiophile’s HD Camcorder. This five inch long gadget not only records audio sounds but also videos in high definition; which is something the MP3 is unable to do. Fitting snugly into your pockets, this camcorder has dual condenser microphones that re-creates the sounds you record with higher fidelity that those of the commercial CDs.
The Audiophile’s HD Camcorder is also brilliant in capturing videos of live performance. The camera found at the back of the gadget has 5.3 megapixels including a four times zoom function. With its two inch color LCD screen, you are able to capture wider angles. Besides that, it has a LCD audio monitor that allows you to monitor both video and sound at the same time. The Audiophile’s HD Camcorder stores its videos in a 32 GB SD or SDHC card. This means that you are able to take a video up to four hours long.
Transferring your audio or video records are as simple as plugging the Audiophile’s HD Camcorder to a computer via a USB cable that comes together with the purchase of the Audiophile’s HD Camcorder. It is compatible on both Windows and Mac PC.
