GoPro and Contour hit it out
Only a few weeks ago Contour released their latest full HD sports action video camera, the Contour ROAM. It was a top secret product release of their great new camera with many additional features giving them the edge of the GoPro HD HERO. Although Contour already had some higher end cameras, being the ContourGPS and Contour+, this still left us wondering, what would GoPro come up with to counter Contour’s release.
The GoPro HD HERO has been on the market for quite some time and has become the household name in sports action cameras. Although there are plenty of other brands competing in this space, Contour is the only name brand that has even come close to taking some of their slice of the pie.
GoPro released their counter punch this week, with their release of the GoPro HD HERO2, along with the announcement of their pending release of the GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac. Two revolutionary new products with awesome features, smashing the GoPro competitors out of the ball park, well for now anyway.
Next week once stock arrives, we will be reviewing the GoPro HD HERO2, putting it through its paces and working out whether all of the new features are what they are cracked up to be.
