Contour returns to the action camera market with some familiar gear

by John_A

Contour +2 action camera

Contour quietly shut down last year, leaving outdoor explorers little choice but to pick up action cameras from GoPro and other rivals. The company found new ownership during that downtime, however, and it’s back in business this week with a renewed sense of purpose. For now, the firm is only selling the cameras it had before the lights went out. You can buy the entry-level ROAM2 camera for $200, while the flagship Contour+2 is available for $300. The firm won’t lean on its past glories for long, mind you — it’s promising new models later this year. It’s too early to say whether Contour can reclaim its place in the point-of-view camera industry that it helped create, but it’s good to see renewed competition in a field where the choices have been rapidly shrinking.
