EAA Witness Steel 9mm Review (HD)


ContourROAM2

There are a number of action cams on the market.  GoPro would be the biggest name in the game, but Contour is making its mark.  Contour is a Northwest company based in Seattle, WA.  While GoPro is the best know name in this market, I feel Contour is better suited to shooting sports.



Contour describes it as a dead simple action video.  I would have to agree.  The simple locking instant on record switch works great.  Just slide it forward and it starts filming.


Contour ROAM 2 Features and Specs:

  • Red, blue, green, and black color options
  • Locking Instant On-Record switch
  • Compatible with all Contour camera mounts
  • 3.5 Hour Battery Life
  • 270° rotating lens
  • 170° Wide Angle Lens
  • 32GB microSD Compatible
  • 4GB microSD Memory Card Included
  • Waterproof to one meter
  • Built-in Tripod (1/4" - 20) Mount
  • Laser Alignment
  • USB Connection
  • Full HD Mode - 1920 x 1080 @ 30/25fps
  • Tall HD Mode - 1280 x 960 @ 30/25fps
  • Action HD Mode - 1280 x 720 @ 60/30/25fps
  • Photo Mode: Every 1, 3, 5, 10, 30, or 60 seconds
  • 5MP Sensor
  • Codec - H.264/AAC / File Type - MOV
  • AAC Audio Compression

The Roam2 is supplied with a 4GB microSD card.  If you purchase a 32GB card, you can record up to 3.5 hours.  It also has long battery life and is charged via the supplied USB cord.  

The one thing that I feel makes the Roam2 lend itself so well to shooting sports is its low profile.  It mounts much cleaner on a gun than the GoPro.  Contour also sells its own picatinny mount.


Other companies also offer picatinny mounts, which I have not used as of yet.  The Contour mount worked flawlessly for us.  It can be a little tough getting the camera off & on the mount, but it worked great.  The camera stayed in place & never came loose.



At $199 it's priced fair and is feature packed.  Mounts are also available to attache the camera to helmets, hats or your wrist.

I stopped by Barnes & Noble this evening.  Decided to walk back to the magazine section, & what did I find?   A brand new gun publication: WORLD OF FIREPOWER.  
 
 
 
 
If your a fan (or were a fan) of Recoil, check it out.  Same size & quality of paper. 
 
 
The cover says "GEAR*SPORT*SELF-DEFENSE*MILITARY*LAW ENFORCEMENT"
Yes they seem to have it covered. 
 
 
Article titles 
"Threat stopper" the top 10 self defense ammo. 
"Powerhouse" on the Benelli M4
"Shotguns The best in home defense"
"Solid Performers 10 Fantastic firearms for home defense"

They have a gear section too.  Theres a bunch more, but I don't want to ruin the surprise.
