    Contour Plus worth $500?

    I bought the Contour HD 1080 and returned it soon after.

    The video quality wasn't great and it was difficult getting the right angle without the view finder. Plus the mic was horrible and lots of wind noise.

    The Contour is not cheap at $500 and was wondering if it's a decent upgrade from the HD 1080 and if it's worth it.

    Contour+

    The Contour+ is definitely a big step up from the Contour 1080p. The video quality is significantly better and the 170 degree lens is a welcome change. Add in the GPS and bluetooth capability along with features like HDMI out and mic input and you've got a camera that packs some serious punch. Is the Contour+ worth $500 though? Value is in the eye (or wallet) of the beholder, so it's a bit hard to say. I'll drop you a PM with some price options that might make the decision a bit easier.
