    Need Contour Roam 1.10 firmware

    Hi,
    Does anyone have a copy of firmware v1.10 for the Contour ROAM camera? I upgraded to v1.11 and the picture looks terrible. Would like to downgrade to 1.10 but I have not been able to find a download anywhere.
    Please help
    Thanks!

    Why not upgrade to the ROAM2 software, v2.16?

    Nah that has the same issue. I dunno what contour did to the latest versions of their firmware but the picture quality is crap. specifically after 1.10

    I've used 1.10 and 1.11 and liked 1.11 better. 2.16 is essentially the same as 1.11, with more options. I don't see any degradation here. Maybe something with your cam?

    my guess, found the contour roam 2 software better image quality.. sharper and colors are less "muddy" I guess would be the right word...

    I can confirm that there's a pretty big difference in image quality between 1.10 and later firmwares. I bought 2 used Roams, one had the v1.11 loaded and I got used to its picture quality and generally soft detail when it gets dark. Then I got the second Roam with v1.10 loaded. What a difference ! I immediately noticed a much sharper image when light gets low (higher ISO in the camera). In v1.11 obviously they tweaked the noise reduction which makes for a cleaner but softer overall image. Too bad my Roam with the v1.11 has better color balance ! But I don't think v1.11 actually fixes color balance, it's just a variation between cameras on the production line. I need to get my hands on that v1.10 firmware to downgrade the other cam...
    If only I could dump the v1.10 firmware off the good cam !
