The VholdR ContourHD 1080p Wearable Camera is a full 1920 x 1080p camcorder for recording all your adventures on land, in the air, on the side of a mountain—pretty much wherever you feel the need to explore. Simply attach the VholdR ContourHD to the side of your helmet, glasses, or headband and you’re ready to record all your action feats. Record whatever your heart desires with this extremely lightweight and easy to use 5MP camcorder.

The VholdR ContourHD 1080p not only records in 1080p, but also offers up 4 other resolution choices depending on your needs: 1280 x 960p at 30fps, 1280 x 720p at 60fps, 1280 x 720p at 30fps and standard definition 848 x 480 at 60fps. All your video is captured to microSD memory cards (2GB card included) up to 16GB for easy flash memory recording and transfer. When using a 16GB card you can record for up to 8 hours! Considering the built-in lithium-ion battery lasts for 4 hours on a single charge, that's pretty awesome.

The VholdR ContourHD 1080p Wearable Camera allows you to capture all your adventures with the fixed focus 135° lens that keeps the entire scene in focus without over-distorting things. A built-in microphone rounds out your video by capturing the sounds that go along with every adventure. Ease of use is another hallmark of this wearable camcorder. Even with gloves on you can start and stop recording with just a touch of the switch. And, because it weighs only 129g and is mountable to just about anything, thanks to VholdR's patent-pending TRail Mount system, you'll be able to shoot without being distracted or weighed down. In addition, dual lasers, along with the 180° rotating lens ensure that your video lines up each and every time.


The VholdR ContourHD 1080p Wearable Camera is equipped with numerous features and upgrades to ensure that outdoor enthusiasts and adventure-seekers capture the best footage in HD. However, there are some limitations. As with most camcorders, battery life is an issue; the ContourHD1080p is no exception. The camcorder features a rechargeable lithium ion battery and testing revealed that the Contour HD only had approximately two hours of battery life. To avoid missing any shot, backup batteries are a great idea.

Great Gift For
The VholdR ContourHD 1080p Full HD Wearable Camera is great for extreme sport enthusiast, rock climbers, trail runners, or just about anyone who wants to record HD video hands free.

The VholdR ContourHD 1080p Full HD Wearable Camera is selling for $329.99 on Amazon.com.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
