This is my review of the Contour ROAM3 action camera. Its one of the only sports cameras that are waterproof without any case. Is it worth buying? How good is the video quality? I will try and address all these questions in my following review :
The video quality of the Contour ROAM3 video camera is excellent. This action camera records in Full HD (1080P), and the video quality is adjustable. If you need to record a really long video, you can just switch from 1080P quality to 720P. The camera comes with a 8GB MicroSD memory card but it’s better to buy a 32GB one. You will be able to store much more videos on a MicroSD this big. Memory cards nowadays are really cheap and can be bought really anywhere. I highly recommend checking out the Contour+2 Video Camera (Amazon link) as well. It provides really amazing video quality too.
Most action cameras are waterproof only when used with a waterproof case. Only few of them are actually waterproof without a case, and Contour ROAM3 is one. You can use this video camera underwater and record really cool videos. There is not need to install or remove any cases. Really great ! I was really surprised to discover an action camera in this price range is actually completely waterproof (up to 30 feet). I think that’s one of the main reasons this camera is so popular and widely used.
The build quality of iON Contour ROAM3 is very good. This camera is very durable like all other cameras made by iON. This company really known how to make excellent action cameras.
The battery of the Contour ROAM3 sports camera is built-in and can bot be changed or replaced. As long as you properly charge it – it should work perfectly for many years. It provides about an hour of recording time at the highest recording quality, which is really good ! You can archive much longer recording times after setupin lower quality recording. But again, an hour+ of recording time is more than enough for most people.
Value For Money
Contour ROAM 3 provides great video quality, well built and it’s waterproof up to 30 feet. You will really have a hard time finding a similar camera. In my opinion this camera provides great value for the money.
Package And Accessories
Contour ROAM 3 comes with pretty much anything you need to get started. Just charge it, plug in the MicroSD memory card and that’s it ! After recording videos, you can easily connect it to your PC using a simple USB cable and transfer the files.
