Contour reopening, sort of!

Last August, One of the few decent cameras for mounting to a mask was discontinued, alongside the entire company producing them.

Apparently, another company has purchased most all of its assets and plans on recovering the product lines!!

From contour's website:
Contour Cameras was a pioneer and consistently a leader in the the Point of View Camera market for ten years. Today, we are proud to manufacture a camera that enables modern day explorers, sportsmen and women, adventurers, professionals and amateurs to tell their video story of action, adventure and travel.

Contourís predecessor grew from two people to one of the fastest growing companies in the US, making #7 on the Inc. 500 in 2011. When the predecessor ran into trouble and closed its doors in August of this year, Clarke Capital purchased most of its assets from a court-appointed receiver.

The aim is clear, to create a world-class company to support this world-class product, to recover Contour's position as the leading Action Camera on the market and then to continue to innovate and bring to market the world's best action camera.

I typically carry one extra tube and give them 1 ball from it.

I'm an *** like that.

Had an old contour HD needing firmware upgrade.

Their customer service is up and running already, and their facebook page is getting pretty active! Woot woot!

This is great news. I have wanted a Contour for some time for the similar reasons you all do. I fight in the SCA and a GoPro would just SUCK for that as well. I need something that fit close enough to the side of a helmet that I could bolt a metal cup over it for protection and not have it look like an enormous tumor.
