Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Like most of the other video cameras of a comparable age and spec to the ContourRoam, the ContourRoam does not have an interchangeable lens.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with an interchangeable lens and we think the Panasonic HS900, or the Canon EOS C300 (£5,999.00) is also worth considering.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have a built-in projector to this camcorder and we think the Sony HDR-PJ530, or the Aiptek ProjectorCam C25 (£197.17) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

With a maximum memory card size of 32 gigabytes, the ContourRoam has a relatively typical maximum memory card size compared to most of the other medium total megapixels video cameras that have been available for a similar time to the ContourRoam.

We compared this camcorder to all the other 32GB maximum memory card size camcorders and we think the Contour Design Contour+ (£74.95) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a video camera with a larger maximum memory card size then you might want to look at the GZ-GX1 (64GB), or the GZ-VX715 (£145.99) (64GB) both from JVC or the Canon Legria HF S30 (64GB) which also has a higher rating.
