Expanding the range and versatility of their exceptional hands-free camera line, today Contour launches the latest addition to the family, the Roam. The new gadget maintains many of the great features of previous Contour models while adding its own twist. At the top of the list, the Roam has the ability to film underwater up to one meter. Also sporting a 170-degree wide-angle lens, it rotates and, when using the built in laser level, guarantees a perfectly-leveled shot. The Roam is now the most affordable in the Contour line-up—an achievement made possible without shedding too many features from its siblings.

The Roam includes an "Instant On-Record" switch, a single toggle that powers up and starts recording, eliminating stress about whether or not you're rolling. Just over five ounces, the feature-packed device can record 1080p, 960p and 720p video all at 30 frames per second. As with the brand's other products, the camera has a multitude of mounts, from windshield to helmet, to keep you capturing your adventures in any conditions.

The Roam sells from Contour's online store for $200.
