All of the people out there that like to do crazy sports or extreme sports and want to be able to record their antics in a first person view need some sort of camcorder. The best type of camera is something small and rugged that can survive the inevitable drop or crash. A new camcorder has turned up called the Contour+ that should work for just about anyone.

The Contour+ sells for $499.99 (USD) and comes with the camera, 2GB SD card, USB, HDMI cable and three different mounts for securing the camera to stuff. The camera supports full 1080p resolution video at 30fps, and 720p at up to 60fps. It also has a super wide-angle lens that can be easy adjusted by turning a ring around the end of the lens up to 170-degrees.

The camera also streams video to Bluetooth devices with an app available for the iPhone and Android smartphones. That will let you see what you are recording while you are out and about without having to wait until you get home and just hope you got the shot. The camera also has a GPS receiver to track your speed and elevation and record that data as you go.
