VholdR ContourHD upgraded to 1080p

Action sports cam maker VholdR on Tuesday revamped its ContourHD helmet camera with its first major upgrade. The new variant of the ruggedized unit jumps from 720p to 1080p and now shoots in more modes, such as at 4:3 ratio 960p or at 60 frames per second in 720p. A particularly wide-angle, 135-degree lens gives it a better view of the environment, and dual sighting lasers help owners compose the shot.

Owners can tune the input before the shot and adjust image qualities like contrast, exposure and metering as well as adjust the microphone gain to compensate for ambient sounds. Its removable but custom battery lasts for about three hours on a charge.

As part of its efforts, VholdR has also launched a video website that takes and plays 1080p videos as well as bundled software for editing on Macs and Windows PCs. The camera in question should cost $330 and will ship before the holidays.
