Brand new? That's excellent...

I just bought a brand new original Roam from futureshop.ca for $99 Sold mine used for $150 so I made $50 and have a brand new camera!

Now to look into this hacked firmware...

You had the strap on right? Hope you didn't lose the camera!

There's a 60fps hack for the ContourROAM, and I've used it, but the audio quality is terrible. It's effectively a really old firmware version and it means the audio (which was fixed in later firmware) suffers greatly. Definitely makes a visual difference, though!

I took my Countour+ 2 out for the first time today. The first thing I noticed when watching the videos is that it felt so much faster while I was doing it compared to watching the video. I am almost embarrassed to post it to youtube it looks so slow...lol

Poutanen, what is this hacked firmware you speak of?

I wish there was a way of hacking it in the newer firmware... On the other hand I don't really need to hear my wind noise and heavy breathing much anyway. I'll try this with my new (old) Roam and see what it's like at 60 FPS. I'm also not a big fan of the wide angle lens common to action cams. I'm debating about changing it out for a 90 deg lens.

Stupid question but do they make a magnet mount to attach on the outside of a car like on the side fender?

I can see some creative uses for that with my Subaru buddies.
