Oh definitely, you can slow it down with final cut pro by itself at 1/2 speed with 60fps no problem. But if you're looking to go slower than 1/4 speed you'd need either a program like Twixtor or 240fps. I'll have to get some shots and post them for reference.

Yeah fair enough, 60 fps will do 1/2 speed with no need for interpolation... Technically 120 fps should be able to do 1/4 speed with no interpolation too. 240 fps would be good for 1/8th speed and so on.

This is one of the things that bugs me about DSLRs. I really want to upgrade my DSLR to a full frame Canon 5D mark II, but it only shoots in 30 fps modes. I was thinking about renting a proper slow mo camera for a day at the hill, the rest of the stuff I want to catch will be fine at 60 fps.

I like to watch it though, I wish I would of had one last week when I was ripping through the trees and hit a stump. That stopped me pretty quick, haha.

Thanks. I can get a Roam 1 for CAD$179 or a 2 for 230. Will have to get the waterproof case anyway as I'll be taking it diving as well. Is it hard to hack the Roam to 720 60fps?

You in Canada? Those prices are high... Even in Canada we can get them cheaper.

The hack is simple if you're even slightly computer inclined.

1) Put an SD card in the camera and turn it on at least once
2) Get a copy of the old firmware (I've got it) and put it on the SD card
3) open up a txt file on the SD card and change something from "N'" to "Y"
4) Disconnect camera and push status button
5) Reconnect camera and change another part of the text file from "C" to "D"
6) Disconnect camera and push status button

It takes a total of about a minute to do everything. Easily reversible by putting the current firmware back on...

For what it's worth, here's a little video I just made of some snorkelling I did last summer. This was in 960p 30 fps... First time I've ever had the camera underwater. It feels weird swimming around with the thing in your hand but it did fine, no issues.

Then I left it out in the rain all night. Again no issues...

Im not going to post this on CL or the buy sell forum, nor am I going to ship anything because im just to lazy and i dont care, but i thought i let some people in on some deals that pass by me from time to time to you guys.

If you want a brand new Contour + 2 still in its original packaging with all it comes with for $300 let me know. You would need to pick it up from me downtown Vancouver.

First come first serve...

I'm also finding that there are missing videos on my +2. I took 9 full run videos and at least 7-10 short 15-30 shots on the lift but only 3 are showing on the camera when I open storyteller.

Anyone else having an issue with this?

Strange....are you running a Mac? If so how many do you see in iphone when you plug it in? Can you stick the SD in your comp direct or via a USB attachment?
