New Contour ROAM2 and Contour SD Card Information

The action cam market continues to expand with the latest offering from the propellerheads at Contour, the Contour ROAM2

With significant upgrades over the original ROAM, the ROAM2 boasts a locking "instant-on" switch making it the most simplistic action cam out there, perfect for concentrating on the task while still capturing amazing video. Capable of shooting 60fps at 720p, it lends itself well to fast-paced action and delivers a consistently smooth result.

The ROAM 2 is waterproof without the need for a case, making it one of the most slimline and versatile tools available. The built-in laser level ensures you always have the correct angle, while the long battery life keeps you conquering earth, sea and sky longer than ever before.

It comes in stylish black as well as red and blue, a first for the Contour series. Priced to compete with the big guns, it is set to grab its market share and run with it so don't get left behind.



IMPORTANT SD CARD INFORMATION:

Some users have reported problems with some MicroSD cards in Contour devices. Refer to this information as it may just help you out:





ContourROAM2
You can use any* microSDHC card up to 32GB in size between Class 2 and Class 10 in speed.  Be sure that you format microSD cards using the in-camera method  for this model of camera.

ContourGPS, Contour+, ContourROAM, and Contour+2
You can use any* microSD or microSDHC card up to 32GB in size and up to Class 10 in speed.  Be sure that you format microSD cards using the in-camera method  for each of these models of camera.

ContourHD 1080p
You can use up to a 32GB card in your ContourHD 1080p.  When that camera  was first introduced, 32GB cards were not widely available and that is why the printed manual in the box references 16GB cards.  Since then the microSD card market has expanded and so your camera can use a 32GB card.

However, because the camera was not designed to use a card of that size, the memory card light will alway indicate that the card is full by showing a red light anytime you check the card status.  This is true even when the card is not full.  Other than that, it will function normally.

ContourHD 720p
You can use up to a 16GB card in your ContourHD 720p.

*SanDisk Ultra cards are only compatible with Contour cameras using the latest firmware.

*SHDC-1 microSD cards are not currently compatible with any of the Contour cameras.

Pentaxians Rejoice: Announcing the K5 II and K5 IIs!

They're finally here folks!

The Pentax K5 II and K5 IIs have arrived, and they're shaping up to be the surprise hit DSLR in the lead-up to Christmas 2012. 

Of course, Pentax make a good, solid product and have many decades of photographic engineering prowess behind them, but the addition of the K5II and K5IIs has sent Pentax-loving photographers wild, and reports from our initial buyers indicate it is their best effort yet.

The K5 II updates the K5, and includes improvements over the sensor especially in terms of low-light sensitivity, as well as a significant upgrade to the Full HD video and LCD screen. 

The K5 IIs is essentially the same camera, but following in Nikon's D800/D800E footsteps, the K5 IIs removes the anti-aliasing filter on the sensor for highly detailed, rich image results at high resolution levels. 

The Pentax K-series holds a dear place in many a heart, so perhaps you should check them out for yourself.

Selected RODE Microphones - Now with PluralEyes3!

You already know Sydney-made RØDE microphones and accessories rock, but what the heck is PluralEyes3?

Filmmakers all over the place are utilizing this unique tool to seriously cut down their post-production workloads, not to mention all the frustration that goes with the territory. 

Recording sound via external sources often requires syncing it with the video off the set, and this is quite the task - even a couple of frames difference can have your dialogue out of sync and ruin an otherwise satisfying production. That's where PluralEyes3 comes in - it will perfectly sync the audio for you.

The new PluralEyes for Mac is a standalone application with a new timeline, visual feedback, and 'test & tweak' features for quality control over your production particulars. PluralEyes 3 is up to 20x faster than PluralEyes 2, and can easily prepare your audio/video sync and take the pain out of post-production activities. 

During November and December 2012, DCW in conjunction with RØDE are giving away free copies of PluralEyes3 with purchase of a RODE VideoMic Pro or Stereo VideoMic Pro. Simply purchase and register your 10 year warranty via RODE's website to claim. 

Valued at $199, this is an outstanding saving and adds a whole new depth to your video production kit. Get into it!
