ContourHD Plus rumor
If you're the type who likes to risk life and limb in pursuit of pleasure, then you know the best way to document your exploits is with a little helmet cam action. Bike Rumor is reporting that Contour, one the leaders in this (admittedly niche) field, will soon be releasing a new POV shooter called the Contour Plus. The site came across some Giant pro cyclers testing the device, who claim the Plus will improve on the ContourGPS by adding an HDMI-out port, boosting image quality, and widening the viewing angle from 140 degrees to 170. And, for those who really like to live dangerously, the Plus will supposedly pack a Bluetooth radio so you can stare at the iPhone viewfinder app while hurtling down a snow-covered slope or through an obstacle-riddled bike path. Of course, this is all unofficial at the moment, but the "little birdy" whispering in Bike Rumor's ear said the updated cam will land in the next month or two. One more blurry shot after the break.

hopefully, by image quality they mean exposure issues. really wish they could forego the bluetooth and gps and just make a better camera.
although i'm guessing the bluetooth app will enable us to change exposure setting easier. too bad it won't install a filter.

170* is a bonus too... seen a lot of contour stuff that's not quite wide enough...40-14

If no loop recording mode, still no use to me....And the greatest ice must crumble when it's flower's time to grow.

Better optics and hardware image stabilization would get my money.
