The new Contour+2 action cam is available now.  The new camera features iOS integration, allowing you to start/stop the recording or adjust camera settings from your iPhone/iPad.  It ships will a waterproof case that lets you take the camera down to 197′ underwater.

The Contour+2 captures full HD at 24p/30p – and will even capture 854 x 480p video at 120fps; however, that’s still a far cry from Sony’s new action cams that will capture 720p HD video as 120 fps.  That said, Contour cameras’ functionality and solid GPS features (in the new Contour+2) offer a lot of value in a somewhat unique package.

You can find the new Contour+2 cameras now available here at B&H Photo.
