VholdR, the leader for shoot and share wearable video cameras, is introducing ContourHD: The World’s First (and lightest) HD Wearable Camcorder. Now shipping world-wide, ContourHD is the only camcorder Dad will want to wear on the family trips this winter season. The only wearable HD video camera (attach ContourHD to your goggles, helmet, equipment, or vehicle), ContourHD makes it simple to shoot (one button simplicity to record), and even easier to share with your friends online (click to share video software included). This rugged, hands-free video camera will enable millions of dads to put down the traditional camcorder and join the family action, while capturing the entire experience on video.
“ContourHD is the modern family camcorder,” says Marc Barros, VholdR’s CEO. “It enables Dad to ski with the family, capture the entire experience in beautiful HD video, and share it online in seconds.”
Perfected for the outdoor dad, ContourHD is compact (small enough to wear on your goggles); light but armored (weighing 4.3 ounces); and simple to use (single button to record). ContourHD captures the action in crisp High Definition quality video or smooth Standard Definition quality video (captured at 60 frames per second). Its all-in-one design means ContourHD has no wires or separate recorder, but instead captures up to 8 hours of High Definition video to its own internal microSD memory card (compatible with up to a 16GB card).
Plug ContourHD into any computer (USB cable included), use the ContourShare software (Mac/PC compatible) to highlight your favorite parts, and with a single click post your family adventures online. Now every family can capture their vacations from inside the action and share them online in seconds.
2 Video Settings
High Definition: Fill your screen with vivid, widescreen (16:9) action video. With a full 1280×720 (pixels) window and 30 frames per second, your videos will be just how you remember them, big and awesome!
High Action: Ideal for making the fastest adventure sports appear as smooth as butter. Recording standard definition video at 60 frames per second (twice as many frames as TV quality video), you won’t miss any of the action.
Record over 8 Hours of HD Video
ContourHD can record up to 8 hours of HD quality video or 16 hours of SD quality video to an internal microSD memory card (compatible up to a 16GB memory card). Powered by a removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery, this robust camera recharges through a USB cable connected directly to your computer.
Wide Angle Lens
At 135 degrees, the new ContourHD lens strikes the perfect balance in capturing the entire scene without over-distorting the video.
Patent-pending TRailTM Mounts “slide and lock” ContourHD onto a series of different mounts for your goggle, helmet, handlebar, vehicle, or anywhere else you want to mount it. Wear HD video on more than just your head.
One Button Simplicity
ContourHD’s operation couldn’t be simpler using the single oversized record switch (to be operated even with a pair of gloves on) and click to share software.
Two lasers and a 192o rotating lens ensure you line up the shot every time. Turn on the lasers and rotate the front lens until the two laser points are horizontally aligned.
A water-resistant camera for all seasons, its light (4 ounces/116 grams) anodized aluminum body withstands dust, dirt, mud, and snow.
ContourShare™ software (Mac and PC compatible) makes it automatic to import your videos from the camera, clip out the best parts, and share them to VholdR.com.

ContourHD will be available worldwide this holiday season for $279.99 at Amazon.com, REI, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Sports Chalet, and B&H Photo. Or visit www.vholdr.com to find a complete list of retailers.
