We purchased a Contour+ camera last summer and have since used it on around half a dozen occasions. Preparing for the 2013 riding season, we wanted to do some testing some two weeks ago, for the first time since September. Sadly, the power switch on the camera's back door ceased to function. In fact, have been concerned about this happening since our first two days with the camera last summer. Already when filming some footage on the Bear's Path last July, we found the power switch quite flimsy, ofter requiring several attempts to work. Now, planning to use our Contour+ in the beginning of May, we were actually quite lucky that the switch died already now. Thankfully, after inspecting the camera Evans Cycles decided to exchange it to its successor Contour 2+. To our knowledge, capture quality of Contour 2+ shouldn't differ from that of Contour+. However, we are very keen on the instant record slider of Contour 2+. As far as we have understood, there isn't anymore a need to press a separate, cumbersome power button every time when the camera goes to a stand-by mode. We also hope that construction of the back door of Contour 2+ is more confidence inspiring that that of its predecessor.
