How To Repair A Contour Action Camera Switch!

I rotate several Contour Action Video Cameras when i’m out in the field fishing day or night if it’s for above or below water usage. My Roam#3 from 2015 has a near frozen switch & is getting impossible to use. So after i contacted Contour Cameras Mr Daniel T authorized a replace unit for me to use & a new R3 switch to try to repair my original unit.

The new unit works extremely well & today i replaced the old switch so i thought filming the repair might help others. I use my Contours for everything from bowling to fishing day & night. Also underwater for Catch & Release segments. Currently the Roam#3 is their latest unit. Latter this year the new Contour#4 will be available.

All my posted videos & many of the images that i use are from the Contours. I like the light weight & ease of operation when using these units. It’s all personal preference.

Contour Action Cameras For My Fishing Videos!

Since i started making fishing videos i’ve always used Contour Action Cameras. These light-weight easy to use units were highly recommended by fellow YouTube creator Joe Olivas of WWJ “Whipping With Joe” of Kauai. For years i’ve been asked if i use GoPros or other outdoor action camera brands and how i rig them to make my videos.

I’ll show how i’ve adapted these units to be used day or night above & below the water. I use a combination of Contour’s Roam 2 & 3 for my filming needs. Latter this year the new Contour 4 will be released. So Daniel T of Contour sent me a few new additional Roam 3 units to help me keep filming with additional switches to upgrade my older units.

To properly use these units for my fishing videos i do need the following accessories to help make this happen-
Neutral Density Filter (day shooting)
Contour Headband
Extra micro sd cards (class 10 up to 32gb)
Selfie stick (for C&R’s)
Headlamp(s) for night usage
Filming tripod (if needed)

Contour’s Roams are extremely light weight and very easy to use. A popular unit for skiers & bikers to hunters & explorers. To set the internals (ie Video, Audio, Lighting & Lights) you need to first download Contour’s STORY TELLER Version 3.6.1 (Mac & PC) at-
https://store.contour.com/pages/story…

There are many “How To’s” on YouTube on operating & trouble shooting your Contour unit. There are many action cameras out there for the outdoorsman or woman. For me you can’t beat the cost or ease of operation of Contour’s Action Cameras. Now go & have fun!

The Best Action Camera For Capturing Videos For The Sportsman!

When i first started sharing my videos on mostly fishing i asked fellow YouTuber Joe Olivas “WWJ” of Kauai which unit he uses since i had issues with my GoPro at that time.

I contacted Contour to confirm this released & if i’m still under sponsorship to receive a Beta unit for testing. Not only am i still on the list but Contour sent me 2 brand new units to help tide me over by replacing my current Roam 2 & 3. I was having audio glitches but performed the Contour Firmware free Updates available at-

Years back i did an unboxing & reviews on these units.

It doesn’t matter that i’m sponsored by Contour, what matters is i’d still be using Contour Action Cameras over over brands like GoPro because for what i do it’s the correct unit for me. If you are using another type of video styled camera & are happy with it, stick with it. As long as your unit satisfies your needs there’s no reason to change. But when you do decide for another look at other units please consider Contour Action Cameras. The new Contour4 should be out soon & i’ll be putting out a video on it’s unboxing.
