The Contour Roam3 action camera provides the best video and sound quality of any Contour camera.

The camera has a 270-degree rotatable lens boasting a 170-degree field of view, a laser alignment system for aiming the lens and an instant-on record switch. captures 1080p video at 30 frames per second or 720p video at 60 frames per second and records it on the included 8 GB memory card. It can also capture still photos in 5-megapixel single frames or burst mode.

The highlight of this camera is its ability to shoot underwater at a depth of up to 9 meters without a special case. To compare, the Roam2 can only go down to one meter while the Roam+2 requires a separate casing to work underwater.

The Contour Roam3 action camera is priced at $200, making it $50 more expensive than the Roam2 and $100 less than the Roam+2.
