Contour +2

Aspiring filmmakers will dig the +2's wide-angle lens, full video customizability, and clear HD resolution – but not its 5mp stills and standard-def slow-mo. Still, its rugged casing kept it safe during Tough Mudders and singletrack rides, and its slider button both turns it on and starts recording (smart), so we didn't miss a second. Bonus: Bluetooth lets your phone double as viewfinder and remote. [$400; contour.com]
