The last time we saw an action camera come out of Contour, it was for the Contour+2. Image quality was pretty good, but the mounts were way too fragile. And, under the shadow of GoPro's colossal market-share, Contour shuttered its doors. But now it's back! And its first product back is... a slight improvement on its entry-level camera.

Yes, it's action cam season. Sony has entered the market, Contour has updated its line with the Contour+2. But what about the latest from the brand that's come to define the category — the Kleenex of action cams, if you will?
