Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Shooting range

Indeed, I could also change the camera’s resolution and lighting setup through the Contour Camera app which, again, was mighty handy when out and about. Yet it’s the lack of vital features that disappoints. It would be fantastically useful to be able to delete unwanted, storage-squatting clips; great to be able to replay previously shot footage – but neither is available.

The recording button is a rugged on/off affair that lacks any kind of subtle triggering

No doubt the limitation of the requisite Bluetooth connection (low bandwidth) scuppers the video-playback option somewhat, but surely some kind of file management system would be easy enough? Likewise, a simple button on the app to start and stop recording would make operating the camera a far simpler experience. Moreover, this would remove the frame-wobble and annoying audio “thwack” of moving the hefty record on/off slider button.

The Storyteller desktop application for Mac and Windows is another neat addition that lets you cut and trim each sequence of video clips. A curiously titled ‘awesome’ button will tag any section of footage you’d like prospective viewers to jump to. Namely, not the bit where you fell off or crashed.
