Contour Camera Settings GUI

Recommended Ubuntu version is 11.10



About contourconfig

Contour cameras are the only hands-free cameras in the world you can configure. With a slide switch you can adjust the sensitivity of the camera's microphone to adapt to high or low wind scenes. It gives you the controls to dial in the metering, sharpness, and exposure to handle any conditions you face. Contour cameras carry multiple HD resolutions and even a photo mode in the ContourGPS model.

When i press my "windows" button on my keyboard, then start typing "contour" and application shows up.

This screen appears when no camera connected or detected to your computer (usual USB).

Once the camera is connected, the notification bubble will popup and you can run contourconfig to manage your camera settings.

Supported models at version contourconfig v0.3 are: 720p, 1080p, Plus and Roam.
