Crashing your jet ski might be a painful experience, but if you’ve got video of your mishap to show off, and perhaps make a few bucks in the process thanks to YouTube views, well, your pain might quickly subside.  Capturing all that goodness though, requires a rugged, waterproof HD camera.

The ContourROAM is Contour’s latest HD head mountable video camera.  It can capture 1080p, 960p, and 720p video at 30fps, and 5 megapixel still photos.  A 170-degree wide angle lens that can be rotated 270-degrees (think angle left, right, up, down) all but guarantees that you’ll catch your tom foolery at its best.

Inside the 5.1oz camera is a laser guide that fires a horizontal line, ensuring that you get the level shot your looking for, especially when you use the included tripod screw mount and the Contour Trail mounting system.

Chances are the ContourROAM will be mounted on your head, out of your field of view, so they’ve added an Instant On-Record Switch that powers on the camera and initiates recording.

When and if you take a dip into the drink, the ContourROAM can survive in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes as well as a variety of other environments thanks to the aluminum body.

The ContourROAM is available now from retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy and more for $199.99
