Mounts easily to a helmet, works well
Whats the battery life on it and what type of storage does it use?
I cant stand the micro SD cards that the contour uses....
But i've seen a gopro screw up a video before, cut it in half vertically. Might have been humidity damage.
But my contour has recorded 2 videos with no sound so far as well....

Amos is in this video, it's all choppy due to being converted into a different codec

The picture quality isnt as good as the contour but the GoPro comes with waterproof,dustproof,shockproof case at no extra charge.5mp still camera single shot or every 3-5 sec until memory card is full or battery dies.No wind noise or very low noise plus the price was right ( used from a friend $150.00 )

you can adjust the sound noise to your liking with contour. I got the VholdR ContourHD Waterproof Case with Tripod Mount + O-Ring Silicone Grease for free by the way. Its one of their promotion
The contour itself is already shock proof, even get's better with the waterproof case I got . Plus if it gets hits with BB's, you can buy the replacement lenses.

Well I guess you cant go wrong with $150 hehehe plus its 1080p

Umm, why the differant Codec? The .mov file of the contour is best played back with Quicktime which is totally free. Perhaps the editing program being used wasnt up to par for the contour? What editing program was used?

Try this converter,works well for me when I need it. I find that converting to mpeg II works the best as it's a quicktime format.

Sony has licenses to codecs I've never even heard of before, I guess their converter just sucks...
Does it keep the 1080p format and 30fps?
And is there another codec out there that supports 60fps?

forget about 1080p use 720, 1080 is needless(rendering, uploading and quality) and most people computer won't even see a difference.

60fps is for slow motion and no other reason, you wont notice a difference between the two with the naked eye.

I think mine only does 720 anyway, I was wondering about the higher end models but yeah 720 is fine for anything.
I found the 60fps videos to be WAY smoother and much nicer quality. What's it called when two frames blur together? Because there was none of that going on at 60fps.
It was just way more crisp and clear when your moving the camera around quickly. You cant see crap when you wing the camera around at 30fps, it all blurs up lol

But I'm forced to stick to 720 just because you can NEVER see who I'm shooting in a lower resolution LOL

But even on 720p at 120ish feet, all you see in this video is a blur flailing wildly to avoid my shot
