Pros Reliable to use
One button recording even with gloves
loads of mounts
easy to upload video
easy to use manual
Cons doesnt take still photos
need to log on computer to change setting
goggle mount angles a bit like when using skiing
Summary Coming from an unreliable Go Pro i found this far superior despite a few less features. has been supremely reliable and never had an issue with recording footage.Would be better if was fully waterproof without the extra casing (however the new Roam sorts this out)
Pros High definition - 1080p , the highest HD and the best video quality
Weight - doesn't feel like you're wearing it.
Just like a usb - plug in, take video, plug out.
replaceable/rechargeable battery - 2-3 hours
Cons Goggle Mount - not much use (snowboarding) when its flopping around on the side of your head
Summary Love it, well worth it.
Pros good pictures no shaking or break up of picture
Cons light sensitive, microphone gets to much wind disturbance
Pros sleek design, great HD quality, durable, reliable, easy to mount, easy to use, presettings, Vholdr community
Cons mic could be better and hard to shoot in low light
Summary i've used a good amount of cameras in my day and i love the Contour HD. i've mounted it in several places and found it versatile enough to fit almost every situation. great all around helmet cam for the price.
Pros Small, Lightweight, Great Quality, Excellent locking mechanism, Rugged (steel body), One handed use, LARGE record button, EXTREMELY small media type with VERY large memory capabilities (16GB Micro SD Card - sold separately)
Cons Included software not the best for editing, AND you HAVE to use the included software to update the device. Poor Low light shooting.
Summary This camera is small and light. Uses the H.264 Quicktime Codec which allows file size to stay ultra small while the video and audio quality is top notch. The included software isn't the best in the world, but this is a camera company... not a software company. With this camera, Final Cut Pro, and After Effects.... you can do anything you want. I highly recommend this camera, it's extremely fun.
