Pros where do I start?
Simplicity. Ease of use will have grandma wanting to use this.
Durable construction. There's a reason why Contour cameras have the same proven form factor.
Mounting options. proven Tee rail is the camera's legacy but the addition of th
Cons Lack of floatation. being waterproof doesn't require a housing now. this will affect it "floatability"
plastic lens. not much experience with this one yet, but I'd be concerned with scratching from using it around sand or dirt.
Summary For the price, you can't touch this camera for what it can do. It's streamline shape looks appealing on the side of your helmet. Want to look like a teletubbie or like you know what you're doing? Contour scores points in my book for making an affordable HD cam that I'm not afraid to get wet. I use this camera exclusively for kiteboarding. It's design is perfect for capturing the experience on the water.edit to original review... in regards to "Pros" I listed mounting options however my review was truncated. I want to add that integrating the threaded tripod hole into the body of the camera opens up many possibilities for mounting the camera.

Pros Great 1080p image quality
always ready to go
1 meter of water resistance WITHOUT the waterproof case
Nice to put on the side of an helmet withou looking like an unicorn-GoPro
lense protected by a plastic cover (replaceable), preventing scratching
Cons Cant record 1080p with 170 vision angle, it gets only to 125
Cant choose the video format without a PC
it doesnt have the bluetooth connection like the Contour Plus
almoust sure that it doesnt have image stabilizer
Summary Again, for this price, defenitly a strong choice, it wont let you down!
