The video on their home page is sweet.

I almost bought one last week to mount to the front of the 40, but the Tundra is getting new brakes today so no gopro CM11

He seems to like it better.

I have one of these..... http://replayxd.com/replay-xd-overview/ It works really great, is super tiny and picture quality is superb. I use it mostly for mounting under my rig for watching things work under stress. The different mounts that came with it are handy as heck and make it mountable on almost everything. The battery will last almost 2 hours which is how long a 4g mini card will record. It is not fancy and it's only function is record or not record but it's tini size makes up for the different options others have.

My buddy Steve has a Go camera. It's been dropped, run over, submerged and hit whilest cycling, skiing and kayaking. He mounts either on top of his helmet or in a chest harness. It's a durable little sucker. Video quality seems good to me. Chest-mounted, it works well, on top of your brain bucket it's pretty tall compared to the bullet form factor IMHO. But no overhanging rocks or trees have broken it, a couple enough to knock him off the bike.

i've heard more people going from contour to the go pro than the other way around...

Here is a cool vid

I've been looking a bit into those two cameras, and apparently with the GPS contour and an Iphone, you can use bluetooth to change exposure settings, etc. Oh for an extra 250 dollars.

I am getting the GO Pro 1080P wide angle. They go for $300.00. I was just at REI the other day, and they were out of this version. They only had the 960I/fish eye.

But that was tempting at $180.00

Don't you need to save some money for a Bumper or a college fund???
