I just sold my Contour Roam and ordered up one of the Sony ActionCams. This is a new phone that's only just been released.
They are very similar in performance to the GoPro - it looks like they do better in low light but in bright sun some highlights may be blown out - this is a good compromise for me. At $198 for the base unit they're really decent looking - and they come with the underwater housing for that money.
I ordered the WiFi version which allows you to use your phone (Android or iOS) as a viewfinder to line up shots properly, control the camera and download recorded content. If it works as well as I think it will, I'm going to order a second for rear-facing (and sell my other HD helmet cam).
Work: the 8 hours that separates bike rides.
