I'm thinking to buy a POV camera. Looks like two market leaders are GoPro and Contour.
I have borrowed my friend's GoPro HD Hero and tested it out. It works well, however the housing is bulky and it is awkward when it is mounted on the helmet. The housing and the camera feel a bit heavy on the helmet. It's bit hard to operate when you can not see the status light.
I haven't tried Contour. From the specification, I like it. Compared to GoPro Hero, Contour is smaller, lighter, easier to operate when mounted on the helmet. Battery life for Contour 1080p without GPS is slightly better than GoPro.
Comments or suggestions?
