Noticed a big difference between footage shot with a semi-loose and tight helmet.

I've got a road bike and mountain bike edit I'll share once I get them uploaded to youtube.
I wasn't disappointed with that footage (regular 720p I think) when using the Contour flex strapped to the down tube or the top tube, those are relatively stable. GoPro mounted to the bars also returns decent footage sometimes. The helmet cam was too damn wobbly, though, I suppose I should tighten the strap but it just doesn't fit snugly like my snow helmet. >> Reviews | Trip Reports | Commentary
