Yeah I think the best footage I got with my contour (other than when I took it snorkelling) was when I trailed my GF to get a video of her progression:

Main thing is the video's look nothing like what it's really like. And that's mostly due to the wide angle lens. I'm looking at getting a chest strap for my DSLR so that I can take good photos and vids on the hill from a stationary position. I'll miss the "chase cam" style vids from the helmet cam, but the DSLR will take WAYYYYYYY better photos and vid.
