rider007 The contourHD is.... HD. That says it all. All the other cameras suck in comparison. watch the comparison video they made with all the other cams: videos
I use the contour for mountian biking, but int he winter I will rent it through emotioncam so I don't care if I crater and it gets shredded.

You do not need to spend $700+ on a camera to get a good one, that camera you were talking about is a tad overboard & not even HD, looks very nice but I dont have a bugest to spend $700+ on just a camera esp when I'v done alot of research on the contourHD and has only cvame up with positive things to say.

legallyillegal water resistant is not the same as waterproof

(vholdr is apparently working on a waterproof model)

make it waterproof, replace the proprietary battery with regular AAs (lithium or other), and accept regular SD/SDHC cards - it would be awesome

Ya I agree, Iv seen MANY reviews and DEMO's of what the camera can do and man it looks GREAT. I think it'll be a good buy. By the way they compare it to the VIO in one of there reviews and it takes the cake from vio.

Not sure about the camera you are thinking of getting, but if it doesn't have a video playback and wide angle lens, I wouldn't bother with it. Time and time again I have friends that think they are saving money with a cheaper helmet cam and end up hardly being able to use it. The VIO POV models are by far the best I have seen. About the only drawback is the cable to the controller. It's not bad but there were some problems with the connection last year. My understanding is that they have fixed the problem with this years camera. Yes they cost aroud $600, but your money will be worth it. Or you can throw away $280 on something that will hardly be usuable.
