Talking I'm Going Mental

Two things:
Trying to find this helmet but everywhere I find the color I want the size is wrong... I'm trying to get my hands on the Smith Hustle in the Chocolate Check color... I know I'm being a bit of a pre Madonna in being so picky with the color, and I am already looking at just getting a matte white R.E.D or something similar but holy shit!

Secondly I'm hitting up Whistler in the winter and am seriously thinking of buying a helmet cam (providing I can decide on one haha) anyways was wondering if anyone has any experience with either the GoPro Hero, or the ContourHD they're both basically the same price range, however the GoPro has the wider angle with the higher resolution. But the Contour is smaller with the longer battery life. Granted the GoPro just takes AAA batteries so I can just pop more in. But I'm looking for the camera that will give a clean bright colored image with a high enough framerate that if I decide to slow it down; that it won't look like ass.

Also this is in before: "Decide on something yourself", "You shouldn't care what other people think", "Just buy what is comfortable". I did the research on the camera just looking for some opinions. With regards to the helmet, any other ideas where I can find a large size would be helpful.

i have the HD GoPro and i love it though it doesnt take batteries, it comes with a rechargeable battery pack. not sure if thats just a thing with the HD one and the regular gopro takes batteries or what. i havent tried the contour but i have heard more good things about the go pro then i have about the contour so i ended up with that.
