Yestarday I had my contour and a packet of sweet and sour sauce in my pocket on the lift, (for eating fries on the chair) then I fell and now my contour is all sticky and the slide is stiff. Shit sucks.

I have a hero 2. Got it for 220$. I agree it looks a little odd perched atop a helmet but the results speak for themselves...

In other news contour signed Travis Rice.

^^^ Cool vid

I thought the contour was waterproof to a few meters? If it's sticky just wash it!?!

I'd buy a contour right now but I have the feeling my vids would look more like this, and a lot less like the vid above.

if i had the money id buy a hero 2 (its the best on the market no doubt and not as big as it used to be) but i dont, plus the contour is about the about the same video quality as the original hero also the contour mounting system works better for mounting on my compound bow shotgun kayak etc

I have a Contour that I bought off amazon for $130, it's awesome the videos do come out like the one above, and the quality is great. Night time is also better than the Gopro.
