What type of lens are they using? The full on wide angle?

Would definitely be nice to have a solid cylinder cam out there, I feel like if I bought a go-pro it would get demolished by trees, or god knows what else.

Uhhh, isn't the contour already a solid cylinder? If by solid cylinder you mean like a mag light, aluminium tube with lens on one end and access port on the other.

Just checked the specs on this ION camera and the base model looks similar in specs to the Contour Roam, at about the same price point ($229). But it's waterproof to 30 ft instead of 3 ft, and can take 60 fps at 720... If it's lense is as good as the contour then it's a pretty good deal. Would like to see a head to head comparison.

FWIW I've run my Contour Roam for a total of about 4 hours straight in one day on the hill. It didn't die, but it also doesn't have a battery meter so I couldn't tell you how much more was in the tank!

Yeah the GP sucks. I got a screaming deal on it and can sell it easily for what I bought it for, or more.

Interested in this ion camera too.

There is one spot where there isn't any flair, but then the scenery was mostly static.
