Add this one to your list to check out.

Replay XD

I'm still doing some research on it. I can't find any real info on if it is waterproof or not. They just say weatherproof.

I am a solid GoPro fan. I have owned and used both their SD and HD models. They just came out with thir 2nd generation HD model. Most versitile POV on the market!!! Do the research and you will see. Actually, just watch TV. You will see them used all over action sports TV shows.

I just bought a contour, mostly because the price was unbeatable. However, I've never really been tempted to buy a Gopro. I know that dollar for dollar they have better features (I've done the comparisons) but I just can't get past that thing jutting up out of your helmet.


Error 404. Coffee not found.

all the comparisons I've seen show the contour+ to have far better movie quality then go pro. not talking the normal contour though or even the contour gps. i think go pro wins on quality of mounts and accessories.

Contour 1080p GPS. Bluetooth to your phone as a viewfinder and settings changer. You KNOW you are shooting what you want to shoot, and you can change setting if you're alone without taking off your kit. Easier record on/off as well. Giant slide button. The GPS also tracks your location and elevation too I believe, allows for a map of your day if I remember right.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I have the Contour GPS. I think the GoPro has a slight edge as far as picture quality but I like the ergonomics better with the Contour. I also like being able to use my iPhone as a wireless viewfinder to preview and set up shots with the Contour.
