Check out the Contour HD, it looks like a great camera? It has wide angle lens & has gotten great reviews why do you say i'm throwing my money away? Check it out. $300 camera is alot of $$ it is not the cheap $100 junk.. 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. HD Video Samples from ContourHD Wearable Camcorder
That video sample from whistler makes me want to ride there sooo bad!!!
Camera looked good. Makes me want to get one for next season.
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.
