Hi all- Lacy from Contour here.
Both cameras are very good for filming sports or just whatever. They're both easy to use however they're got a few differences that set them apart.
The Contour is super simple to use and that's probably it's biggest bonus. It's just record/stop with the slide of a button. It's super durable, has a really nice lens as well as lens kits you can buy to tweak your footage the way professional photographers/videographers do. We have lots of mounting options and a lot more coming out very soon that are significantly lower profile than what you've seen before. The video quality is amazing, with the ability to shoot in full 1080HD, 960, and, my favorite, 720 at 60fps (makes for super smooth picture).
We'd be happy to answer any specific questions you have. Feel free to reply here or shoot me an email at email@example.com
Thanks and good luck with your decision.
