I am faced with a decision. I very much want to get a POV camera, and my uncle works for REI, so he can get me a Contour GPS for $180, then I pay him back. Or, my friend is "sponsored" by GoPro on Hookit.com (formerly Sponsorhouse) and he gets 40% off of the 1080. Which amounts to $180 dollars. Same price as the Contour. So basically GoPro HD Hero vs. Contour GPS. I will be using the camera for mainly POV skiing, if that helps.
Sorry for the shitty thread, I am tired.
