Tyler.ADidn't Contour go out of business?
I own one but i wish i had gone for the GoPro, I find even after adjustments the video quality just isn't the same on the Contour.
-AM-Honestly, the contour has nothing on the gopro. A friend of mine shot an edit with the contour and it looks absolutely awful. The Hero 3 now can also shoot in 2.7k at 30fps, which is also kind of nice. The one downside to the gopro is the battery life, which shouldnt be an issue for you unless you plan on leaving the camera running for more than 2-3 hours.
CaseyI think the contour has a better mounting system than the gopro. I haven't really looked into gopros but between all the 360 degree mounts and various bar mounts, its pretty awesome. You definitely don't look like as much of an idiot rocking a contour. Plus you can download the app if you have android or IOS to use your phone as a viewfinder via Bluetooth.
ThurnisHaleyI heard action cams were really nice and got really good video quality for what it is. But with that being said i've never owned one and have a hero2 and I really like it. I just don't get to use it a ton.
