Contour HD vs GoPro HD

I've already posted about the GoPro HD a while ago here, but now there seems to be another very good camera on the market. Contour sponsored this year's Burton Global Open Series, which are some of the biggest snowboard contests, and a few of my friends tried one. Quality wise, I guess they're both equally good. The GoPro has a bit a wider angle but then again the Contour is somewhat smaller. They both released some very nice additional features for the cameras like a an lcd back for the GoPro or an App for mobile devices where you can see what you're filming. Check their pages, Contour and GoPro. Here's some pictures and clips.

  1. Actually, the new Contour+ has a 170 degree wide angle lens, so that's not even a factor anymore!

  2. sorry about that, of course you're right
