i still have the vids up if you want to see em BB at livevideo.com/jonnyfranx.
yeah I don't want to be sticking anything into my helmet aside from sunglasses.

Not to mention, I was looking for something more eloquent in design.

Bullet style is probably your best bet.

I wish the GoPro was bullet style since it gets hit head on by the wind! How is that a wise design?? Let's make the largest side of the camera perpendicular to the wind direction!! Go figure!



The strength of the GoPro camera in my opinion is the simplicity in design, the ruggedness, the assortment of mounts and the quality of the video it produces specially the HD cameras.

The weakness of the GoPro camera is the bulkiness I mentioned above and the lack of a video display screen which would allow you to point the camera. The other cameras I have (except for the Oregon Scientific) either have a video display (MotoComm) or lasers (VHoldr Contour) to align your shot.

Anyway just my 2 cents.

yeah I was looking into others aside from the big two and none really fit my needs that well.

Yeah that gopro seems really rugged and well put together when put next to the contour.

No offense, but sending money to a random paypal address for a GB sounds sketchy as hell. I was interested, but the alarms are sounding for me...
