Contour or GoPro?

I want to start making videos and I don't know whether the Contour or the GoPro is better. I'd really love some help on deciding, thanks

Depends on your price range by far the best action camera right now is the gopro 3 black.

Around 170 or less the Astak 7200 is probably the best.

Up to preference most of them besides the black do 1080 30 fps or 720 60 fps. Go pros have more mount options. Different profiles tho.

I have a contour +2 for sale. PM me if interested.

First Contour got shot in the lens of my contour w/o the water proof case. It is gone.

Second Contour's power button broke off aster using the water proof case for 2 month. Biggest POS ever. Go with the go pro

BTW don't get the Go Pro Black edition. There has been reports of it freezing/corrupting files and killing SD cards.

I should say I had one and killed my 32 GB SD card

i have a contour hd and a contour roam...both have been shot to hell and are in perfect working order. the game footage in my sig has videos from both of them. i have a mount on my mask as well as a handlebar mount that i use on the side of my ego. i like the size/shape of the contour...the boxiness of the go pro wasnt for me.

The hd hero one is perfect. Don't waste money because its black, that doesn't mean it will be faster.

batteries on gopro 3's are horrific... Like an hour of recording...

I use a contour roam, best $99 camera out there. films in 720 at 170 degree wide angle.

But, none of them show what you shoot, you need a camera with zoom to do that, and they don't make action cams with optical zoom.

Get a used GoPro Hero 2 lol. But really. GoPro has the best quality picture on market for action cameras right now. Contour is nice for the one button/switch operation. It's really preference. Contours are easy to use, easy to mount. GoPros are easy to use, easy to mount and have better picture quality and are practically bullet proof.

GoPro Silver with the Battery Back. I never run out of juice even after hours of play/standby time.

It also takes hits and bumps like a champ.
