Go Pro?
Contour?
Epic?

I've read the best reviews about the GoPro, but it is friggin huge! I like the size of the Contour and Epic. I know some of you guys have them, so please share your opinions!

I have a go pro I liked it except mine was defective. It would shut off by itself after a few mins of recording. They where great to deal with in returning it. But when I rolled it was an the bars and snapped off...it says it was shock proof but it never turned on again after that...

I only have experience with the GoPro and the ATC2K. The ATC2K was very affordable but the quality isn't that of the GoPro. The ATC2K has a better battery life but that's where it ends.

The GoPro shoots WAY better video and has a wide-angle lense that give you better depth perception as far as what is going on. If you get the GoPro with all the mounts - it's pretty versitile.

So far I haven't had any buddies with any issues with either.

Have you seen the GoPro in person, or just in pics? Because it looks huge, but it really is small. I love mine!

Sorry to bump an old post but have you guys heard of the Liquid Image Impact Series Goggles? A camera that's installed inside the goggles. I've been trying to do some research about them but I haven't really found any solid reviews about them. I assume that they're pretty new to the market. If they're any good, which the videos of them don't look bad, I'd be killing two birds with one stone since I need new goggles and I had been wanting a camera for a while.

I'd just like to reassure myself with someone else's opinion of them before I go hungry for them and make a bad decision.

Acording to this you will be waiting till fall of 2011, I think the 720p is avail. now. So I'd get some cheap goggles for now. And wait for the full 1080's

M Quick,
Now that is real innovation!!!! I haven't bought a camera because I don't want to drill holes in my helmet of stick something to it. This design is a real break-through if the quality, image and customer support are as good as the Go Pro. My only concern is that there may be a serious interference problem with helmet upper portion near the visor on a Motocross type helmet. I hope that Summit Series fits OK. I sure want one. "M", as you pointed, out definitely need to do more research.
Thanks for this link to the web site.
Sid

lol, I wouldn't be to sure about riding trails with the $179 go pro. Let alone trust a 1k plus unit on my helmet, while dodging low limbs.

GoPro HD 1080P

Hey it’s almost my B-day! And the wife surprised me with a GoPro Hd 1080p camera! I’m looking for any mounting tips. I know it says room temperature, and clean helmet. I was wondering if I should apply alcohol to the mounting area 1st, and I’m surprised it didn’t come with a wipe or two. I mean for $ 279.00 come on. Also wondering about the video mode, what’s best to shoot in? One would think the highest 1080p, but that says 30fps. And in 720p it will shot at 30 fps and 60fps. So I am looking for info on those two things, and or anything else someone has to offer, thanks.

If your wanting to capture fast riding. Set it to the 720. If your riding slower and want to catch more detail set it to 1080. I usually set mine to the 60fps mode when on my street bike and 30 fps when on the quad.

Thanks, from what I read in the paper work, it says the 60fps mode is just good for slow motion viewing? And the 720 is widest angle. And to use 1080p for highest quality, and it shoots a 25% narrower than the 720 mode. 127 degree in 1080p full hd mode and all other modes are 170 degree of view. I would think like you, the faster you ride you would need the 60fps, but IDK that’s why I am posting. What about the mounting tips, you ever have a mount come loose or fall off?
