Summary: This review is mostly for soldiers, I'm INF doing PSD in AFG, a lot of mount up > dismount > mount up kind of stuff. Dont buy the ARC rail and adapter for $100+, if you have a surefire helmet light, which if your not a fobbit gets issued (fobbits dont need cameras!!
Summary: Fishermen are known for their tall tales. As an old retired guy it happens often that I catch a good one without a fishing buddy to document my catch. Thus I'm left often with a fishy tale and no evidence at all. So I decided to buy this hands free action cam.
Summary: I got this camera for skiing in December 2011, and so far it hasn't disappointed. It works well in both daylight and night conditions, and video quality is spectacular, even on the lower resolution.
Mostly right, some features better than newer models

Summary: I debated getting this camera, the ContourHD, a GoPro, or a Contour Roam. Ultimately I went with this for a couple reasons - - Cheaper - I like the cylinder form factor better than the box of the GoPro - Comes with a goggle mount(not expensive, but another $20) Attached video is 720p edited in...
Summary: I bought this camera last week along with the dash/windshield mount. Overall I am pleased with both; the camera does what it says and holds true to most of the other review compliments and complaints. The mount is very good, rock solid on the windshield.
Summary: This is not the best sports video camera on the market, but it is the best value. No other camera gives you the same video quality for under $120. If you want more features, you have lots of other choices from Contour and other brands. If you just want to create fun videos, stick with this one.
Summary: 1. great video quality 2. once you get over a speed of 30mph the camera has to much wind noise(some was expected i had to tape the speaker to dull the wind noise) 3. the interface seems difficult at first and confused me for the first hour 4.
Summary: As everyone else, I was looking between this and the GoPro. I recently got into obstacle races like Warrior Dash and Tough Mudder, and I wanted something to remember the races with. I use the ContourHD, headband strap, and a thin bandana or headband so it doesn't rub on my head.
Summary: As if biking in a city wasn't awesome enough, this camera triples the awesomeness! I finally got the chance to properly test this with the contour bike mount the other day, and the picture quality is really good!
Summary: The first thing I miss on this camera is a viewfinder, no LCD screen to see what is recording. I knew that going into it, but it really sinks in when you're holding it. I'm certain most folks won't be bothered when they're helmet mounting it or whatever.
