Summary: I bought this camera after researching paintball forums, since my primary use for it is to wear during paintball games. I got it in October 19th (the day after I ordered it), and took it out this past weekend. I gotta say, this is a great little camera!
Summary: I use this camera mounted on my kayak helmet. Great quality video with easy to use on/off and record switches even when installed in a waterproof housing. I do not like the 15 minute inactivity auto shutdown.
Awesome value. The camera has its flaws, but at $137.99, you get more than what you pay for.

Summary: Summary: If you want the best video quality, get either a Contour+ ($499, the newest and greatest) or a GoPro HD Hero ($239+++, starting to show its age). Otherwise, nothing comes close to the ContourHD+waterproof casing at $170. You get way more than what you pay for, which is great!
Summary: Purchased from Amazon and the item arrived as scheduled. Every thing was included that was suppose to be. However, the camera was a Dead on Arrival(DOA), and I had to send it back to the manufactor for a ops check to confirm status.
Summary: I purchased this so I could record in game footage while playing paintball. I got to use it this weekend for the first time. While I was pretty terrible, the camera worked great. Picture quality was awesome as was the sound. Ease of use was excellent.
Summary: Purchased the ContourHD camera in June 2011. I have used it several times and it has worked great. Very easy to use and to transfer the video. I also bought the waterproof case and the bicycle mount. The bicycle mount worked very well on my Specialized Epic and the video was very clear.
Summary: Length:: 0:29 Mins I bought this camera to use for safety purposes as a bike commuter. This camera is stealth enough to look like a helmet light and not attract any attention. 2 days after I got it, I was commuting home and captured a car blowing through a red light and t-boning a cyclist.
Summary: I bought this camera to record skiing. It fills the bill perfectly, as other reviews have described. I was even able to view the videos on my Linux machine. The one small thing to watch out for is that the large record switch must be slid all the way forward for recording to begin.
Summary: I wanted to get a helmet cam for snowboarding and mountain biking. I was looking at the GoPro and Countour HD. Both produce excellent picture quality but I'm also looking for design, size, weight, and "ruggedness" if that is a word... The ContourHD had it all.
Summary: I was surprised at how lite the ContourHD 1080p was and how easy it was to operate. The directioning lasers help you see where the camera is pointing. I shot a few test videos in all the setting the camera has to offer from the highest resolution to the poorest/lowest settings and they all produced...
