I've mentioned elsewhere on the forums that I really like my Contour HD camera.  Contour makes three other models, two with GPS (which would make some awesome course graphics to go with the video), and a new one called Contour ROAM.  Naturally, each of them has must-have features that the other don't, so I've been mulling over them wondering which was best.  Tonight I came across this video clip that directly compares the video quality of three of the 4 models, in case anyone is interested.

(It also shows a lot of tire smoke, in case anybody likes that sort of thing.   Cheesy )

I actually like the Contour, however, in your link the sound is not that great.

To bad it's not possible to embed videos on the forum.

The sound is adjustable, but you set it up in advance via computer.  So it takes some experimentation to get it right.  The higher end Contour models have an ext mic jack.
