Default What do you use to record?

I've been thinking about getting a "action cam" and just want to know what every one uses. it would be great if you could leave some video from it and some opinions!

Thanks
Liam

Contour I like the smaller size. Easy to use.

Ditto. I have an older Contour HD. I love it. I'm probably going to spring on a new one sometime soon.

Same here. It's either on or off, no menu to scroll or anything else. Slide it on, listen for the beep, slide it off, listen for the beep. I'll probably pick up another as well, for $99 the Roam2 is a heck of a deal.

Water resistant without being in a big clear housing too.

I picked up a Hero they are now $130 and seem to be overqualified for my riding and recording.

I have an older GoPro Hero (720p HD). The GoPros aren't as compact as the Contours, but when the open back is used, I think they record better sound.

This is probably true. I had really bad wind noise until I put a small piece of tape over the mic hole. Now it sounds great.

I use an older Hero2 and it has been rock solid. I am still on the original case even though I have had it strapped to just about everything from my Dog to RC Cars and thousands of miles on my helmet. If you use the vented back on the case the sound is pretty good. All of the following videos were filmed on my GoPro. Keep in mind that the speed of your memory card is the most important thing. Also YouTube kills the quality of your videos if you're not careful when editing. You have to use a format that YouTube agrees with or it will get a little grainy on you when you upload.

There is a heck of a deal on the Roam and Roam2 bundle: http://store.contour.com/products/contour-roam

$114 for both the original Roam and the Roam2. You can upgrade the software on the Roam to Roam2 and have two great cameras for cheap.
