GoPro Hero 3 vs Contour ROAM2 action videocameras

Post by Cory » Tue Sep 03, 2013 10:52 am

Got to make a decision one way or the other today about which action video camera to buy for a birthday gift.

Anyone have any tips or suggestions? 14 yr old is a boarder and a x-biker. He's wanted a GoPro for a year but someone mentioned a Contour ROAM as an option.
GoPro has WIFI and is lighter. We're heading in this direction but reviews of the Contour seem to be consistent and not bad.

I'd choose gopro when attaching to bike etc. contour when helmet mounting.

Thanks, Upphew! The issue is that he would like the camera for all sports and to add to the list, I forgot that he's also a huge airsofter so another helmet mount.
Just went and bought the Contour. Can get handle mounts for it, too, but the helmet mounts will most probably get the most use.
