I'm having a little trouble deciding between the GoPro HD and the Contour HD

Do any of you guys have experience with both, or a reason to avoid one vs the other?

Bike tour, the operator does 1 day and up tours. Did a one day, due to time off from job. And we did a quad tour the week before that really sucked, so we tried
www.incamotoadventures.com. It was a great ride went about 100 miles that day. Had lunch in some littile village, then rode back. Planning another one day trip next week.

there are a lot of cameras on the market now. the Goggles are good for POV, but probably not so good in a canopied boat!

the gopro seem to do a good job , as their marketing dept seems to be all over.

I have two Countour HD and three gopros and the GoPro's image is tremendously superior.
