I like mine and I have an older one, but I don't use it a whole lot.

They are great but a pain in the ass to set up if you are on the fly.

Q has one on his helmet, like a giant Prince Albert, testing is going well but the Hershey Highway is causing some integration and quality control issues.

i have a contour as well - but no handy dandy way of controlling it other than the on-off switch. mainly use it for my motorcycle, in case i get in an accident or whatever

GoPros are great. Depending on what your doing might want to consider a FITFORT (knock off) brand stright from the bowels of Amazon. Less painful when it gets crushed or slammed into the side of a mountain/rock. Check out ddgtactical.com and you can get yourself a gopro picatinny mount thatlly fit most of the "box style" action cameras- including the FITFORT.
