Vholder ContourHD - coming soon!

Looks like vholder is getting an upgrade!

http://www.vholdr.com/contourhd/features

1280x720 @ 30 fps! very nice!

I'm STILL waiting on my jonescam unit that I ordered/paid for over a month ago. I'm giving the guy another week and if no unit i'm gonna get a refund and pre-order one of these.

Looks like they start shipping mid may for around 280 US.

Today marks the day that I will start saving up for one of those suckers!!

I have always wanted a helmet cam, but the price has always been too high and the quality too low. I knew it was only a matter of time till the price became reasonable for a good unit. Seems like this might be the ticket.

I dont have the money right now, but I could probably come up with the $$ in less than a month. A group buy would be sick!! Imagine the Pics and vids section of the forum 3 weeks after we all get our cameras!! That would be so cool!

Yeah.. Nothing like a video of me puttering down the trail at 10km/h and hitting all those 6" drops to get the blood flowing

True

But in all honesty, I like watching videos of all riding levels. Even if the riding is lame, the chance to see what kinds of TRAILS other riders are hitting up is interesting in my opinion.

if it's as good as it looks then I'm in too. Been waiting a long time for something like this to come out. Just wondering how they can do it for that cost compared to Vio sport for $650 which isn't HD. I guess a big part is there's no playback screen, but I prefer to film everything then edit on the computer anyways. Run time of 2 hours on SD means HD is not going to get you much... spare batteries are $30 US, hopefully there's some compatible larger battery packs available somewhere.

You obviously arent their target market. I imagine most people looking to buy this camera (like me) are only looking to get smaller clips of footage.

If i do end up getting the camera, ill run it straight out of the box for a while, but I would eventually get another SD card and an extra battery for those times that I want to document an entire ride. But for my purposes, I really dont need high capacity long run time. I just want to document some of my riding so when im old and broken down I can remember the old days

If you want high capacity and long run time you're probably gonna be in the $500-$1000 range.

The new VHolder sounds interesting. I might also be in on a group buy.

Has anyone seen anything or heard anything on the FCII (or FC2) helmet camera. It would be interesting to compare the two. The footage from this camera looks pretty impressive, but first hand feedback is always helpful.

I saw it on the following site: http://pointofviewcameras.com/all-ca...ports-cam.html

Here is the homepage: http://www.fc2cam.com/
