Okay not everyones cup of tea, but useful for those skiers, cyclists, motorcyclists and anyone else who wants a good helmet cam out there. The next closest prices i can see are ranging from about £240-320 so 180 from amazon is a good deal in my eyes

Capture the Whole Scene
At 135 degrees, the ContourHD Wearable Camcorder lens strikes the perfect balance in capturing the entire scene without over-distorting the video. Its single focus lens keeps the entire scene in focus, recording video much like you remember it.
8 Hours of HD Video
An all-in-one HD wearable camcorder means there are no wires or tapes. ContourHD records to a removable, internal MicroSD memory card, capturing up to 8 hours of HD video (compatible up to a 16GB Memory Card).
With Full Audio
We believe video from within the action is better with sound! The ContourHD microphone does its best to keep the wind noise to a minimum while keeping the sounds of the ride rich. Configure the microphone on your ContourHD1080p camera to the action sounds you want.
Easy to Use
Smallest in the World
