I was aware of the gopro capabilities but chose Sony, because of splash proof design, better low light performance, aerodynamic shape (I will be using it on a bicycle).
I think the Sony action cams need to come down quite a bit more to compete with GoPros. This is almost Hero 3+ Black pricing and the 3+ Black can do 4K @ 15fps (useless for video bet great for time lapse) and 1440p @ 48fps with different resolutions and aspect ratios in between those. The Black edition also has ProTune which is great for people who like playing with video production (you will see A LOT of TV shows use GoPros for things like in car video).

Drift HD 720 £99.99 @ Action Cameras£99.99
Looks like the 10% voucher codes don't work with this - or at least P18710 and BARON10 don't. Still, this is the cheapest i've seen the 720.
I have the Contour GPS & it's excellent - but not waterproof like this. I prefer the 135 degree field of view on the Contour GPS though to 170 degree on this. Yes you get more in the picture, but everything looks smaller too.
Yeah, that's exactly the reason I got this rather than the HD Hero...I would've looked a right berk with it strapped to my helmet every day. I already get enough funny looks for wearing cycling tights etc :D
There are plenty of deals that include using a code. This is a good price for this camera, although I prefer the GoPro (although you look stupid with it strapped to you, and the price of the accessories is a joke).
There's nothing about that in HUKD's "Posting Deals" instructions and everyone should be able to use the voucher. So no, I don't see why it has to be done that way. There's nothing dishonest about the price I posted.
ah, old Baron Von Grumble

Those complaining about price probably dont do anything exciting enough to make this worthwile. Although the contour is a good cam, Im using the GoPro HD cam which is the other HD action cam alternative.
Water resistant. You could probably dunk it and it'd survive. But the waterproof case is separate. Cheapest I can find it (in stock) is £27.48 at Fawkes Cycles. http://www.fawkes-cycles.co.uk/10159/products/Waterproof_housing_for_ContourHD_and_ContourHD_1080p.aspx
is this beer proof?, i want to use it to find out what ive done after a night on the ****.
Crazy price... never would pay so much money for such camera. Cold for me.
Please, enlighten us... HD GoPro is £300, the ContourHD is usually more than this too. If there is some other comparable HD helmet cam out there, let us know...
