Great little camera.
I picked the contour because I really like the form factor and didn't want a little toaster on my head while skiing. The contour has held up great so far and I have had major issues.
The only little problems I have had is you have be careful with the rear-door. I found on more than 1 occasion with gloves and what not I managed to flip the back door off and it was coated in snow after. No water issues afterwards though.
Great picture quality and lots of options for frame rates and resolution. I am still playing with mine to find out exactly what I want it at.
I do find compared to my friends GoPro's that they have a larger FOV. I wish the FOV was a little bigger on the contour.
