They are really light. I said it might be too big because it might give away your position. You don't have to mount it to the top of your helmet though.

The only thing I don't like about the Contour HD is that you don't get the option of a screen to check the recording angle. Yes I can pay the 500 for the + but I can spend less on the GP.

the go pro has some pretty stellar reviews... and for $300.. that more affordable. i just wonder if the camera will stay somewhat stationary when it locked in and on your head...

There's also the new V.I.O., but that might be too expensive. Just used 3D GoPro setup on a Baja car this weekend and it got ripped off from the rough and tumble action. Good cameras but the design isn't sleek enough for certain applications. MySimon.com helps search for cheaper deals on electronics, amongst other things.

I would say yes. It sticks mountain bikers, moto riders, offroad vehicles and even a sword.
