Leaving in 2.5 weeks for Alaska and my wife surprises me with a Gopro Hero 2. Unknown to her is that I ordered a Contour today. So in 2 weeks I need to figure out which camera, best mount, and how to operate it. Here are the facts: I have no video editing experience, shot the kids with VHS years ago. Either camera will have good enough quality for me. I want easy to operate, imagine mounting it to my helmet which will be Nolan N102 or full face depending on which bike. For woods riding, I don't see having the GP sticking out from the side or top of my helmet while ducking branches. For Alaska, I see using it intermittently as interesting things come up while riding, and fun around camp. If I open the GP, I can't return it so I won't be laying hands on it until it is decided. My impression of the GP is that it will be more difficult to operate while riding, and projects too much. I like the iPhone app for the Contour to set up alignment and such easier. On to the helmet, if I go with the Contour, where will it mount when using the Nolan? Any input appreciated!
