My sarcasm doesn't always translate well into print. Your sniper-cam reference brought to mind the guy on the ground (i.e. the guy with his finger on the trigger), now being second-guessed by those in the rear who've been enabled by technology to micro-manage the battlefield, often with a bad outcome. Sorry to have drifted the thread.

I've been wanting to get a camera for s & giggles for awhile now. I've been debating between a GoPro Hero 2 or the Contour Roam HD.... any suggestions?

Well I did it now u need to get the mount. Got a Contour Roam 2 HD... tested it and the video quality is outstanding. The 60 fps on 720 is really clear and smooth.

this is little late but.. it also looked like the camera was upside down on the shotgun and pistol..

perhaps a new mount, tightening tool, and or lock-tite is needed.

I used an old red dot QD mount, bent a piece of aluminum, spent 45 minutes at the hardware store finding the hardware and painted it. I'll post pics of it on the gun later
