Cant go wrong with a go pro, contour or drift mate - they all have pros and cons

contour - best design - only head mount
gopro - best footage - loads of mount's - ugly and prone to catching stuff
drift - footage as good as go pro - only head mount - big

id lend you my 720 contour mate but i think it needs a new battery as was misbehaving at triscombe

Thanks Jon - a good summary

Damo - think I will go with that if they can deliver in time. Re bike - I have invested in significantly pimping up my Nomad - it flew pretty well at FOD so looking forward to it.

Awesome - Looking forward to watching you take out Remy Absalon with a 2 wheel drift in the first corner.

Chest mounts give some good shots mate and good sensation of speed http://vimeo.com/8790974

good luck buddy

Ttry cycle surgery in romford or milton keynes, thats where i got mine from

Another problem with the go pro, is it struggles to pick up the best quality footage in foggy, overcast weather.

Also just picked up a GoPro today

Does anyone know what standard/class of SD card is best to go for - does it make much difference?

Good luck with the Mega Nige, look forward to the vid

Tapatalk puts that as a sig unless you switch it off on the application in your phone - just go into settings and turn it off there
