StF8 done and gone. What a successful comeback of a legendary (crappy) OP. Thanks to everyone that came and helped make this one of the best.

Post contour closes shop?
Apparently contour (gopro's biggest competitors) closed their HQ office and left all their employees wondering wtf happened.

Not too sure. They make a solid product but I will say the non removable battery kinda hurts it vs the gopro. That and besides the airsoft world where it's about 50/50 the rest of the sports cam market is simply dominated by gopro. The universal mount system is great and I've even seen things like amusement park rides and zip lines etc that already have a gopro mount attached so all you do is set your gopro on it and film away. No need for a helmet or anything.

Hmmm..well it seems go pro just has a bigger chunk of the market and it obviously appears to be hurting contour. I will say contour is kind of a one go camera. No battery access, can't change the settings unless it's plugged into a computer, can't watch your vids unless plugged into a computer etc. Some folks get turned off by that stuff!
