Looks great 850 TR!! I also like the footage filmed from this position!


Here is a really good comparison between the Epic and Midland.

These two clips where shot at same time. Under same lighting from same position on right side of handle bars. The Midland is on a 4" piece of 1/4x20 threaded rod. The Epic in a 1/16" flat steel mount. Both quite rigid.

The first is the Midland second Epic.

Here is pops Midland:

I'm not knocking other cameras...but I would vote for the GoPro HD. I've been using one in my truck for a year or more and the quality and frame rate are GREAT. I just ordered another case so I can mount it on the bike. I'm just stuck deciding 'where' to put it.

My first thought was on the front in the little spot next to the winch. I figured that this would give it better protection from branches and brush, BUT I couldn't resist ordering the LCD 'BacPac' attachment too. Admittedly it would be pretty cool/convenient to be able to see what your shooting while out and about, so, if I use the BacPac I'll probably go for a handle-bar/pod mount...dunno. That's my weekend project, I'm sure I'll figure something out.

The only issue I can think of with the GoPro is that it can be a little finicky about memory cards. I use a Patriot 32GB SDHC and haven't had a single problem. They've posted recommendations on SD cards on their support site (Frequently Asked Questions About GoPro HD HERO Camera & Accessories) stick with a name brand and you'll be fine.

Also, make sure you have the latest firmware update for your camera (GoPro Customer Support - Contact Us for Knowledge & Instruction) as they always seem to add new features with each new release.

I finally made it out on the Sportsman with my Contour HD. It came with a helmet mount that uses the goggle strap (which I like for smoother video). The lasers that shine out the front to help with alignment are a nice feature, and the large sliding "record" switch leaves no doubt that you are catching the action. The only down side compared to the GoPro is the narrower field of view (135 degrees verses 171, I think). Again this video is shot at 640 X 480 to save memory. So far I am very happy with this camera!

I did some test runs with the GoPro this weekend to figure out where to mount it...I ended up going with my first thought, next to the winch.

Yes the GOPRO is the one to get... We will see how the funds are when the time comes. I have been watching EBay.

I used the contour today, 170 field of vision easy to set up and you can view it from your android via bluetooth, when i downloaded the video for editing i couldnt believe the quality of the video,(it was far better than even I thought it would be) i got a buddy rolling with the gopro...good cam great video aswell but the contour was much easier to use, easier to site in and easier to view while setting it up, for me its hands down...Contour, the thing even comes with an internal and external mic hook up on a lapel mic.( and the audio was great).

The following is a video made using one ContourHD and two GoPro cameras.
The RZR has a GoPro, as well as the the one mounted on top of the helmet. The side mounted cam is the Contour.

Of the three, the GoPro in the RZR seems to have the best picture. I think that is at least partly due to the location it is mounted (out of the sun and dust). It is worth noting that due to a small memory card (2Gb), the Contour footage was filmed at a resolution of 640 X 480.

Either way, I don't think you can go wrong with either camera.

Great video Phil! I liked the way you combined the footage so it flows like a motion picture. Like when the guy on the can-am is stuck, you see it from afar, then his perspective, then afar again. Good tunes never hurt either.
