I have two of them, for my helmet cam (and my father in laws helmet cam).
This is what I'm already considering.

The Sony is a bit smaller than any of the Contour's, and for $270, you not only get a wireless connection to an iPad, iTouch, or any Android device, but you also get 120 frames per second at 1280x720p.
Only issue is that I have to stay in the bounds of the money I have after I sell a certain cheap marker.

I'll definitely be looking into these.
