Helmet Cam?

So I would like to get a helmet cam new or used in the area of around $150, unless this price has an end result of not worth it then I would go higher.

I would greatly appreciate any help, Ive looked at Contour, GoPro, Ion, Epic, Drift, Emerson and JVC to name a few, but being a first time helmet cam buyer I wanted your opinions on whats best for paintball.

Thank you all in advance.

He nick named the gun Reggie.

Polaroid XS100 Extreme Edition HD 1080p 16MP Waterproof Sports Action Camera + Mounting Kit Included: Amazon.ca: Electronics


I use it but its a tad of a hassle to get all the codecs you need since polaroid support doesnt help you find them, I when through loops to find what works. I posted a video in the video thread so you can see the sound is a bit echoy but I think thats from converting though. The only real gripe was that my mounts won't stick for some reason so I just zipped tied them to the helmet. Also it took a direct hit to the lens in the first recording that was made with it and it was working fine the rest of the day.

I second the Contour. Great camera, easy to work with, small design, and great quality video.

I own 3 of them actually... the ROAM, Original Contour, and the new Contour 2+

Thank you everyone, after reading reviews and then reading all the advise here I bought an used ContourHD for $69.99. It was a toss up between that and a GoPro.
My Watch list was full of helmet cams, now I can clear some space lol.
They all seemed good but "There can only be one", I meant I can only buy one lol.

Edit: It comes with Battery. USB cable. 4GB Micro SD Card, Mounting Disc Accessory. Goggle Mount and a eMotionCam Strap Mount.

The only upgrade would be the SD card. You'll see that it fills up quite fast in HD.
