There's an on going debate between the GoProHD and ContourHD cameras. While the GoPro is having much success with it's recent sale price announcement (I know many of you swooped one up), some ContourHD fans might be happy to know there's a drop for this particular little POV cam. Normally running about $250 and then at times on sale for $199, ContourHD has even shaved off another $60 bucks from that sale price right now (full 1080p version). It's a cool little water resistant (not waterproof) camera if you're looking to start doing some bike helmet, car, or motorcycle mounting. If you want to go full waterproof, the optional case runs about $40 bucks, which is still keeps the overall total price under retail. Yes, it qualifies for Prime too which means free shipping and have it in two days (click here).
If you're an iPhone Video shooter, this Lensse Camera Stabilizer for phones is pretty fluid. (BTW that's not an iPhone. That's the Samsung Galaxy) I'm thinking it should be able to support my GoPro HD once i've added enough counterweights. The drilled brass socket for the Gimbal is smooth, but as other stabilizers like this the angle of rotation is limited. I'll need to really test the weight once my GoPro LCD Bacpac has come in, but it should be fine.

The Flip HD camera changed portable video cameras when it was first released. The convenience, quality, and price point made it very popular for Video bloggers and consumers who wanted a more portable solution to HD quality video. One of the things that I really didn't like was the tiny screen for playback. It sucked, but at least it has a screen. The GoPro HD Hero doesn't even have an LCD, but I still use it quite a bit for it's durability. Well Flip introduces it's newest HD camera called the Flip Side which opens up somewhat like a Nokia cell phone to playback and share your videos with a larger Touchscreen. (Yes, I did say TouchScreen). You can find the new Flip Side HD camera at Amazon or eBay at these prices.
