Contour Video of our Ride

I fully admit to being a total geek when it comes to electronic gadgets. I bought a Contour Roam helmet camera and took a lot of ribbing from hubby and cousin's hubby, Randy. They were just howling with laughter - Barry almost fell off of Sarge and Randy almost split a gut. Oh well, I don't care. It takes terrific video's. This is a few minutes of our ride this past weekend. The video showed up in preview but not when I posted it so I am just putting a link.

Great Ride! Felt like I was right there enjoying the ride with you. Really like your helmet cam. Hope to see more rides.

Oooh, helmet cam, how fun! Look forward to seeing more footage.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

It is a terrific little camera!!! And it is TINY. Easy to use...and on and off switch and that is it as far as recording. Way way way better than my Flip camera because it does attach to the helmet so it is hands free. Woot!!! Love it!

How cool is that??
QOS, if you don't mind me asking, what would one expect to pay for a helmet cam, and where would you get it?
Thanks! :)

I got it from Amazon for $89 then had to buy a 32GB sim card from Amazon for $32. They were running a special on them before Christmas. I just checked Amazon and they are way more than that right now but keep checking Amazon for a deal.

I love it!!!
