A Powdery Plunge

Lots of fresh snow here in Telluride, Colorado, where I'm taking a little lift-served vacation. Video is helmet cam footage from the ContourHD 1080p. I upgraded from the 720p ContourHD to check out the new model. Interestingly, after a week of testing the camera, I decided I like the 720p better. There's just too much shutter roll in the 1080p mode (you can see that here as distortion in the treetops whenever I hit a bump). Additionally, the 1080 mode uses a narrower view angle, which increases the effects of camera shake. I'll get a full review of the 1080p ContourHD up in the next week or so.
