I much prefer the Contour over the GoPro. My reason...it's much lower profile. Plus, if you want to wear a giant toaster on your helmet, I've got a few in the garage you can have for free. It's save you the $300+ for GoPro!
Haha. Ok, in all honestly, the new Contour has a 170 degree Field of view and if you have an Android of iPhone cell phone, you already own the wireless viewfinder.
The best part? AFF instructors like the Contour better when you wear it on AFF levels 3 and above. Most DZ's won't let you jump it until level 3, but I jumped mine on AFF 1 because I'm badass like that. Don't worry though, I have a private pilot's license too so I'm totally badass at skydiving too.

IMO, the Contour has the best color rep, GoPro has the best compression for pushing around in post. The Drift...not even gonna go there. it and the Muvi cams have pretty weak compression, and the color is very over processed. For Youtube vids and whatnot...they're all just fine. If you want to deliver a tandem or AFF C video...they're not great.
