Red Bull Rampage 2014: Tom Van Steenbergen's Qualifier Run POV
GP, Sony, etc all suffer from the same thing which is the perspective is always going to be so much different from real life. While it's not the real issue behind it all, I do agree that some amount of shake, like after a hard-landing gives it a raw feel, it's just the small frequency chatter that is absolutely annoying. I think GP should have physical stabilization as well, as all it does is unfortunately shake. But happy medium imo would be if Sony could slightly restrict the amount of stabilization and I think it would be perfect.

CONTOUR Announces ROAM3 Action Camera
Yeah, the Contour news has been popping up here and there and from what I've seen, the head of Contour disbanded the company, left all the employees out without any support (this all happened super quick), ultimately everyone had to leave in an unceremonious fashion without proper compensation or documentation. New Ceo comes in, gives a press-release, says something to effect of, "Hey, we're back. We're going to set things straight." after that, not much news. I'm assuming many of the employees that were vital are back or in the process of being recalled, and things are starting to roll along. But moral of the story is that give it a little bit of time and the new management will shine through, whether they're back on game and decide to take a good platform to a whole another level in-line with competition, or, provide mediocrity and that "buy our shit, for little as investment on our-end" kind of mentality. Will be interesting to see what happens.

CONTOUR Announces ROAM3 Action Camera
That was former Mgt. which was extremely irresponsible and outright wrong. This is a new team/ceo of the company. The platform and basic building blocks are already there with the Contour. If they had a great aggressive team beforehand the fall, they could have easily been one of the top competitors with GP. If these current guys are serious, they will easily include new sensors for higher rates and better low-light adjust-ability, better internal software, etc soon.

Day Two Randoms - Interbike 2014
Sony is good but offers different characteristics over the Gopro, but the body design is just simply more logical in almost every aspect except for a chest-mount. Sony as whole is bigger than Gopro, but it's a matter of how much resources are being committed/technology + marketing, the experience in years GP currently has solely focused on action cams, and it's reign over the action cam market just due to the fact there has been literally no one competing against them. Maybe that will change for good within the next year or so. @ Nismo, The way the seattube is designed on the 951, with those two non-seperate joints that branch to the seattube isn't practically possible to make with a single tube of alloy tubing. 2 separate sides-halves of the tube can be hydroformed though then just welded together. The weld itself is usually 'stronger', but the area next to the weld (w/ proper heat treatment) is technically 'weaker' therefore possibly more spots of potential failure. Obviously less welds can be more simple and better, but there is only so much you can do without welding. Imo, while it looks nice, i think it's pretty unnecessary and only making it harder for the welder and mfr process. More welds does somewhat allow more chances for mess-ups during fab..and with loose QC.. Santa Cruz has got things dialed and always has. Never do they release a bike that has had durability problems. Always proper design, real testing, and focus on making a solid bike, rather than a throwaway bike.
