 am i the only one questioning the quality of the go pro footage in this vide? it goes all pixely and distorted a lot and even when it isn't the quality isn't to fantastic? is that and editing problem or is the footage like that off the cam, thanks i wouldnt mind feedback from gopro owners as i look to make my decission between contour and gopro in the next week

not looking to argue, just to learn, thanks guys

 Its pinkbike, if you watch theyre youtbe videos in 1080p its great
  • + 1
 yeah, but most of this stuff is probably shot in 1280x720 so they can get 60fps. and pink allows you to upload 720p HD, (correct me if i am wrong) so is it not a compression issue?

 Left Coast is sorta correct. The pinkbike player is set up for high traffic, and more than likely, you were watching the video in Standard Def. There are an enormous amount of variables that make a video look good or mediocre when it is online. So many in fact, that I won't even go into it here....you should just sign up for a video class at your local college. This video was compressed at 5000kbps, 720p, 30fps. That is the lowest quality compression that you can call "HD" for web. It allows the video to play seamlessly off sub-standard internet connections. If you go to Vimeo for instance, our videos are uploaded there at much higher bit rates, but you need to have a big computer with a fabulous connection to play them......however, the videos are in FULL HD. This is not a Contour vs GoPro thing. Both cameras shoot 1080 HD video, and each camera has a set of features that offer the user a menu of shooting styles. Each camera has its merits, it is your job to educate yourself, and choose the product that works best for your mission.....be it GoPro, VioSport, Sony or Contour. Enjoy the ride!
