The GoPro 1080 will take a single exposure...
The GoPro 1080 will take a single exposure automatically every 30 seconds, 60 seconds or every 5 minutes. Perfect for recording a long bike ride. Does the ContourHD have any such capability?
To the best of my knowledge the contour does not have any still picture capabilities like the gopro does.
I believe that the new GPS Contour has this capability but not the HD Contour.
