That doesn't look like its much different than a contour camera, which just went out of business about a month ago because their sales just couldn't match GoPro. Yea the GPS thing is kinda cool but you're paying for a feature that not everyone needs. In my option, I hated the design of the gopro originally but once you strap it to your chest or your head without a helmet you'll appreciate the small cube design a lot better than the oval/ tube design of the new Garmin or how the Contour cam was. I don't think anyone will be able to catch up with GoPro at this point as far as marketing and product quality.
You need to update the firmware and you need to contact gopro so they can hopefully figure out what kind of issues you are having.Contour is my main camera I have had nothing but trouble from gopro. Contour is gone so drift or garmin it is.
That is usually a GoPro with this harness:Looks interesting. I see a lot of reality shows using a camera that fits on straps in the middle of your chest. What camera is that?
