We were also talking about the GoPro; store dude says low light performance is way better on the Black, and that the brief specs don't tell the whole story on Black vs Silver vs White. The Silver being the Hero2 renamed and likewise the White is the Hero1. Hmm. Anyway not being much of a video fan I'm saving my money for now.
That is a bit disappointing - I saw an online comparision of the Black vs the Contour2 and two other action cameras. The low light performance of the Black was waaay better than the Contour2.
Initially I was really only interested in a camera that would not commit suicide after being stuck on my bike for an extended period, and good vibration correction was a big plus as well. When I saw the low light performance of the Black I was expecting to get that on the Silver.
