Acknowledge the point about aiming; but here are two things to consider:
1) ANY of the decent HD 'mobile' video cameras reduce vibration sensitivity by virtue of the capture method used. Keep in mind I'm specifically talking about vibration
here, not 'camera shake' (more commonly associated with still cameras).
2) 'Aiming' these cameras is nearly irrelevant because of the very wide field of view - the standard setting for both the Contour and the GoPro yields a 170 degree field, very nearly 'fisheye' wide angle.
I'll stay with my earlier conclusion.
