Hey so my birthday is this Sunday so I decided to treat myself and buy a camera. Is the Contour HD still the best camera? (not interested in a Go Pro, profile is too big)

I would suggest looking into the Greg Hastings R7 camera. That camera is BEAUTIFULLY designed, and has almost no front profile.

I want the best quality camera that is not as big as a Go Pro, how does the quality of the R7 compared to the Contour HD?

The thing about mounting a camera to the gun is unless you are playing speedball and your gun is up all the time the video will need a lot of editing. Make sure you have some software to do it.

I would stick with the contour considering the R7 costs almost twice as much... Sure theres a neat-o mount for the R7 but I don't think that's worth the cost difference...

Get the Contour. If you really want to mount the camera to your marker, there are barrel mounts for the Countour as well, the R7 isn't the only camera that can mount on your marker.
