Garmin VIRB Elite — $400
The newest GoPro competitor to hit the market, Garmin's VIRB takes capturing solid action footage a couple steps further. For one, it's equipped with an accelerometer, altimeter, and high-sensitivity GPS to not only include data you might want to glean from certain shots, but can also set it to "ski mode", which will automatically film your run (recognizing your altitude/movement), and skip capturing the boring lift line. Also, unlike GoPros, it has a built-in Chroma display to preview
epic fails footage, and sports an easier-to-operate-on-the-move sliding on/off switch.
