Both of them create QuickTime .mov files containing a H264 video track and audio encoded in AAC format. You can check camera's full tech specs comparison at Compare Contour Cameras

Failure modes

The causes of failure reported by ContourHD users needing to repair files are:


The damaged files cannot be opened because recording did terminate abruptly: While the media (video and audio) is present and not corrupt, the index and header of the movie indicating what the data means, is not present. Repair consists in reindexing the movie.
Due to recording mechanism, last seconds of action may not have been recorded.


Damaged files from Contour cameras are detected as "Mobile / Point and Shoot", and as such have an affordable pricing. See Pricing Chart.
