    HD170 Stealth & GoPro stills.

    I'm thinking about getting an HD170 Stealth and would like to see some stills (preferably interior) from both the GoPro & HD170 Stealth. If you got 'em, post 'em.

    Thanks!

    I have both, but no examples to show for still shots. If indoor still shots are your priority, the stealth will be better as you can control the exposure (through menu settings) more so than with the GoPro. Neither one will be great in indoor low light situations.

    Stills (interior or exterior) aren't a priority, just the best way for me to analyze the quality.

    not interior, but side by side comparison (drift HD 170 same as stealth except for 60fps). Again, if indoors/low light is important, the stealth is gonna be the best bet between gopro/stealth. contour has light level adjustments too though.

    Will send you a PM shortly - we can set up a side by side test in the office for you so that you can compare the stills. My guess is the Drift HD170 Stealth is going to come out on top - as a few others have mentioned it has much better low and medium light performance for video when compared to the GoPro HD which is definitely optimized for bright light.
