i have both and do look the added options on the hero 2. You can control the FOV, you have 4 different LEDs on the housing to indicate that you're recording, and you can also take pictures a lot quicker ( I think you can do a 10 photo burst over 1 sec). Obviously, 11MP photos are better than 5MP. You also have some different frame rate options.

Besides that, another reason I got one is because is my original hero got a small scratch on the lens so there's sort of a spot on all my recordings.

Also, the HD2 has a glass lens instead of plastic. And the menu is much more user friendly. It also has an external mic port and an hdmi out port. WELL worth the extra bucks IMO.

I have the ContourHD but really really want to get the Hero2. Allan at Whoopies Cycles can get it for you for a good price. Fyi.
