I used them in race cars. they work great there, they take beating. Saw one hit the track and still work after about a 50mph fall.

what do you want to use it for?

I use mine for skiing and mountain biking mostly. Works great for that for the most part. My only complaint is performance in bright light (like when riding into the sun). I would live if they had an option to run a polarizer filter on it.

I haven't used the new high end one, but was thinking of picking one up for a second angle, and possible concert use since it works much better in low light.

A friend of mine used one for this:

I'm pretty sure it's the black and white footage from the side of the stage.

I picked up a hero2 in december. i like it a lot and its much smaller than you would think. There's no LCD screen but ours came with a wifi pack that allows you to use your smartphone, with an app, to control the camera. You can buy different cases like a dive housing or a skeleton housing where you can have access to mic-in on the unit. You can also do time-lapses upto a minute interval, although I have not tried time lapses on the gopro yet.

The hero3 black looks very nice because of its extended filming modes but this model will set you back $400. The advantage to this model is wifi is built in and its smaller than hero2 models and it includes a remote to control it.

it can even be used in taping: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sI14uCX8msI

I love go-pro's. They are a hoot! Both for outdoor adventures, but also concert shooting.

As someone said above, if you don't have the lcd or wifi bacpac then you have to guess a bit when you aim it, but as the field of view is so wide, most often it works out.

I used a variety of cams for these two videos. Flipcams (on the sides) Drift HD (on the drums) Panasonic GF1 (behind the drums) two go pros (towards the brass and on the keyboards) and the two big main cams.
(yep, 8 cams...and one cameraman!)

KRSB- What video software do you use? I sort of like the multiple video streams on the same page at times. I have never seen that in Sony Vegas.

I like this style of editing, have never found a client that liked it

@ Coloartist you can do it in Sony Vegas with Keyframing

Here are a couple of vids I did using keyframing in Vegas:

1 show : 8 cameras
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-HCE4Cb4PY

26 cameras : 1 song
http://vimeo.com/1837623

And for those of you liking Gopros for concert shooting, their are MUCH better choices in that price range, like a sony Hx9v, go pros are great for action shots in daylight, not so great for concerts in low light

Thanks. I will try it. I don't like it all the time, but I think it would be nice to stick in a video once in a while.

Sorry to be slow to reply.

Editing was in Final Cut Pro

It's true that not everyone in the band loved the edit with all the boxes over the second edit which was a little more traditional, but I managed to argue that we go that route as it hid all the different color balances. Also it hides a bit that there is no camera movement in most of the cameras. 

Not sure how the sound mix was done. They captured the monitor mix so grabbed all the instruments individually and then remixed it adding a little atmosphere from the audio from my main cam

Yes, shoestringconcerts is right, the GoPro's do need a lot of light. It's a good point.

All in all a lot of fun considering I had 24hr notice to get ready so really was just flying by the seat of my pants for the shoot.
