I have one and used it once. It is more for action shots than photo shots for MLS or marketing.  Once I finially figured out the best way to attach it to my car, and not show the hood in the video, I was okay with it.  Still, I have only used it once.  That was an expensive lesson.

I have a GoPro but found that by using a Gimbal with my new Iphone, it does a much better job.  I like to use GoPro when I am doing a Youtube video of a community.  But, I think I am going to use my Iphone with the gimbal for that as well.

I've been thinking about purchasing a GoPro to use with a drone. I'm obsessed with videos on YouTube that utilize both for real estate and I think the video tours come out so much better than non-drone videos.

Honestly, I use a good photographer to get pictures for listings. Then for Facebook live and Periscope stuff, I use my iphone, which is perfect and has great photo quality.  I think if you're planning to use the GoPro for say a YouTube post, it might be okay, but they have wide angle lens on those because of their purposes, and that creates an unwanted distortion from time to time.  For video I have a real video camera (small, but great resolution), and I use that YouTube stuff.
