For the GoPro, I find its usually more useful in timelapse model.
ie taking a photo every second, or maybe every 5 or 10 seconds, depends 
on what you are surveying and how fast you are moving.

The still photos are usually much better quality and higher resolution 
than frames from the video. So more useful for reading housenames etc.
Plus its easy to geotag all of the photos (I use GeoSetter), then load 
them into JOSM.
