Would you guys choose the gopro hero 3 black or the sony action cam?  Sony has a better lens but the lack of sound with 60 and 120 fps sucks.

It's all up to you.

Personally GoPro has been on top of it's game for awhile. I run a Hero2 and have no complaints what so ever.

I'm very happy with my Contour Roam HD cam, but if I had to choose between the GoPro and the Sony, I'd get the GoPro.

FWIW I (and Craig) use the Sony Bloggie.. the older one with the rotating lens.  Great little camera for around $50 used http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sony-bloggie-MHS-PM5-V-26-MB-Camcorder-Dark-purple-/140904427864?pt=Camcorders_Professional_Video_Cameras&hash=item20ce8ef158   

or $70 New  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sony-Bloggie-MHS-PM5-HD-Digital-Video-Camera-Retails-149-99-/170982384449?pt=Camcorders_Professional_Video_Cameras&hash=item27cf582341

On another note.. all of the reality TV shows and shows like The Amazing Race seem to use GoPro stuff when they are doing automotive shots.  (both internal and external fixed shots) If you pay attention it is crazy sometimes how many cams they have on a particular vehicle.  Often times 3-4 internal.
