Protecting a DSLR While Shooting Paintball

Just have it encase in a cube and have the back side pointing towards you so you can adjust controls and press the shutter button.

Both my D3 and D7000 have taken incredible amount of beating with no issues. Yes I'm talking about direct hit left and right.
I would get a rain cover though. Saves time in cleaning.

You will be shot a lot, trust me. I've been doing it for three years.
And I've been hit a lot in my camera, it works just fine. Something like a 7D is pretty rugged.
Just use a raincover or nothing at all.

I may look into it. I'm going to just do a rain cover of sorts for now.

Take it from me, you absolutely don't need anything special for your camera body. i read in another thread you're using a 7D, which is what i shot with, so im speaking from experience.
my personal recommendation:
take your neckstrap off your camera, get a storm jacket for your lens, and keep a hand on your camera while you're shooting. thats what i did my entire photography career with paintball and it worked like a charm.
the problem with putting a big box or case around your camera is 2 fold. 1. you'll find it clumsy and im betting you'll miss quite a few shots. 2nd, and most importantly, you'd look fucking ridiculous.
