Damn, that is so much more expensive than I thought it would be.

The price is competitive with the Gopro HD Hero 2 and Contour line. Now to see if the quality is comparable. I may purchase one of these to test out.

A Contour is 200 dollars and the GoPro is under 200.... how is that competitive?

$30 is comparable to me. I think this R7 thing maybe worth it considering its lighter, placed in a better spot, and doesn't have field of view distortion.

EDIT: Is anyone else noticing that the HD versions should be compared to HD versions? hero2 and r7 are comps. Not the original heros...

The R7 is a barrel cam, the GoPro is a helmet and barrel cam.

99% sure you can mount an R7 on your mask. It comes with the mount and extra sticky pad things.

It has better picture, lighter, lower profile, mounts better and has more modes to shoot in. Why exactly would you take a GoPro anyday? Do you own one?

EDIT: sorry I forgot better audio quality too.

Compare this with the contour +.....its a no contest. If you want to spend $350-400 on a goggle cam, get that one.

Why?

Besides, $330 is quite different than $500.

edit: or do they have a cheaper version that's still same quality?

Ah, my apologies...i thought the contour + was 399...


"Compare this with the contourROAM, its basically the same camera, with GPS, the ability to use your phone as a viewfinder, for $30 less"

The only benefits you're getting from the Replay XD1080 are the HDMI out, and mic ports...which arent convenient, or useful in most cases....oh! and the ability to take pictures in intervals...which could be quite useful for some.

I agree with some here. The Contour+ is a much better deal in my opinion. Besides I'd rather have a camera mounted to my helmet then my marker.<br>
And if someone should ask, YES I do use a Contour+ myself. It belongs to my cousin. He uses it when we ball and I borrow it for when I would snowboard

The "R7" is GH's company that made the feedneck mount. The RePlay XD is the HD camera and it has all the mounts needed straight out of the box. not to mention an HDMI output and external mic option which the Contour+ has. It has all the modes any one would use for paintball. I have mine ordered already and I have been using Contour's cameras for years. This one has caught my eye before any GoPro has. I think the price for this is&nbsp;reasonable,&nbsp;considering any&nbsp;accessory&nbsp;such as a mount is around $30.

The reason I like GoPro over this is because it can be mounted on the top of a proflex and get a great angle. That's why I said in my opinion.

Honestly, this camera is useless to me. I use a contour, and am happy with the quality for 120. I would never spend 300+ on a barrel cam.

EDIT: sorry I forgot better audio quality too.

GoPro HD2 has a ton of modes as well, if im not mistaken more than this R7 camera.. such as time lapse and burst shot, and soon a remote function with a WiFi bacpac that can use your smartphone as a screen via free GoPro app. The R7 may be cool and I thought of picking one up specifically for paintball, but I also thought it would be cheaper. I'll stick with my GoPro. It also is a unfair comparison using the orignal GoPro instead of this BEAST

I use a Contour HD, and I am interested in this. Personally, I am not sure about the feedneck mount. I am still up for an under the barrel mount, which this will facilitate better than most of the other cameras out there.

But, what I keep wondering is two fold: 1) Battery replaceable or permanently mounted? If permanent, then it means that for big games, I would need a couple or three of these, whereas for the others, I can swap out batteries. Much cheaper for the others. 2) How does it take a hit from a paintball? Yeah, you can replace the lens cover easily enough, which it comes with, but what about getting goo in there, or how about actual impact from a paintball shooting at 300 fps, from about 10 feet away?

Sorry to necro this but does anyone know if a 'ring style feedneck' would include the luxes? I just want to know if I can mount it on a luxe, or a GT

Not sure. They said you can always attach it to the loader if it doesn't fit your feedneck.

I've heard no but you can always raise the feedneck out of the gun a little and attach it on the exposed part.
