I am possibly going to buy a Contour Roam camera and I am planning to use it with the Nummech barrel mount. Nummech also offers a lens shield. So my question is, is the lens shield necessary or will it be fine if it gets shot without a lens shield?

Replacement lenses are $5. I wouldn't bother.

Wow, thanks! Yeah at that price, its definitely not worth paying $25 for a lens shield when I could replace it for $5.

It is worth it because if just the lens takes a hit there are cases of components inside getting knocked loose.

^ So your saying I should get it. I've thought about that too, because if the lens like shatters then all of that paint and the impact of the ball hits the components. So I may buy it.

Actually I have been looking for a while and people say things like "I took a direct hit to the camera from 10 feet away and it didn't leave a scratch." I don't know if I should buy the lens shield or not now.

Just because theirs didn't break from one paintball doesn't mean yours won't from 1... or 10. You don't know what happened after they wrote that review/comment. I will put it like this, if a shot to the lens DID break it, would you be willing to spend $25 to fix it rather than buy a whole new camera?

Yeah, when you put it that way it makes sense. Thanks, Playdoh, I think I'll buy it when I get the camera!
