I am looking into getting a camera to paintball with. Im planning on going with a barrel mount (on top) and was just looking for paintball related opinoins on the go-pro, contour roam, roam 2 and any others. Im assuming i should go with some sort of case. I would prefer to keep the budget at $200-$225. a few years ago i made a movie for my cinemetography class in a high school so i have a rough idea of editing, but is there any software specific to the different cameras? Any help would be much appreciated

there is the r7 replay made specifically for paintball but it may be out of your price range, beside that for barrel cam i would probably go with a contour for the profile. I'm a fan of tubular camera's. the contour camera's record to .mov and .mp4 files so any software that can manage those will work for editing, there is nothing specific for contour and the same with the gopro's
There are 10 types of people in this world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.

i have looked into the r7 but i just cant seem to find a justifiable reason on spending 2-3 times more on that than the roam. The only real improvement i have been able to find is the fact that its more rugged and no case should be needed.

Also I don't like barrel cams.
Find yourself a used GoPro hero 2.
what dont you like about barrel cams, i know you wont get to see all the action, but you will get to see the exact line of sight to the target.
i dont like the helmet camera mount because if you mount in on the side you will lose some video if i only partially peak out from behind a bunker and im not really sold on mounting it on top of the mask.
