This is a great camera. It's very small, and it can take a hit. There really is no better camera for paintball due to its size, durability, and resolution.

You get multiple resolutions, timed still shots, live HDMI streaming, multiple mounting options, and optional accessories like external mics, battery packs, and view screens. The included mounts allow for helmet, feedneck, and barrel mounting (using 2 mounts stuck together).

The internal battery will give you about 2 hours of recording time, which is great for a day of speedball. An external battery pack can give you up to 6 hours of HD video for the scenario player. You can use up to 32GB micro SD cards, but make sure to use class 10 for recording speed.

These retail for around $400, but you can find a deal if you shop around. I got the full kit (normal retail NIB with no paintball mounts) for $200.

4 stars for reliability because it has compatibility issues with some SD cards.

The major con is the price of accessories. An external battery and the necessary adapter will run you around $100. Some of the mounts run upwards of $50. Still, the things included in the package are more than enough to get you recording your kills.

Pros: Light, small, nice picture quality
Cons: 4GB card stock is too small
Let me start by saying I was never a big fan of capturing footage of myself playing, always thought it was a bit too much, especially the GoPros being such a big hard square-ish target. I've recently found the Replay XD for a great price brand new on ebay (there are still some for that price). I couldn't resist and ended up buying one. The only downside is that it's not the model that comes with the feedneck attachment, but I wasn't gonna ruin my carefully studied gun color-scheme by adding a plain black feedneck to it anyways, so it was basically just what I wanted.

Great package, brings all you need to get it running and then some. Several mount options, a (small) 4GB card and reader, chargers, stickers to mount and a nice carrying case too. Leaves nothing to be desired. The camera itself is very light and small, the casing seems very very sturdy, like rotor-bomb-proof kinda sturdy. Can't imagine a paintball ever causing any damage to it.

There are several options for frame rate and window size, and although the controls are kinda small and cramped into the back of the camera, it's pretty easy and intuitive, once you understand the button layout. It's pretty easy to switch from full 1920x1080 30fps to a 720p 60 fps, or even the photo mode. The quality of the picture is pretty decent, not sure it's "broadcast quality", but surely it's more than enough to capture your paintball heroics with no problem.

The camera actually has an HDMI output that allows you to plug in straight into your TV or any other monitor (R7 offers their own monitor option) and, surprisingly, it does play the recorded files without the need of any other devices. Very convenient.

So I thought that mounting the camera was going to be an issue, and I acquired an aftermarket mount from ebay to attach it directly to my barrel, but turns out the mount is heavier than the camera itself. I did not want to just tape it, so I did a combination of Velcro stickers and and velcro straps, and it seems to be holding up fine, the camera barely moves (if at all) during normal gameplay.

Operation is pretty simple and achieved with only two "external" buttons, one on-off and one to start/stop recording. The LED lights that tell you if it's on and/or recording are kinda hard to see in bright sun light, but the cam has a vibration feature to let you know when it's on or recording. very easy to manage even with the pre-match procedures.

As I'm using it, the camera barely seems to affect the balance of my set up at all. With the proper feedneck mount it has to be heavier than how I have it, but maybe it doesn't affect balance as it sits further behind than my barrel set up.

I'm not sure if this is the best camera for everyone. For me, that wanted a dedicated barrel cam it's just perfect. I think its shape, size and weight gives it a severe advantage over the go pros, thou an argument can be made for picture quality. Anywhere you can fit a go pro, a Replay XD will fit better.

I recommend it thou. Not sure that full MSRP is justifiable, especially the ones with specific feedneck mounts that are pricier, but for what I got it and the results I'm getting, it's pretty hard to beat, in my opinion. If you're looking for a versatile, light and small camera, this is pretty good. If you want a barrel cam, then this is it, it's just perfect.
