GoPro Hero 3

Hey guys, i've got the gopro hero 3 black edition and have already worn it during paintball, but it has not yet been shot. I know the previous gopros can survive a hit but what about the hero 3. It's got a different case and everything and it is quite expensive. If yours has been shot and survived can you let me know as I really dont want to break it haha!
Cheers,
Jarryd

GoPro is excellent especially for paintball where you are going to be struck by a projectile. Unlike a Contour, a hard hit can break the outer lens, whereas the GoPro is protected within a clear case.

The other nice thing about a GoPro is the ability to go narrow view instead of wide view. Wide view playback has pincushion like a fisheye distortion and will give you motion sickness unlike narrow view which is undistorted and more natural video.

I'm not sure about the Hero 3 housing but my Hero 2 had taken a few shots to the screen before a ball broke the screen. I'm assuming it was from a little bit closer shot at 300 FPS.

Just had my hero2 shot up at castle conquest. Used it many times no problems, except a direct hit took out the screen, lens and mounting ring for the lens. I did however have a replacement plan from bestbuy, which got me a new hero3 and no cost.
