Replay or the Go Pro are the most popular options for a reason.

Not really true. Go Pro just has the best marketing and the Replay, being designed with paintball in mind, has been well promoted in the paintball community.

But as far as cameras (my opinion)

Gun Mounted camera: R7 Replay

Helmet Mounted Camera: Drift Ghost HD

Agreed with Soul6. I LOVE my Drift Ghost-S. I think the Replay is also a great cam specifically for paintball.

the go pro is heavier and bulkier than the R7.
image quality is disputable, but the R7 fits on
top of the barrel just perfectly and its so light
by itself (taped) that it will barely affect the
overall balance of your set up. other mounting
options might be different, but by itself the R7
is like it's barely there. easy to use too.

Only problem I have with the gun mounting is that from a 5 minute video you get 4 min and 15 seconds of bunker footage, dirt footage and shaky camera footage from movement. Virtually no one keeps the gun pointed up even half the time. It's just long videos watching the ground and listening to sounds.
I like camera mounts that allow me to relive the game from the players perspective. Not the barrels perspective (which typically isn't much).

Sorry....just had to get that out guys. Lol

Don't forget about the camera angle as well. I find myself turning my head a lot when watching gun mounted videos, lol. I love my R7 mini, but head mounting it gives much better video for all the reasons you pointed out.

I agree with you Soul, helmet mounted cams give the viewer
a much better "experience", thou it's always one-sided, as in,
if you're looking out of the right side of your bunker and your
camera is mounted on the left side of your "helmet", you get
just as much "useless" footage. not to mention that, thou I did
not try it myself I imagine having a camera hanging out of the
side of your mask must somehow unbalance/pull it to that side?

To me matters much more that the camera's position and weight
affects my set up and playing behavior as little as possible. Sure
I'd love to get some heroic epic footage of myself getting a 5-pac,
but only if capturing it does not get in the way of actually doing it.
I do see your point thou.

I've actually found the weight not to have affected me at all. Though truthfully I've only mounted a Drift HD to my paintball goggles (Grill). My cousin has the Contour mounted to his I4s and has felt any issue with the mask feeling unbalanced either.

Now as far as it being an issue if the camera is left side mounted and your leaning right you are absolutely correct. But I guess until someone creates a micro camera that can sit behind your lens and still capture 720p video at 60fps then we are always going to have some flaw that comes with any sort of mounting.

For me, since I prefer to shoot right side I have my camera mounted on the right. It does add to my profile and increase risk of elimination but it's a risk I'm willing to take to get good footage.

Unless they dont have one that fits your marker its better than a barrel mount.

In the meantime Ive seen lots of people just use electrical tapeti attach a camera to their barrel.

I don't understand the problem. You are going to get the same perspective either way.

probably a bit better actually. little less barrel in the frame and less shake from shot vibration/recoil. I've heard tho, that the R7 feedneck mount doesn't fit all feednecks. No idea how true that is or what feednecks it fits.

You'd get more barrel in the video not less.
And the barrel and feedneck do not vibrate/recoil independently.

I don't have any issue with how he wants to mount it. I just don't understand the need for a barrel mount when it comes with a feedneck mount that's going to give you roughly the same video. But to each his own

Gopro hero 3 or 3+ with 3+ case

I mount mine like this
I know what you're going to say, that its in the way. Well for me, it isn't. When playing, you look past it. I've been playing with it like this for over 6 months now, and haven't had any visibility issues.
It makes great video especially if you tilt your hopper a bit, because you are seeing exactly like you would in 1st person
heres what the footage looks like
