Goggles for a photographer? What do you use.

Just as the title suggests i am looking for goggles that work well for photographers. I have a friend who is a really talented photographer and talking she seems to be interested in doing some paintball photos but some of the masks i own are really hard for her to see through the viewfinder with any ease at all.

so my question for you is what masks do you guys use?
and is there any photographer specific mask available?

I've been using I3 Pros for most of the season, they work pretty well, along with Grillz and Proflexes. I'd avoid any E-vents masks; the lens is a lot farther from your face and it makes getting the entire frame in the viewfinder nearly impossible.

Delete thread->post in the faq, read the rules next time and you'll get more help.

And paintball photographers use all different kinds of masks, not one kind is more used than another in my experiences. I use pro flex's cus that what I own and they are comfortable.

I remember having some fairly crappy masks according to "agg" paintballers or whatever, and it worked out alright. I could only see one or two of my focal points, but over time I got used to it and could frame things near perfect to what I would want without seeing really anything thru those damn masks lol.

I use a profiler, fairly big lens, and flatter compared to a grill or i3. Plus new lenses are dirt cheap

I use grillz and they work well enough. You're never gonna really get the whole frame in there though, you just have to frame big and crop later.

i use proto axis pros and used to use i4s and you will never get all the points of your photo i normally take one shot then look at it and see if it looks right then continue shooting, sometimes i just crop after

Live view sucks. You need to learn to not have to rely 100% on the viewfinder.

Live view for pb = You can shoot pb fine with a mask on while looking through the viewfinder, you just have to get used to it.
