None of the action cams will show you what you are shooting at if they are more than 40 feet away...

I made this video to show the differences between action cams and zoom cams.

Personally, I use a Contour Roam for my helmet cam, mounted between my eyes on my visor. Which I think is the best position.

You can get the original roam for around $100 if you look around. It takes hits just fine as well. I have two of them (one for me, and one for my father in law).

To be able to SEE your hits, the only thing you can do at this point is get a custom 6mm lens or 12mm lens (I'd recommend the 6mm) for your action cam, rage cams sells them for the contour and go pro, but they void the warranty to install them...

I use a real video camera as my gun cam, and play with it zoomed in about 12x. It is the only system I have found that truly captures the hits when playing. Here is footage from Saturday.

I wish they made these for paintball though:

They are built into the mask, right between the eyes so it sees what you see as opposed to being to the left or right of your head

Sorry to necro this thread, but it is the top google result for "best paintball camera" so I figure there is still traffic coming to it, at least to view it.

I started a series providing advice and tips getting a paintball channel up and running. Episode one focused on cameras. Checkout the playlist below at the link below and episode one is embedded;
