    New Greg Hastings R7 1080p Camera

    Who's seen it?

    Looks great and the feedneck clamping system looks like it works wonders. If you've been looking for an alternative between the Go Pro and Contour this might be the one for you. Here's the link if you haven't seen it yet.

    Yeah it is expensive. I do however like the fact that it's small and compact. I also like that the buttons are simple and easy to find especially when mounted on your mask. Everyone I know has either the GP or the Contour so to have something different to add to the mix is refreshing just the same.

    Former pro player turned scenario/woodsball guy. Does a lot of brand promotion under his name, Redz, and R7. Probably most famous for the set of video games produced under his name (Greg Hastings Tournament Paintball 1 & 2).

    Which I have never understood the reasoning for. A paintball video game is about as pointless as a fishing video game.

    LOL

    Eh, the video game got a lot of people interested in the sport, at least recreationally. Ironically, I'm awful at it.

    Lo

    For a video game based on Paintball it's actually not that bad. The graphics could use a serious overhaul. I'm not crazy for it but it was worth a rent. What's important my friend is that we had a good laugh.

    if this is meant as an alternative to the GoPro or the Contour its being done wrong. its almost twice the price of the basic contour and a little less than twice the price of the basic GoPro. the only advantage it has over either camera (as far as i can tll without actually having one to try) is that it is smaller. other than that the contour (which is also fairly small) and GoPro are better in every aspect that i can think of..... fail?

    It's not the gun, you just suck

    I have a few paraplegic friends who play paintball games cause they can't come out with me, I think they are a good idea cause then they get to share paintball stories with me as well.

    From the videos I have seen the image looks good but the amplified sound (due to feedneck mount?) makes the videos only watchable with the sound off. One video (shooting an Axe) was incredibly loud as you could hear every shot ring and echo through the mic. This might be an improvement that needs some investigating. I will never have any of these cameras but watching so many vids makes me pay attention.

    Ya i agree with gramps
    thats another problem the go pro has is that the mic is facing down....into the plastic case
    that holds the cam, well any movement that touches or moves the case you get a lot of feedback
    but still love my go pro just in editing programs i turn the volume down on the audio track

    also another thing, you need to hit record and then hit record again for sound.......why
    why make it that difficult? (i know not really that difficult but WHY???)lol

    its cool but you are only paying for the name, and mount

    I like how all the videos claims that it helps confirm your kills, yet I still have not been able to visibly see any paint break, which would be the only real advantage this would have over a go pro or contour.

    I guess it's cool that it has a feedneck mount, but I'll keep my contour.

    Yeah, there's definitely a lot of clanking when you're running, but it doesn't really bother me too much - add in shooting and yelling and you kinda don't notice it. I've also drilled out the sides of my GoPro cases for more/better audio. The holes I drilled were somewhat small, since I didn't want to open it up too much to paint... so I think it makes it better, but it's definitely not like night and day (not like going from the waterproof case to the non-waterproof case, haha).
