Epic and cool.

Curious what rules would you use for the helicopter? Shooting at it etc?

No shooting back at the million dollar helicopter will be allowed It's going to be there for about an hour running a preset flight path which includes hovering over known battle lines and strafing runs.

Thanks man! What is this ZoomCam you speak of? In HD you can see where the balls land (for the most part). I can scale in using adobe premiere pro if there is anything worth really zooming in on. He was buzzing the treetops so it's really not that far away.

The problem with using a regular action cam even in 1080hd or higher resolution is that the object you are shooting at is so far away that you can't see the paint hit, or the target you are shooting at. I play games with a full 1080HD camcorder with tons of optical zoom, and I play games with it set at 12 to 18x optical zoom, then I can zoom in more digitally, which lets you see the paint in the air and hitting your target at distances of up to 150 feet away, you can see the person at 300+ feet away, (but it is hard to see the paint at those distances).

Here is a build video I did for it.

Here is an example to show the differences between all action cams and a ZoomCam system.

Playing in the dark must be so creepy... I can't even imagine...


I wanted to try out some gear in a game, so I headed over to Paintball Junkeez on Saturday. Here is some ingame footage from two of the games.
