GoPro Hero 5 Black for Paintball

Hi Guys, 

 

I hope you can help me with this question I have, which is the best Housing for GoPro Hero 5 to play paintball? Is it enough with the water proof housing? Any ideas or suggestions are welcome, thanks in advance

Re: GoPro Hero 5 Black for Paintball

@luisxiv - For impact sports like paintball, I'd suggest using a SuperSuit at a minimum: https://shop.gopro.com/accessories-2/super-suit-%C3%BCber-protection-plus-dive-housing-for-hero5-bla.... Even then, depending on the speed the paintballs fly, even that might not be enough, so you'll want to be careful to make sure the camera itself isn't damaged.
