Headcam view showing highlights of a day out at Mayhem Paintball. 'The dirty 30' is a group of mates who meet several times a year to play amateur woods ball style paintball. We aim for 30 or more people so we can split the group and shoot at each other - The objective of making this video was to give people who've never played a better sense of what its like to encourage them to come and give it a go - The video is blurry because its a standard definition feed from a motorbike-camera, duck taped to the helmet, recording to a tape in an old camcorder that's bouncing around in a bumbag. It was then digitised using free MS editing software and the upload to YouTube further degraded it. Additionally, the lens gets paintspray all over it and in the heat of the moment, giving it a regular wipe is not very front of mind. At the end of the vid when the screen goes yellow, this is actually a direct hit to the camera - the next 10 mins of gameplay as we stormed the barn were superb but not useable.

When the piggy bank allows, we'll invest in a Full HD helmet cam with a built-in, waterproof mic and a single wire back to a solid state recording device. This would make it easy to alternate the camera between helmet and gun mounted positions and between different players. We'd also pick a different kind of lens as the one we used makes everything seem further away and you can hardly see the opponents getting shot - If you look really closely at 1:20 you can see a fantastic dive for cover which would have looked great on better kit.
