I always keep extra clear uv filter lens caps in my vest pockets.....that way, you can change one out in a safe spot on the field if necessary due to splatter or a direct hit.

Also, those little alcohol wipes are quite handy for cleaning up paint. The biggest problem with paint on the side of a high quality lens is that it gets in where the lens turns and adjusts....if that isn't kept clean, after a time, it tends to not adjust so easily.

OOOhhh, shiny things.......

Check out dive shops and boat stores. Buy a underwater camera/video camera case. The entire camera is covered, water/paintball tight and the picture quality is not hampered so the pics/video does not come out fuzzy. You may be able to find one made for your camera/video camera.

your local camera shop should have some rain sleeves/socks. they usually come in 2 packs and are dirt cheap. thin plastic bag thats shaped to fit over your rig, then they have a pull string end to tighten around the lens hood.

Underwater cases are impractical. Kata covers or inside-out bags is where its at, lol.

Also, get a screen cover.
