I film paintball all the time here in the US for a company called Derder, and let me tell you. You WILL get shot. No matter what you do, you and your camera will take hits.

But the good news is this, paintballs really wont do anything to hurt your camera. My XL2 has been through it all and is still going strong. Stick a UV filter on the lens and your element will be protected fine. I would def advise you to get a rain cover that covers the entire body and lens of the camera. And as stated before, I have found that loose is better. Other than that, I wouldnt worry too much about it. If you are really worried about the impact on your camera body, just wrap the cameras in some extra padding before putting the rain cover on.

Hope that helps.
