We all know that video has taken a huge role in sports. We golfers are the athletes that have utilized video the most, for swing breakdown and improvement. However, golfers are going away from the traditional video camera for video. Players and teachers are using iPhones and iPads to do a majority of their filming.
Why?? Everyone is already carrying around their phones in their pockets. Plus, with the advancement in technology, the camera quality on an iPhone is just as good if not better than the average video camera. It is so easy to pull out your phone, take a video, and look at it later on your computer... we all do it!
There is only one problem we face when taking video with our iPhones, especially if you are using it for swing analysis. Realistically, there no proper way to set it up. You have two options, ask a friend, or figure out a makeshift stand off your golf bag or cart. Both of these are realistic options but, they do not ensure the safety of your phone or the quality of the video. (human eror, shaky video, falling off your bag or cart) If you have experienced this, then you have to check out this new product:
ProtoSports has created a device that allows you to connect your iPhone with an alignment rod, in order to set up a mono pod camera base for video practically anywhere on the golf course. We know that your average teacher, or player is going to buy a tripod for video using the iPhone. There is really no need for it at all. The holster is simple, easy, lightweight, and portable. Not to mention it is cost effective. You now have a stand that you can take with you anywhere. It sets up in seconds, and you are utilizing tools that you already own. You can take videos on your phone, email them to friends, or upload them straight to the computer in no time at all.
