Best Way to Film a Swing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

As I was at the range earlier today, I was thinking about videotaping my swing to create a "My Swing" thread, but I thought of something important: I have no clue of the best way to go about this. I have an iPod with a camera that I use for music, as well as a digital camera, and my instructor uses an iPad occasionally to show me something in my swing. However, I'm unsure of whether I should use the iPod or the camera, as well as which angles are best to record from. Would a video from a front angle and directly behind be most useful, or should you offset the camera slightly either direction? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There are two most commonly used methods for videoing a swing.

 

Forward view:  Basically, if you are set up on the golf ball you would have the camera directly opposite of you with with the lens obviously pointing toward you.  You want the camera close enough to make your body as large as possible but far enough away to incorporate all aspects of your swing.

 

Down the Line.  If you were set up on the ball the camera would be to your right and the lens  would be pointing down the target line (Down range).  Again, you want the camera close enough to make sure your body is as large as possible but far enough away to incorporate all of your swing.
