I have had my eyes on the GoPro line for aviation purposes, but I don't yet have the money to pull the trigger on that one. And even so there's the "fish-eye" thing going on, so I'm not sure if it's suitable for golf swings. Will the evolvr folks accept GoPro movies?
Both work. I've only used my iPhone, and if you look at beachcombers swing thread you'll see he uses the fish eye gopro camera. They've never got to the point where they told me that my problems are so subtle that I need a faster camera. ;)

Both are fine. The higher the speed the better, but 30 FPS is fine.

 

Just be as careful as possible about your alignment and camera height. And use good lighting if possible.

Seriously, I've begun work on keys 4 and 5 this week. The swing seems very repeatable and the contact is very good. What it feels like is my hands are coming down on a straight line from the top of the backswing to the impact point beyond the ball (inside out). This may not really be the case, but that's the feel. I'm driving the hands down with as much wrist cock as possible. Somehow, the clubhead releases and makes good contact just about the time I start rotating my shoulders. I'm not sure of the sequence because of how fast it happens. If my hands and clubhead are aligned correctly, the ball is on a good flight path - sometimes with a right to left curve but mostly straight.

 

I know this should be in the "My Swing" thread, but I wanted to reply to cipher's post. I'm trying to be cautiously optimistic, but I think this may be a swing I need only apply incremental changes to. I still need to improve key #2.

 

To the OP, there was nothing easy about getting to this point. What everyone suggested was to work one key at a time and that seems to be working so far.
