Recommended Video Apps?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I hope this is the correct forum to ask this: 

 

Can anyone recommend an app that will allow me to slow down my swing on video that I can use on my iphone? What are the pros using to slow down the swing when they analyze a student? 

 

Thanks!

Theres an app for iPhones named Ubersense. It was free when I downloaded it and its pretty good. You can watch your swing in slow motion or frame by frame. You can also save the videos and keep a note for each one.

Video is rubbish compared to a launch monitor as swings which "look" like an out-to-in swing as an example can actually be fine. For example:



Also I'd say that generally pros don't use a phone to video their swing I'd say. The iPhone 5S has slow motion capabilities which are better than nothing but even that footage isn't a patch on a decent camera (search the forum for "Casio" to get specific model info).

Having said all of the above I personally use the GASP software on my iPhone for swing feedback.

And a launch monitor can be mostly redundant when you get to see the ball fly. :)


Geez. "Rubbish," you say, eh? :P

The 5S is fine. 120 FPS in HD is pretty good.

 

 

http://analyzrgolf.com/ is good if you've got a Mac. I don't do much on my phone.

Thanks. I'll check that out.

I have an iphone 5S and recorded it in slo mo, but wasn't able to transfer it to my computer. I might eventually look into a casio camera as I'm starting to record my swing a lot and it might be worth it.

Ouch, that's a bit expensive. I do have a Mac, but might stick to the a cheaper app.

I'll second the recommendation on Ubersense. I mostly work with a camera and Analyzer but have used Ubersense when it's more convenient. Does a good job and has plenty of bells and whistles for a free app. My phone only does 30fps but that's fine for most of what I'm working on.

Cool. I just downloaded Ubersense and will play with it tonight. 

 

Thanks everyone for the feedback!!!!

There are two ways to do it:

1) Plug your phone into your computer and launch the "Image Capture" application.

2) Dropbox can automatically sync your photo roll over WiFi to "Camera Uploads".

$59 (and thats without using any of the coupon codes) is expensive? Shhhhh. Don't tell the thousands of customers who bought… :-)

Ahh, didn't know that about the iphone and mac. I'll give that a try. thanks. 

 

$59 isn't bad, but it's more then free!

To be clear, Ubersense doesn't hold a candle to Analyzr, not even close but it is handy in a pinch or when you just want to take a quick look at the range without bothering with your laptop.

Start with Ubersense but save up for Analyzr. Well worth it.

I like the V1 Golf app, only one I've tried really. There is a free version and I think a $5 version. You can do frame by frame and slow motion, draw lines and some other stuff. You can also compare two of your videos side by side, or dowload a pros swing to compare. Decent app overall.

I used Ubersense last night--it's very helpful and what I was looking for. Thanks for the rec. I'll likely purchase Analyzr in the future, but this will work for now.

You're welcome.

My pro turned me on to Ubersense. It works well for what I was looking for. I also have a GoPro that I have not set up and used yet for my swing.

Attaining smooth slow motion will depend on the capability of the camera, not the capability of the app. The iPhone 5s is capable of 120fps which will give smooth slow motion at around 9 times slower than normal speed and the iPhone 6 at up to 240fps or 18 times slower than normal speed. If you are on a budget, the Sony PS3 camera is capable of 125fps. This app will allow you to capture and analyze with the Sony PS3 on a Windows PC or laptop: www.heath-studios.com/slowmotion
