Best camera for videoing a round of golf

7 posts in this topic

Over the last year I've used my iPhone and video camera to capture footage of my golf swing out on the course BUT I'd like to look at something that has descent slow motion video capture and better resolution.

video from my iphone

Video from my video camera

The draw backs of either of these is it takes for ever to get the iphone propped up to take a video and neither of them has slow motion capture capability...plus I dont want either out when its a bit wet!

The one on top of my list is the hero go pro 3 but there are lots of complaints about that camera just stopping working for no good reason??? So the question is, what are you guys using out there to record video of your swing that has descent slow motion video capture capability?

Id be keen to mount something on my trolley so I could capture a round and then go through and analyse that round to help improve my game.

Thanks in advance.

Tough to beat 120 FPS in 720p on an iPhone 5S.

I had thought the iOS7 upgrade was going to deliver slow mo capture and all the camera improvements to the iPhone 5 but was sadly, wrong! :(

Iphone just had to get a good FPS, and good resolution. Its going to be harder not to upgrade when I decide to get a new phone. :-P

Its the slow mo capability that Im really after. How is that in the 5s? I noticed on a friends Samsung Galaxy phone that it had a specific golf swing capture video mode so has anyone tried this?

Yeah, I dont really want to use a phone (as my current contract isnt up for a whole yet) but a proper dedicated camera so I can use it when its a bit wet and so on.
