Canon dSLRs Good For Filming Swing??

4 posts in this topic

The wife is getting a new camera for Mother's Day.  (Seems like a fair trade-off, seeing as how I got an Edel putter for an early Father's Day present)  We currently have a Canon rebel something or other and a few decent lenses to go along with it, and we like them, so we're definitely getting another Canon.

I am aware that a lot of the newer crop of dSLRs from Canon can shoot video, but I am not aware of their ability to shoot at fast frame rates.  At first glance, it looks like they cannot, but I figured I'd ask anyway.

Are any of them (except full frame sensors, those are out of the budget) better for shooting swings than another?  Are any (or all) of them better than an iPhone (my current camera du jour)?

Thanks for the help!

Seems like a great trade-off because you'll be keeping both in your golf bag! :-$

I believe the iPhone 5S at 120 FPS is better than any Canon. They can do 60.

Oh great.  I did not know that as I'm still in possession of a 4S.  However, we are close to due for an upgrade (July I think) so I'll just patiently wait it out until then.


Now that the video is unimportant, does anybody have any recommendations on the camera for regular use?

I'm currently looking at the Rebel T3i, T5i, SL1 and EOS 60D.  Anything above 60D is probably a little too expensive for our abilities, or lack thereof.
