I was considering getting one, but it's not really the best for golf swing analysis. It distorts the image which makes it less useful for golf. Plus, you have to get the backpack to replay your videos, which is both inconvenient and tiny. I know @Beachcomber has one, @iacas doesn't use his for golf, and I think @rkim291968 has one. I asked this question late last year. You can start reading here: [URL]http://thesandtrap.com/t/39036/comprehensive-camera-for-filming-your-golf-swing-thread/180#post_1075306[/URL]

I use it to view slow mo of my swing (currently to see if my hand is flipping at impact).   Check if the camera already has an updated FW released by GoPro to support 720p/250FPS.   That's the mode I use to tape my swing.   I don't have an app that can replay the video frame by frame - am too lazy to search for one.   If you have such app, that'd help analyze your swing much easier.

    • The round I played yesterday was the first time when both my SG:D and SG:A were better than the 10 handicap level.  That's pretty good, especially since I know what I need to work on in terms of long game (and that has been improving a bit, too). 
    • Day 70 (6/13/21) - My wife filmed me taking swings with an 8-iron and Driver (w/o a ball) in the backyard. Positions seemed pretty good in the backswing, but in the downswing, I noticed that I have a tendency to let the club open up as I started down, thus requiring a correction at impact. Based on this information, I did several more swings focusing on keeping the clubface square to my line throughout the swing. Will work on ingraining this feeling again tomorrow. 
    • Every other weekend I play a modified version of match play with a friend of mine.  We play all 18.  Today I lost 8 to 6.  However...we also keep a cart score:  the winning/tying score, each hole, being the cart score for that hole.   Our previous low cart score had been +4.  This morning we managed a +3.  
    • Whoever chose this course (me) should be punished. And @georgep too. Apologies.
    • I recorded my swing in face on and down the line and have uploaded it here. Please critique and provide feedback. Appreciate your time on this! Thanks! 11 HCP. 8 Iron. Looking to optimize swing and learn to score in Golf.
