Hi all,

Appreciate if bros here can share/ advise on a good high speed (fps) compact camera to capture golf swing in video format. I know Casio is Exilim is good but any recommendation for other brands?

There's an electronic fair going on now in Singapore Expo. I hope to get a good bargain :-D

Thanks.

Have you tried iPhone 4/4s/5 and swing reader app? Upgrade 2.99 can upload the vids

I'll download the swing reader app and have a go! :-) I was in youtube and came across a couple of good videos on golf swings, captured at 420fps. Really clear and steady. Most were using Casio but if the swing reader app works, why not! cheers
Thanks!!

As pushslice highlighted, a smartphone swing reader should be good enough to analyse your own swing.

I myself was using the casio Ex-F1 a few years back, taking videos of myself at 210 FPS. The quality was decent. But honestly, after spending about $600 then on the camera, I don't think the videos I took of myself helped much. They're more of a novelty really. It's much wiser to spend it on a coach, imho.

If you can upgrade your phone to Note II, that will be great.
I have taken with its slow motion video using it at night in the range and can really see the impact of my driver quite clearly.
Cheers!
