How To Capture Your Own Swing Like A Pro
A proper setup of your camera gives the best results for a swing analysis. Different perspectives or a shaky video shot from your hips makes a proper analysis difficult to nearly impossible.
You need to capture two videos of your swing, a face-on view and a down the line view.
Please follow these instructions carefully.
Camera Setup And Height
Best results can be achieved with a tripod. You can also ask a friend or attach the camera to your golfbag. The camera should be approximately 4 to 5 feet from the ground (rule of thumb: use the height of your leading arm when it is parallel to the ground during your back-swing).
Set the camera to the highest shutter speed available for your lighting conditions (sports mode).
The camera should be level both horizontally and vertically.
To capture your face-on view place an alignment stick (or a golf club) in the middle of your stance. When you look through the camera your alignment stick should be perfectly straight. The camera should be far enough away from you so that it captures an unobstructed view of the club head throughout the swing.
Down the Line View
Place an alignment stick (or a golf club) directly below your hands. When you look through the camera it should be a perfectly straight line. This makes sure that the perspective isn’t skewed.
If you want to capture your swing multiple times over a longer period of time be precise and consistent with your camera distances and setup. This way you make your different recordings easily comparable.
