What’s the best golf-swing aid? That’s easy. A video camera.
With video, you can identify in less than 10 minutes swing the flaws that otherwise might go undetected for years.
I’m often asked for recommendations for high-speed video cameras for filming the golf swing. Based on my experience and from my conversations with golfers and golf professionals, Casio dominates because they offer the features that we golfers want, at an affordable price.
So below are “good, better, best” suggestions from the Casio product line. In reality, though, I don’t think you need to consider the camera (the Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1) that’s in the “best” category, because most of the technology from that camera has been incorporated into the “good” and “better” of the Casio offerings.
If you’re new to golf-swing video analysis and if you’re going to analyze your swing yourself, I recommend you read Michael Breed’s “The Picture-Perfect Golf Swing: The Complete Guide to Golf Swing Video Analysis.”
