Hi guys, I am interested in purchasing a new camcorder for golf instructional purposes. The Sony camera I have now is DCR-TRV20 and the frame rate just isn’t cutting it. My goal would be to find a camera with a high frame rate so I can view as many pieces on the golf swing as possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I don’t know any cameras off the top of my head, but if 30fps isn’t cutting it, look for a camera that shoots 60p. If that still isn’t enough, some cameras shoot up to 120fps. I believe the Sony EX3 can shoot 120fps.
Check bhphotovideo.com and do a bit of searching.
Actually, there are several consumer models that have adjustable frame rates – My Sony SR11 has a super slo-mo feature.
