settings help for shooting close up golf swings
on May 27, 2009 at 2:29:54 am

I am going to be shooting some tee offs of golf swings and the shots are going to be a ms of the ball and about 6 inches of club shaft.

I am going to shoot at 29.97. Will a faster shutter speed allow me to get more of the golf swing?

Any other ideas golf related will be apprciated.

Do you need slow motion or regular motion? What exactly do you mean more of the golf swing?

At 30fps the ball will just disappear, you won't see the club at all. We have shot at 300fps and the club is still fast, but at least you can see it. A golf club at full swing is traveling at 100's of mph. You will need a high speed camera to catch the action. Especially that close, the wider you are the more you will catch.

Sounds like a good reason to head to the driving range!

Don't anything about high speed video but here is my though on what you have.

I think I would at least shoot 720p60p, thinking that a progressive frame is going to be clearer than 2 interlaced frames. You will also need at least a 500th of a second or faster shutter speed to stop motion if you want a clear image, even faster would be better.

At 30fps, the golf ball will disappear.

A few years ago, we did extensive testing on hi-speed cams. We captured a golf ball being hit at 1K fps in HD. We even tried 10K fps in SD, but, that was *yawn* too slow/boring @ playback. I think the final output was about 500fps.

If it helps, I believe this commercial was shot around 1,000 frames per second using the PhantonHD.

If you want to see how fast Ernie's swing is in real time, here's the behind the scenes of that commercial.
