The GoPro Hero 3 is a great camera, but it may not be the best for golf video swing analysis.  Mainly because of it’s low frame rate and lack of a built-in LCD.  The only thing that the camera has going for it is its low price.

The Casio EX-FH100 is no longer made, but this camera is, hands down, the best low priced video camera for golf swing analysis mainly due to it’s ability to manually control the shutter speed.  You can still find this camera used on Amazon or Ebay for around $300-$400.

A brand new Sony Action Camera HDR-AS15 is on sale at Amazon for $128 right now. That’s the lowest price that I’ve ever seen for this slow motion camera. The camera captures full 1080p at 60 frames per second. It’s pretty neat actually. With a golf swing, you can actually see the blades of grass fly up after the club hits the ball.
