Swingshot HD Golf Video Camera

I just saw this “little” device while doing a search for “golf video cameras”.

It seems like a pretty nice idea, but am I really gonna pull this thing out during a round?  Check out the video:

 

It retails for $399, but  you can find this device on sale at Amazon for $329 and other websites for $299.  This thing is nothing more than a camera on a tripod with pretty colors.  With a maximum frames per second of 60, and a 720p resolution, I think you can find a better alternative for cheaper.  I’ve read that the GoPro Hero3 ($199 at Amazon) is a safe bet in terms of slow motion capture.  Or Sony’s HDR-AS15, which integrates nicely with v1’s iphone and ipad swing analysis apps.
