How to Video Tape and Upload your Swing Video

Videotape Your Swing

Using your smartphone camera or video camera, we need both down-the-line and face-on views to do a proper analysis of your swing.

Down-the-line View

Face-on View

Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • It helps to have a tripod or something to rest the camera or smartphone on.
  • Position yourself directly behind the student, this is the down-the-line shot.
  • Height of camera should be hand-high when at your address position
  • Begin recording and hit two shots with whatever club you want.
  • Stop recording and move camcorder to the face-on position
  • Record two more shots with the same club.
  • Stop recording
  • Review your video to make sure you can see your entire body and club swinging within the screen.

Upload Your Video

You will need the V-1 software and you have three ways to upload the video,
