    Filming swing

    I'm after a bracket that I can attach to my bag at the driving range so I can film my swing using my phone.

    Anyone got one that they could recommend?

    Re: Filming swing

    I know this does not directly answer your question but you can get really cheap phone tripods off ebay, amazon etc. They reduce up to a small size, legs are telescopic, and work very well. We use one at work for filming short production videos and they do the job. They are so much smaller and lighter than proper camera tripods but would be ideal for what you need. Have a look, I am sure they would work better than something attached to a bag that would sway and wobble.

    We paid about £20 for one for work but I found this one off ebay for under £10 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Universal...MB6KfpnMVuXKkw

    If you have already looked at these and discounted them then I apologise.

    Whichever way you go, try and get the camera at least head height or higher

    I have this one. It is good for the price, I'd say it is a little unstable but for the driving range it is perfect, I just wouldn't be using it to take pictures on top of a windy cliff!

    The bluetooth remote is also useful when videoing as you can have the remote in your pocket and record without having to go back to the camera every time.

    That's ok if you're outside on grass but if you're on a range filming out, you'll get too much sky which throws the golfer into silhouette
