Best Video Cameras And Smartphones For Golfers

March 24, 2020

The advent of super-powered smartphones has made it easier than ever for players to get a detailed look at their swings. And no smartphone is better at the job than Apple's flagship iPhone 11 Pro Max—to the point that many professional instructors use it for all of their video needs during lessons. The iPhone's triple-sensor setup is amazing for slow motion, low light, or anything else your swing can throw at it. And it's already in your pocket.

If you have more specialized needs, the pro-caliber Sony RX100 V and LiveView Golf cameras are there for you. The Sony offers ultra-fast autofocus, flexibility and movie-quality footage, and the LiveView sits in on your practice sessions via an included bendable tripod or on an alignment stick and pairs with your smartphone or iPad to let you look down at a replay of your swing as you do it. A new-for-2020 software update will also let you compare swings from multiple angles, just like the analysts do on television.
