I used the 5 to review.Just a few questions, and I apologize if I missed the answers in the review:
1. I have the iPhone 5 which doesn't have the higher frame rate camera that the 5S has. Do you know if my camera will be decent enough to pick up key areas of the swing, or would it be better to upgrade my phone first? I am mostly interested in seeing the club face at hip height when the club is parallel to the ground and again at the top of the swing.
2. Do you have to use voice commands or can you just press a button on the Bluetooth device?
3. Can you use the markup tools in the app on the range and will they stay on screen while you play the video or is it only for still shots? I'd like to be able to draw the swing plane and watch the video to see where my club is throughout my swing.
4. If I just want to review my swings by myself on my phone would I still have to pay the $19.95 a year after the first year? I'm not too interested in uploading/sharing my videos if they are on my phone.
It does, thanks! I spent a lot of time with my current instructor looking at my swing on a digital slr that he uses from a tripod. It shoots at a higher frame rate than my iPhone 5, and still occasional misses the frame containing the position we were looking for, but still works well. I think the same would be true with the phone camera.I hope that helps!
To be fair, the voice commands aren't the only part of this, the "Locker" which gives complete editing access both on device and on their website also allows sharing, comparisons, and a ton of other things.I almost bought this from Amazon but missed the sale for $51 and change. Instead will be using gorillapod and smartphone attachment along with one of the several apps i have. The voice command would have been great to have but for $20-30 less I will settle for having to set the timer on the app, take my swing and then go back and stop recording.
