Hey Chris.

Going to be hitting the links tomorrow and just curious how fast of shutter speed you'd recommend to catch a golf swing? I figure its the closest I can get to messing around with some fast action shots......(waves are so dull) :lol:

It's gonna be really fast. You'll probably always have blur at the head because of how fast it's swinging. That said, start off at 1/500 and go up from there. If there's not enough light, increase the ISO until it works.

Report back, I'll be interested to see what worked for you.

Many youngin's today can take it 105-110 MPH, but most of them don't have a clue where the ball is going to go. Something like swinging a wet noodle. FYI, my swing speed runs about 96 MPH. 98 or 99 when I crank it up. It was faster when I was 15 years younger, but don't let slower swing speed fool ya. I'll get it in the hole before you.

Jeremy Brown and Anthony Warren can get up up to probably around 120 -125...that is top tour pro speed. Tiger Woods is about 125, although he doesn't go all out. Trouble is, he doesn't know where the ball is going off the tee, either LOL. Jeremy Brown competes against guys who can get to 150 in National events. They drive the ball through phone books and plywood.

I'd like to see the final product. If you get shots of the takeaway, to the top, at the bottom and the follow-thru, and from beside and behind, it would be easy to offer pointers. But make sure they are hitting a golf ball and not just blades of grass.

mehhhh, I had a few turn out OK but nothing special. We'll call it simply an experimental day with my shutter speed settings. Since it was cloudy, I could have used a bit more ISO as the pics are all fairly dark. I didn't remember how to adjust it and I couldn't take too much time to mess around as I was playing too!

You are pretty much going to need every single 100th or 1000th of a second you can get. To cleanly catch contact with the ball you will need a shutterspeed which DSLR's are not capable of.

I have a swing speed in the 115 + region (not tested in a long time) and at 1/8000th of a second we could get nothing but blur when trying to catch my swing.
