Since we get asked this question all the time, we wanted to share some best practices on how to video your golf swing.
There’s two angles we recommend for taping your golf swing, "down the line" and "face on".
Down the line
Down the line is basically parallel to the target line. This view is the most common and is easier to capture on the range because the camera is not taking up a bay on the range. It’ll help you see the plane of your backswing, how your club face is pointing at the top of the swing and other aspects of your golf swing, such as your wrist hinge and hip rotation.
Face on is directly across from you perpendicular to the target line. This view will help show your setup angles, grip, body position and weight shift. At higher FPSs, you may even be able to see the club face angle at the impact point.
Instructions For The Perfect Setup
We recommend you capture your swings from both angles because they’ll tell you different things, when combined together will give you a full view of your golf swing. OnForm's new Practice Partner feature supports both angles and will make it easy to capture either angle.
Here are specific instructions on how to setup your phone or tablet for each angle.

Here is a very useful Youtube video from the great golf instructors at MeAndMyGolf describing how to setup your device when recording your golf swing.
Hope that helps! Swing away!
