Best camera for recording stroke?

Heading off on holiday this summer, and will be in a pool where it will actually be possible to make some recordings! Unlike my normal pool.

I was wanting something that could record slow-motion...

Well I've lost 3st in the last 8 months and it's made almost zero difference to my swimming.

It has slightly reduced the stress on my shoulder and elbow joints, but my balance was pretty decent...

That's so interesting!!

I was a natural breasttroker as a kid and can still manage a 1.40 BS now. But although I can get some extra propulsion with a 6BK I would say I'm certainly worse than average...

Hi Suzanne,

I've had my Garmin Swim for nearly a year now.

The data is public - help yourself. :)

Actually that doesn't work for some reason.

I have always been similar to Andy.

When moving from a 6BK to a 2BK my first stage was to get my balance good enough to swim without kicking.

Then I started introducing the 2BK.

Might be worth a go for you too.

It depends so much on the pool, and sometimes even on the day.

My main pool has two fast lanes, but half of one is usually taken up by the coach.

The pace in the other fast lane varies between...

Hi Helix,

Don't be too hard on yourself, sure the left hand isn't as patient, but it's tricky when you rotate to breathe.

You seem to actually stroke faster on the one side, it's not just your lead...

Yes that's right. Oliver Wilkinson 1.20, Stuart Purcell 1.36. I know how fast Stuart is, so Oliver must be amazing. And he's not 20 years younger. Maybe 8 or 9. Even more impressive.

There are two reasons I like to swim long sets.

1. I find it relaxing.

Well the current world record holder swims at about 0.97, so no, you don't have to go right down to 0.7 (85spm)

According to Charles' spreadsheet (modified for 45spm) I am almost reaching 0.7 - maybe...

The USA probably has more 50m pools per state in their high schools than we do in the UK.
