Does anyone have a suggestion for a solution to video a swim stroke under the water?
1 - There are special underwater cameras that are expensive.
2 - There are also waterproof bags that people put their video cameras in. For this option I wonder how one gets the bag to stay stationary so that you can capture video without the pool wake dramatically effecting the video
Let me state that I am looking for a solution that I can implement on my own and not have someone hold the camera for me.
When I was an age-group swimmer ( 30 yrs ago) my coach got some of the big kids to half submerge a 15-gallon fish tank in the water, he placed an 8-mm home movie camera into the tank and got remarkably good footage. He took film of us swimming toward the camera and past the camera. I guess he was ahead of his time. If the waterproof bags are any good I guess that is the way to go, just get a friend to hold the camera steady and the wake will not be a problem....
