He Asked, Dr. Ferguson What Do You Use For Your Video Capture?

Auto Date Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

I just received a question from one of you yesterday which was:
“Dr. Ferguson what do you use in order to record videos
at tournament and to analyze videos?”

Thanks so much for the question. Here’s my answer.

I have tried many devices but I like two devices the best.

1.       The Flip Camera. The company that made The Flip camera no longer makes them but you can  still buy them from Amazon.com I own  4 flip cameras and absolutely love them. It’s quick, fast, easy and the quality is great.

2.       The Kodak Zi8. The Kodak Zi8 is no longer made and the primary reason is because they made the camera too good. It is the ONLY small camera that allows you to utilize a wireless microphone and it is high definition. It is a truly a remarkable piece of machinery. You also have to order this from Amazon dot com. I own 3 of these devices.

The editing software that I use is called Camtasia.  Camtasia is made by Techsmith, which is the same company that makes the software “Coach’s Eye” which I told you about yesterday.

Those are the things that I use for scouting. You are more than welcome to do your research on these items and others, but this is what I use.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

Take care and have a great day.

Dedicated to Your Improvement,

Rhadi Ferguson, PhD
