Check out our all new Golf Swing Analyzer System! We added The Imaging Source Cameras to our Foresight Sports FSX 2020 setup. In this review we will talk about the golf swing camera specifications, setup, lighting, and show a demonstration of a swing in the software. If you are looking to purchase these cameras or GCQuad, GCHawk, Launch Pro, GC3, etc. be sure to shoot me an email for discounted pricing at:

For the Golf Swing Analyzer cameras I contacted The Imaging Source directly who actually manufactures the cameras that are shown in the video. They are very easy to setup as they will provide you with the proper length cables that you will need and they are basically plug and play with the Foresight Sports FSX 2020 Golf Simulator software. After connecting the cables I simply launched FSX 2020 and selected each camera, changed the settings to my liking as I show in the video and I was ready to go. Keep in mind flicker free lights are important. The NEEWER LED panels that I use can be found here:

I think that there is going to be a ton of demand for a simple solution like this now that the Bushnell Launch Pro and Foresight Sports GC3 are hitting the market using FSX simulation software. Overall I think this golf swing analyzer setup is a huge value to all of those using Foresight Sports FSX 2020. You can get a quality video review of golf swings right inside of the software you are already using for your ball and club data. If you are using a Foresight Sports GCQUAD, GCHawk, GC2, or looking at the upcoming Bushnell Launch Pro this will be a perfect fit.

In this video I am using my Foresight Sports GCQuad Launch Monitor, here is some more information regarding that unit. The Foresight Sports GCQuad is a portable golf launch monitor that is high-speed camera and infrared based. The Quadrascopic technology takes detailed pictures of the ball and club still while still allowing the the unit to be placed almost two feet across from the ball on the ground. This advanced camera technology allows the Foresight GCQuad to be a simple setup in most environments from outdoor driving ranges to smaller indoor simulator rooms.

Kyle S says:

Do you know if these cameras will work with Swing Catalyst? Is your discounted pricing arrangement still available?

jesse oaks says:

Hi jay. I have called and emailed the people at surfthing to get these cameras. Was wondering is there another way to get in touch with them. It’s going on 2 weeks now. Thanks

sinkingputts says:

Is there anyway to do a automatic play back either on the main screen or a separate monitor?

Franco Bastone says:

great video I'm setting up a golf sim. I have a 16×14 shed built for me and I already have the gc3. looking to buy the Sony senor like the one from the video. I want to run all the wires behind the walls what do you think.

Eric Racine says:

Do you have a camera you would recommend for uneekor qed, without spending 1500 on eye optix? Thanks!

Casey Cook says:

Is there an option to have a 3rd camera for club impact? Would love the ability to actually see where the ball was struck on the club head. But I would image that would be up in the 500+ FPS.

Ralph P. says:

I don't see a link to the cameras. Could you provide a link please?

Tom Howarth says:

Would the people at the Imaging Source be able to help with a camera system for the Eye XO if you have a DLP projector and want to avoid the "flicker" you can get with some high speed cameras (like the Swing Optix)?

Blaine Tsukayama says:

How do I purchase this camera? Thank you.

scott boxenbaum says:

Are these cameras compatible with the EyeXO? Thanks.

Jim Daniels says:

How much did the cameras in this video cost ??

Jacob McCain says:

Definitely would love your insight on what I should do with my setup once I get my Bushnell Launch Pto in next week.

adam viggiano says:

I have a gqQ sim setup at my house and our outdoor season is just about over. I want to add a couple swing cameras and yours look great. I’m your video you said to shout you an email before ordering through them but I don’t see your email. No worries if there isn’t a promo code , either way I’ll tell them I saw their product in your video. Keep up the good videos !

DRancid says:

Does it work with Mevo+ too? If not, any recommendation? Thank you in advance.

Russell Fothergill says:

Is there a distributor for these in the uk? Thanks

Maximus says:

Can you share the tripods you used? Anything special about mounting them to the tripod?

Arthur Ford says:

Can you incorporate V1 BodiTrak into this set up?

James Houghton says:

I just bought these cameras and set them up in my studio today when I connect to FSX and go in settings the camera is recognised in the swing cam section but doesn’t give an image preview, Amy ideas what this could be do I need to download a driver to make it work??

J Lark says:

What a small world. I knew you looked familiar and recognized the last name from another video. I live in Fenton, purchased my vehicle from you a few years ago.

Will Skinner says:

Not sure if this was mentioned but will these work with trackman tps?

Jess Lewis says:

Jay what’s the pricing on these cameras? And is there a next step up option that’ll give a better frame rate and clearer frames of the shaft and club head on the downswing? Sourcing cameras has been the biggest challenge for my setup. Very pricey from the video analysis software companies and the cheap options on Amazon etc aren’t very good either.

Evan Magrill says:

Jay, thanks for this video and the others as they are very informative. I have been looking for an easy way to set up cameras. I have several prior model iPhones. Do you know if there is a way to integrate their cameras into a setup?

Shane says:

you should do a video on Kinovea (free) software for video analysis, still have to buy the cameras

BJ Stewart says:

Thanks, Jay! I literally just bought these and set them up about 5 days ago. Still working on getting them dialed in, but I loved the video!

Jon Healy says:

I also have the same cameras from Imaging Source and I can say that they are great to work with. They were very patient with all my questions and made sure that I was getting the right equipment for my set-up.

As you mention, lighting is key and with that in mind, would it be possible to hold a phone light meter app towards the light source so we can know just how bright your lighting is? Best and accurate numbers would be from holding the phone from the same spot that you're hitting from.

Thanks in advance

David Cullen says:

Will eventually be looking for cameras for EYE XO.
