View #1: Directly Behind, Full Body
- Setup the camera directly behind your ball side arm, at a normal height (5' - 6')
- Zoom out or move the camera back far enough to show you from head to toe at the beginning of your approach


View #2: Side View, Full Body
- Setup the camera a couple of lanes away, on your ball side
- Zoom out or move the camera far enough away that you can see your entire approach from start to finish
- If you can't get the camera far enough away, you can have a friend pan the camera to follow you during your approach


Optional Views


Directly Behind, Zoomed Into Release
- This view can help determine what is happening right at the point of release
- If you have control of your cameras shutter, set it to at least 1/100th or 1/250th to avoid motion blur
- This view can also help determine Axis Tilt, Axis Rotation, and Rev Rate
- For additional tips on creating this view, see http://wiki.bowlingchat.net/wiki/index.php/VideoCaptureRevsTilt


Front View
- ALWAYS GET PERMISSION FROM THE CENTER FIRST BEFORE SETTING UP DOWN THE LANE!!
- NEVER ACTUALLY WALK ON THE LANE, ONLY ON THE BALL RETURN CAPPING BETWEEN LANES OR IN THE GUTTERS!!
- If your center has a walkway on the side of the first or last lane, ask for that lane. They will be more likely to allow you to setup your camera or have a friend standing on that walkway than between the lanes
- Setup your video camera 10' or 15' past the foul line pointing back at you at a normal height, preferably on your ball side, zoomed out so as to show your entire body at the finish
- ALWAYS GET PERMISSION FROM THE CENTER FIRST BEFORE SETTING UP DOWN THE LANE!!
