    Use your phone and an app called coach's eye.

    my phone isnt good enough for this, so I am really looking at the camera option.

    just out of interest
    are you using this app? and did it help you?
    maybe you can put up some screenshots if you use it.


    thanks

    A small hand held pocket camera with miniature tripod is fine. I've used them before. Something small and handy you can carry around

    I bought a webcam for 20 euro in maplins, it`s a Logitech 720p hd webcam, I hooked it up above the table, it`s permanently attached to the roof, it`s a great job if you have a laptop you can record straight to your hard drive or facebook live, I just use the windows 10 built in camera to record, it`s a great job.

    being a photographer and use anything from a go pro to a high end DSLR and film....

    My advice would be to get a medium quality compact camera with a decent frame rate for recording video, good zoom for getting close up on viewing where you strike the white ball along with nice and wide angle for your stance as well.

    my personal advice on a camera to anyone at the moment would be this. does everything you want for your snooker bits and a good quality camera for taking photos at other times.

    and get a good sturdy tripod for your filming
