    Default Best way to record a game for analytical purposes?

    I notice some people are recording their games for reviewing afterwards. Does anyone here have any suggestions on how to do it properly so that I can analyse my game afterward? I play at a facility where there's only one floor so I can't mount something at a higher elevation point for that overhead camera view.

    tripod + camera/camcorder @ 720p is sufficient.

    Putting the camera on the floor is not great, but you can still get a lot of useful information from videos from that location.

    Which position to film at ground level?

    The camera angle seems a bit too low. I can see the opposing player, but I can't see the guy who's the closest to the camera if he moves away from the point of view.

    Get a wideangle attachment that attaches to the lens.

    mount it on a gorillapod and find a convenient spot to clamp it.

    exactly, it's not ideal, but it's not worthless either.
