Calculating golf ball spin!! Looking for some help in starting a project to calculate golf ball spin (backspin and sidespin) as well as speed using a high speed camera. My plan was to use a high speed camera to capture several shots of a ball moving and determine the spin based on rotation of either a marking on the ball or dimple pattern. Does anyone know of any programs that are available to start this proces? Any help with the camera specs needed (ie the frame rate, shutter speed, lighting etc) would also be appreciated. The speed of the ball would be anywhere from 10mph to 200 mph. Thank you in advance.
