Hey, guys, I was planning to buy a camera to record my self cubing in competitions and at home. I was wondering which one to buy as I don't have any idea on cameras to record yourself cubing. My budget maximum is $500 dollars. Can you guys plz give me some suggestions.

Regards
Tavin

What amount of pixels do I need for decent quality? 4k is 4,000 pixels, right?
4k is 3840x2160 resolution. Not at all needed.

You can get away with 720p, which is 1280x720.

However, what you want is 1080p - 1920x1080.

Ideally, you want 60 fps as well. So 1080p60 or 4k60.

Stupid question but I’m still surprised I never see it asked by anyone else:

What about something that will make the camera/ iPhone sit at the perfect angle to record my solve with the whole of me on the video, like what the top cubers do at competitions.

I want to effortlessly video my competition solves but I can’t just take out my iphone and think about what to lean it against as I start my solve...

What do Max etc use?

Max uses a GoPro, I’d get a mini tripod with a phone adapter for comps

Use a mini gorilla tripod and a sports cam with a very wide angle. Many little tripods come with a "smart" phone holder if you don't want to buy a camera.
