I have a cheap tripod and bought a nice iPhone mount for it. It works great. It really lets you slow things down. Using iMovie you can slow it down even more. (Third clip)

Shot Noise And Speed

I just tried trad vanes, cock vane in, on my satori. They are flying like darts and noticeably quieter. May have to do a little testing.
