From shooting our latest and greatest achievements or some sporting moments, the task has never been simple. We all have wished for a personal cameraman at some point of time, whether for doing some stunt or a dance video or just wanting to be captured perfectly, it’s always been hard to get that perfect frame and timing. The Soloshot, third generation robot camera, is the gadget in the need of the hour. All that you need is to set it up, turn on the video camera and automatically capture whatever you wish. Whether you ski, trek, surf or drive everything will automatically be in the shot if you’re within 2,000 ft of the device. Soloshot is much more effective than the GoPro camera in terms of shooting range and it includes multiple features from Auto film as well. The unit includes a tripod, base station and a wristband.
The set-up is pretty simple; first you need to attach the Soloshot tag to your arm. The tag is shock and waterproof preventing any harm that can be caused. The movements of tag is tracked by the base station that can spin 360 degrees making it quite versatile for a number of sports and stunts, it can also pan, tilt and zoom with our every movement by tracking the tag. The base station also includes a built-in touch screen, WiFi connection and Soloshot Edit, which will automatically collect and edit recorded videos. With three and a half hours battery life, base station operates on a strong motor that can pan 120 degrees per second. The wristband can hold its charge for about five hours. It can be easily charged from the base station; also the transmitter has a series of LEDs that show the status of the unit.
The two Optic cameras, Optic 65 and Optic 25, have their own capabilities. One can choose whichever camera he wishes to shoot with. Optic 65 provides auto zoom and focus tracking, the resolution is upto 4K30 and 1080p120 and captures pictures with 12MP bursts. Having a larger diameter glass telescoping lens than the Optic25, and a 1/2.3″ sensor, it gives professional quality videos and images. The audio support features built-in mono mic and 2.5 mm input jack for external and wireless mics.

The Soloshot edit tools algorithm uses various activities and automatically detects the best clips from the recorded session and edits the footage. If you do not like what Soloshot has selected, you can just decline it when going over the clips and they will no longer be selected. The clips can be accessed over a desktop or mobile device. The vertical tracking feature allows more freedom for creativity and can be networked with other units too. It’s likely to be a perfect problem solver for filming extreme sports, insane stunts or anything that requires a lot of tracking.
SOLOSHOT3 could be the next big thing in the photographic world in terms of capturing all the swift in-game movements. From surfing, to volleyball and on the sideline in football, the features are there to record sporting videos at a much higher and more efficient level. All of these efficiencies place the SOLOSHOT in good terms in the requirement for motion tracking camera shooting.
