SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 26, 2012) - The SOLOSHOT automatic cameraman -- http://www.soloshot.com -- is the first commercially available product that lets athletes, parents, and filmmakers get action video footage without requiring a person to hold a camera. SOLOSHOT automatically keeps a camera pointed towards the subject. SOLOSHOT works with any camera to track and film subjects moving up to 230 kph at distances up to 600 meters. The internal rechargeable batteries last over five hours. Multiple SOLOSHOTs can be used nearby without interference. The armband sensor withstands the most demanding ocean environments. The included professional tripod extends to 1.5 meters and features collapsible legs for easy traveling.
SOLOSHOT is perfect for sports enthusiasts such as surfers, snowboarders, soccer players, equestrians, water or snow skiers, wakeboarders, skateboarders, motocross racers, racecar drivers, kite surfers and more. Parents can film their kids playing sports while tech, gadget and professional filmmakers will benefit from the convenience of obtaining video footage without needing the assistance of another videographer. SOLOSHOT is compact, portable and available for purchase on SOLOSHOT.com for $479 USD (includes tripod and travel bag).
"We designed SOLOSHOT so everyone from surfers to equestrians to proud parents could enjoy getting great action video without needing someone to hold a camera," said Soloshot Inc.'s Co-Founder Chris Boyle. "Since we love to travel, we designed SOLOSHOT to be compact, portable, and durable."
SOLOSHOT consists of a portable tripod base and a small armband transponder. Simply mount any camera to the tripod base and the base automatically keeps the camera pointed at the subject wearing the armband. It benefits athletes who want video footage of themselves, but do not have someone to film them; parents who want a hands-free way to film their child playing outdoor sports; and filmmakers who want an extra dynamic angle without using the assistance of another person. Soloshot Inc. was founded by board-sport loving engineers Chris Boyle and Scott Taylor. The innovative technologies surrounding the current SOLOSHOT system and potential future versions have 20 patents pending.
"The response has been great -- SOLOSHOT is changing the way people film," said Soloshot Inc.'s Co-Founder Scott Taylor. "People love how SOLOSHOT allows them to easily capture extremely smooth and professional quality video footage without needing a cameraman, especially when they travel."
