A little over a year ago, we showed you the original SOLOSHOT, a fantastic idea that made it so you could make video footage that followed you based on your location without a cameraman, via a small tracking device you strap to yourself. It's a brilliant concept, and SOLOSHOT is releasing a version 2 with some great new features.
SOLOSHOT2 automatically pans, tilts, and zooms to keep your camera pointed at you, from a distance, without a camera operator. It attaches to your tripod and follows you from a tracking device. You can also link multiple SOLOSHOT2s together to to get multiple angles and track multiple transmitters simultaneously. That's pretty sweet.
The new SOLOSHOT2 adds vertical tracking, automatic zoom control, that aforementioned multi-unit pairing mode, 4 tracking modes, an accessory port for add on modules and arguably most important a more compact and lightweight transmitter.
The price point for just the base unit, transmitter, armband and USB charging cable is $399 on pre-order, which isn't a bad price considering what this thing can do.
Thanks to Brandon Cawood for the heads up!
