The original SoloShot was one of our favorite products to hit the tech scene last year, and this year the Robot Cameraman gets a nice update with the unveiling of the SoloShot 2.
Finding someone to film all of your outdoor exploits can be quite cumbersome. Even your best buddies don’t want to spend their Saturday afternoons staring at you as you work on your surfing skills. Enter SoloShot 2. Essentially a robotic cameraman, this device sits between your camera and tripod, and automatically tracks and records your every move – ensuring you never miss a moment. Attach any camera you’d like to the Base, strap the waterproof/shock-resistant Tag to your arm, and you’re ready to roll. SoloShot 2 automatically pans, tilts and zooms, always keeping the camera pointed right at you. It has a 5-hour internal battery for the Base, and a 4-hour internal battery life for the Tag, both of which are rechargeable. The Base can communicate with your tag up to 2,000 feet away, and comes with a built-in security feature for locking your Base and camera to a nearby object. [Purchase]
