What is the difference between SOLOSHOT2 and SOLOSHOT3?

We've been hard at work taking all the feedback our early adopters gave us on SOLOSHOT2 and implementing them in our 3rd Generation Robot Cameraman:

 

  • Set up time has drastically been reduced from 8 minutes to a minute and completely eliminates the walkabout and the need for a centering object.
  • Touch screen interface on the SOLOSHOT3 Base means a much more friendly user experience. Gone are the days of memorizing which LED means what. 
  • If you don't like where you set up the Base, you can easily move it to a new spot and the Base will self calibrate itself automatically in about a minute.
  • Now you have the option to Live Stream to your personal SOLOSHOTapp account and Facebook. 
  • The SOLOSHOT3 Base can pan 40 degrees per second faster (120 degrees vs 80 degrees) and tilt 35 degrees faster for tracking those fast action activities.
  • The tilt range has increased by 20 degrees for a total of 140 degrees, (-50, +90). 
  • The Tag is now 40% smaller and 30% lighter for our team athletes. 
  • Indoor tracking will be an option with our Indoor Accessory.

    Does the base aerial obstruct the mounting of DSLs and many pro level video cameras? (it sure looks like it might). Also what application controls exist for non-tracking control over the camera pan/tilt/rotation/zoom/focus.

    Can i set up points A, B and C and command a pan to point A/B/C? (And hopefully decide the speed to get there). Can I then say pan to Tracker A and it will. It's a bit unclear to me if it all relies on the trackers for positioning or if there is at least manual controls, but prefereably pre-production set-up of some key positions to switch between.

    Hi Alastair!

    You can mount a DSLR to our SOLOSHOT3pro Base with the Camera Adapter that has the 1/4" threading for most every camera, including DSLR's.

    If you are connected to a wifi network, you can control the pan, tilt and zoom of the OpticX cameras from your smartphone or tablet.

    You will be able to set up points as you described so that you can manually control the trajectory of the camera. Please note that for manual tracking and control, you will need a wifi network. This is not needed for automatic tracking when using the Tag, though.

    Hope this clarifies!
