Can SS3 track the ball instead of a player?

SOLOSHOT3 does not have the ability to track a ball instead of a player just yet. In the meantime, you can utilize our multi-mode settings to record multiple players by telling the Base to track the fastest Tag, the closest Tag, multiple Tags, or switching between them from the SOLOSHOT3 Base.

Should I get the Optic25 or the Optic65?

Both cameras offer high-resolution filming, but they do differ in ways that can be important depending on what you are looking for. 

 

The Optic65 is great if...

 

  • you are sometimes performing activities further than 600 ft. from the Base, such as kite surfing or filming your drone flight since you will have a 65x optical zoom.
  • you are wanting to record in 4K or 2.7K resolution.
  • you want to utilize the 120 frames per second for awesome slo-mos.

 

The Optic25 is ideal if...

 

  • you will be filming the majority of your activities within a 600 ft. range since 25x optical zoom is more than enough. Most indoor activities will fit under this.
  • you are not looking for any resolution higher than HD (1080p).

 

Both offer...

 

 

* 240 fps will be available with a future firmware update.

Can the OpticX cameras record audio?

We understand that audio is half the battle when it comes to capturing great footage! With the OpticX cameras, we are offering multiple audio recording options for SOLOSHOT3:

 

  • Built-in mono, digital microphone
  • Input for an external analog, stereo microphone via a 3.5 mm jack
  • Support for remote wireless microphone (sold separately) to have the option of capturing audio in the Tag's (subject's) environment via a 3.5 mm jack
  • Proprietary hot shoe so you can physically mount the external mic or wireless mic receiver. Please note you will still have to connect audio to the OpticX cameras via a 3.5 mm jack since the hot shoe is for mounting purposes only.
