When we want to film or take a picture of ourselves doing something out of the ordinary, we have to rely on the help of someone else to do it. It is not as if we are able to use a camera while diving in a pool, for example. SoloShot came as a way to fix this problem; the device was a robotic one that sat between the camera and the tripod. It was used to keep the subject in the focus of the camera. SoloShot2 is able to take things even further than this and also tilt the camera.
Similarly to the first model, SoloShot2 is made of two parts: the base and the waterproof transmitter called the tag. The base is mounted on the tripod and moves in order to track the location of the tag. The waterproof transmitter is attached to an armband worn by the user. The base has a communication range of 2,000 feet (609 m). Its battery can run up to eight hours, while the battery life of the tag is only four hours.
What SoloShot2 brings new in comparison to SoloShot is the fact that it can tilt the camera by 150 degrees using a rate of 35 degree per second. In addition, by installing a camera control module in the newly added accessory dock of the base, the user can even start and stop recordings by pressing buttons on the tag. They can also zoom in and zoom out.
SoloShot2 is also able to track multiple tags. The base will lock either onto the closest, the fastest moving or the tag that gave it a “call camera” command. The base has been made compatible with most third-party tripods, although a “purpose-built SoloShot tripod” can also be purchased. It is also compatible with camcorders or DSLRs that have a maximum wight of 5 lb (2.3 kg).
