Soloshot is awesome. It allows you to film yourself without having to beg your friend or girlfriend to sit bored for hours and hold a camera, watching you have fun. I'm super happy with it. (but be prepared for random people on the beach to come over and ask you about it though)

I use it for filming surfing mainly. It definitely helps a lot with improving technique, being able to watch your self from a surf video perspective. Plus you won't miss footage of that one awesome wave that no one saw you catch but you swear was epic. Some of my friends with kids borrow it to film soccer, little league, or whatever...so they can watch their kids game and don't have to hold a camera the whole time.

How it works:
You basically just put on a waterproof armband and "pair" it with the base station (there could actually be multiple people on the same beach using multiple Soloshots because each arm band is only paired to one specific base station). The entire process of setting up the tri-pod, making sure the camera is level, and pairing the arm band with the base station takes about 5 to 10 minutes (much faster once you do it a couple times). After this point, the camera just follows the arm band wherever it goes.

Security / Theft:
I just set up next to my girlfriend or group of friends who are hanging out on the beach. If you could find something sturdy to lock to, there is a notch and bar in the base station you can use to lock the camera to the base station, and then lock the base station to a light post or bike rack or something.

Camera & Filming:
I use a digital HD video camera with a 20x optical zoom so I can get footage from a long way off.

Among other things, I have used this Soloshot for kitesurfing. It is amazing how it can follow you, even when you are far out in the ocean. All in all, this unit does what it advertises.

The set-up seems complicated at first, but becomes easy with familiarity.

The basic parts are:
Transmitter (this is what you wear on your armband)
Base Unit (comes permanently attached to an included tripod)
Video Camera (separately, you purchase whatever brand you want and screw it onto the Base Unit)

Basically, you turn on the Transmitter 10 minutes prior. When it is ready, you pair it to the "base unit", which has your video camera attached to it. Set your video camera to record (you will need a long lasting battery for your video camera). Then edit your footage into something like this (2 minute video of kitesurfing):

This product warrants 5 stars because it is so ingenious. However, I would suggest a more stout tripod since wind vibration was a big problem for what I was doing.

i was more into the Soloshot 2 but i decided to give the first generation model a shot. it comes all put together and its in its own little carrying bag. it takes 3 hours to charge both the onboard battery and the arm band. this unit comes with a very descriptive user manual. my first time setting this up was a bit tricky, but by the second attempt i was golden. it works best outdoors for it uses GPS. it works best when your at least 40ft away from the camera and tripod.....any closer and it won't track you properly. it is made out of a durable plastic and the tripod is made out of aluminum. it has a bubble level and a compass on the tripod. i don't know what the compass is used for but i hope i find out soon!

PROS:
light weight
sturdy design
can hold larger cameras like DSLRs
long battery life
waterproof arm band
easy setup instructions (user friendly)
has a special mount for locking your camera to it (aka...so it isn't stolen)
you can add multiple solo shots together

CONS:
price $299.....for just panning (but with a huge distance and accuracy of devise...its worth it)
it only pans left and right
arm band can be a bit bulky to wear

over all i love this and i bought 2 of these and both are perfect!

i can't wait to get the 2nd one!!!!!!

I finally had a chance to play with my Soloshot. At first I was a little worried about the minimum required operating distance; in reality, a panned shot from 200 feet or longer, zoomed in, looks much better than a close shot. For instance, I had two cameras following a walking subject on 20 feet of rail, and you can barely notice any camera movement, almost like the effect I'm trying to create is dampened. By comparison when panning from a distance with the Soloshot zommed in, the compressed background moves by much faster, the effect is amplified. I love it. I could think of quite a few ways to use this.

The unit is worth carrying along even if the automatic pan is not used, simply for the fact that of all my professional tripods, it is the lightest and smallest.

I've had mine for almost a year now, and have had a lot of success with it. GPS based technology isn't perfect, and I occasionally end up off screen, but it does track fairly well.

It takes some learning to get it right. It works best if you give the transmitter the full 15 minutes to "warm up". I'm pretty sure what it is doing is tracking GPS satellites.

I am thinking of upgrading to the SoloShot2 once it becomes available, since it adds tilt and zoom, and can control the camera, turnign it on and off for you.
