By M. Gentry on January 17, 2015
First impressions were all good. Before I did anything I performed a firmware update on the base and tag and, the separate camera controller and they all 3 went off as expected. No issues.
Set up is straight forward, just follow the included cheat sheet and you'll be up in 10 or so minutes. The head seems to track really well, I just wore the tag on my arm while walking/running around the back yard and it even kept tracking me when I walked behind the shed. So all in all, in the basic surf and turf mode it works exactly as expected. I did find when you walked inside of about 30 feet of the base it started combing the sky as if it was lost. It immediately jumped back on track when I would walk farther away.
This is pretty much as described in the info, keep a 30' perimeter.

As I haven't used the device much I won't go into too much detail, I'll try to update when I do use it more.

One negative I have right away though, and this may just be my setup I don't know but, the top screw to attach your camera to..... at best has only 2 threads protruding through the base. I've already found that my JVC camcorder will Not attach to the top of the base unit as is.
If your camera's attaching threads aren't flush level at the bottom of your camera's body then, you maybe be out of luck. I just happened to have a swivel ball camera head that I used as a go between from the Soloshot's top to my handheld camcorder which I'm okay with because that thing doesn't weigh much.
I don't know how I'm going to feel about attaching my $3000+ DSLR and prime lens on top of this moving device while only 2 threads hold it all together.

I've attached some pictures of what it took to get the camcorder mounted and the length of the mounting screw. For the cost of this rig, I really hope they get this figured out. It could potentially makes it worthless to some people.

I've had this for a few days and used it twice to video my daughter's high school field hockey games from the grandstands.
She wore the tag in her sock above her shin guard. Smoothly tracked her all over the field. It is great to be able to watch the game without manually operating a video camera. Very easy to setup (allow 10 to 15 minutes) and use. This is the coolest piece of camera equipment I have ever bought. The only thing I see that would be an improvement is a indicator for remaining battery charge. I have not run the battery dead and the battery life is supposed to be 8 hours, which is more than enough, but it would be great to be able to check the remaining charge.

This is not a shabby piece of kit at all. I use it very often for filming my equestrian work and it works like a charm.

I've always been pretty peculiar when using the camera to film action, and I found it's actually very rare someone else doesn't end up filming the sky, the trees, the grass, random people, their own crotch… you get the idea: anyone and anything but the subject they were supposed to be following.

Anyway - this thing works absolutely spot on, but it is a little tedious to set up, especially when you have a horse with you, and no one to help (but hey - make a game of it, it's training after all and everyone's patience is a virtue and something to be exercised). After a few tries you'll find that the horses just take the new routine for normal, and don't even bat an eyelid at the fact they need to stop and wait for you to bugger around with the tripod and camera, set the scene, then follow you as you do the little bee-dance with the GPS tag in your palm… and so on.

Things to consider:
a). follow the pairing instructions to the letter - don't improvise. They work.
b). If you've stuffed up the GPS lock - your camera will appear to be driven by one of your least camera-talented friends: trees and grass shots galore. Start again.
c). If you stay too long in one place (more than 3-4 minutes) your GPS position will start drifting. This is normal. As soon as you start moving, within 2-3 meters the camera will snap back on you.
d). The unit works well under trees, but if you chose to stop under a dense tree, you will start drifting and it will take longer to get a proper lock again because of the rest of the canopies.
e).

I had Soloshot1 from the day it came out and it was amazing. Took the guesswork out of awesome footage. Now Soloshot2, are you kidding me. Like the other reviewer said, it takes about 10-15 minutes to setup, but worth every minute of that setup time. The quality of footage with this new unit is SUPERBERB. I have used it so far at the motorcycle racetrack, kitesurfing, paddleboarding, BMX and Surfing. ALL the footage came out awesome. I am way stoked on this new setup. PS: i got the complete package including camera, and camera controller. WORTH EVERY PENNY.

I actually can't live without the Soloshot 2 camera package. I am a dressage rider and I need it to analyze my rides, and the effectiveness of my training. In dressage, you must try to achieve perfection, and without seeing what it looks like from the judge's perspective, you can't tell what needs work and what is going really well. I also take it to my jumping lessons and I love to take screen snaps out of that as the horse and reach the highest point over the fence. Setting it up is not hard. It's something that I have become dependent on, and I'd pay double what they were asking if I had to!!!!!!!!!!!
