Review – Soloshot 3 Robotic Camera System

It can be a real hassle getting all the video and photos needed to do a review or any kind of product testing. Sometimes you just need an extra pair of hands to get a good shot and there isn’t anyone available. That’s where something like the Soloshot 3 is a life saver.

Soloshot 3 Features

The SOLOSHOT3 with Optic65 Camera is a robotic filming system that acts as your personal cameraman. Capture the action up to 2,000-ft. away with 65X optical zoom in up to 4K30, 1080p120 video.

65X optical zoom: ideal for filming activities up to 2,000-ft. away. That’s over 6 soccer fields!

Included in the box: SOLOSHOT3 Base, Tag with an armband, Optic65 Camera, mini USB charging cable, tripod tool and adapter screw, and getting started guide.

Soloshot 3 Uses

With the latest software updates, the list of places to use the Soloshot 3 keeps growing. There is a new Beta Time Lapse mode. A full manual mode, and of course the tracking mode.

One of the shortcomings of the Soloshot is its inability to track indoors. Everything is not lost, with the manual control you can set it up and use it like any traditional camera on a tripod. There are pan and zoom functions on the touchscreen so you really can get the exact shot you need.

For outdoor action shots, there isn’t anything that compares. Drones are too unreliable to run unattended, having a full-time camera person can be quite costly, and normal cameras can’t track your movement or zoom in and out to keep the action front and center. With a 2000 foot range and a 65x zoom the Soloshot 3 is never out of range of that perfect shot.

Soloshot 3 Thoughts

I love the versatility that the Soloshot 3 gives for solo video shooting. Set it up, run trails, climb, build, and it will follow you. I am surprised more people aren’t using the setup to shoot the video for their YouTube channel. Instead of always having a tired arm from the selfie pose you can get more for less effort and that is always a win in my book.
