Automatic Tracking Tripod Head

The SOLOSHOT2 Automatic Tracking Tripod Head keeps a camera pointed at a moving subject wearing a wireless transmitter from 200 ft to 2000 ft away. This robotic device does not require a camera operator. It can handle small cameras up to 5 pounds in weight and do 360° of continuous horizontal panning, making it ideal for following action or sports.

It only works outdoors because it uses GPS. The tripod head comes with a separate transmitter that can be worn on your subject’s arm. The unit takes about ten minutes to warm up ad find satellites. You can network multiple SOLOSHOT2 transmitters and bases together for a fully robotic production crew. It can also be used for motion time-lapse and astro-tracking.

The tracking tripod head must be at least 200 feet from the subject. It would be ideal for sports like surfing. But horse-back riding might not work because that would be closer than the recommended 200 ft+ distance. Check out the SOLOSHOT2 Automatic Tracking Tripod Head

It can also be used for time-lapse photography, but there are cheaper ways to do automatic pans during time-lapse. One is the Drift TimeLapse for only $17.
