Videoing Games-Solo Shot

Discussion in 'Arizona Scene' started by soccerallthetime, Jun 9, 2020.

  1. We have always videoed our kids games ourselves using traditional methods. Has anyone used Solo Shot? Like the idea of not having to worry about videoing and being able to just watch the game. I am wondering if it works well?

    Great video solution that allows parents to enjoy watching the matches without the hassle of videotaping. SoloShot also has video editing tools that make it easier to create player highlights. It can also livestream the match. It still requires the player to wear a small device. Players may not enjoy wearing the device. The top teams of large clubs (Del Sol, PRFC, RSL AZ) videotape their teams with alternative methods (Trace, Veo, etc.) and these methods work very well. Well worth investigating for you and the rest of your team's parents.

    The device required for Trace is much smaller than the device for SoloShot. The Trace device is small enough to fit in the player's sock. The SoloShot device is strapped around the player's upper arm or around the waist. The Trace device and the software provides a lot of data for the coaches and players, including distance covered, max speed, heat map, and automated video highlights of each player.

    I have one and love it, works great and love the video quality. Unfortunately, my son does not like to wear the tracker, SMH.
    FYI buy the SOLOSHOT3 Optic 25, it works best for recording in ranges of 600 ft or less like soccer & football games. It also costs less than the SOLOSHOT3 Optic 65, which works best for anything 600 ft or farther.

    For the person that wants it all, the Optic65 is 4k resolution (Optic25 is 1080p) and films 1080p at 120fps for better slo-no footage. Whether that's worth an additional $300...

    I looked at the reviews for this and some are pretty bad. Your experience has been good? What type of tripod do you use? Is it possible to stream off of this? Would be nice to do for parents/grandparents that are not able to attend games.

    See the same guy trying to sell for $800 from two months ago in 3 different posts and one in Sun City West for 700. Heard the stabilization on the 65 optic is bad so I think the 25 would be the way to go. Should be cheaper too.

    My experience has been good with mine, I can only speak for my unit. I use a sturdy camera tripod and yes you can stream live. Great video quality and you get to watch the game not having to worry about recording yourself, it’s GPS based so it knows when to zoom in or out. I haven’t used it in awhile because my son won’t wear the tag, he says it’s uncomfortable. SMH

    I looked into one but my dd (a keeper) is fearful of landing on the tracker etc. I’ll probably stick with the iPhone and Tripp’s. Lol

    I’ve seen the classic teams in the west valley using a Veo. Thing is pretty sweet. It sets up in like 2 minutes. I tried to talk our coach into asking our club for one and he just laughed.

    I'm in the market for one too. I see the 65 on OfferUp for $800, but not the $300 one (I assume it's a 25). Anyone know if it's still available? al66, planning on getting rid of yours?

    Thanks singh. When I use that link I just get redirected to all electronics in Mesa. Maybe someone bought it. I'll keep looking.

    NP Possibly, he posted it a month ago and then dropped th price, when I click it opens up. (But maybe because i looked at it in the past)

    It is listed under Soloshot 3 sold by Jesus in mesa

    Had Soloshot 2 then got Soloshot3 and still had issues with Solo Shot3 so I sold it. the plus side is that they have OEM camera options. this year going to see how VEO will work. VEO looks like they still use two hero cameras that are encased but the software behind it look much better than TRACE. TRACE uses hero cameras too but their software really is bad. But can say I have tried it, and TRACE is really bad.

    My Frankenstein 24ft telescopic tripod system with two or three camera system is still #1 for recording the action.

    Maybe, my son isn’t very fond of wearing the tracker. He’s playing for PHX RISING Pro Academy and they video all the games. My Soloshot3 is like new, I only used it 6 times, I have 2 trackers, enough memory cards to record 4 games and a stat sports vest. $600

    Can you explain what the issues you had with the soloshot cameras were?
