Technology ~ Photography–SOLOSHOT3 Update, 06/21

SOLOSHOT has been giving weekly updates for 3 weeks now

Still, the first pallet has not shipped from the manufacturer. The disappointing delays mount, with lots of dismayed customers, some angry, and some who have canceled their orders for a full refund. Many placed [paid for] their orders nearly 2 years ago. I ordered 01/22/2016. I continue to wait patiently. In spite of the delays, this is a REALLY cool motion time lapse video!

SOLOSHOT says:

All end-of-line testing procedures and automation for mass quantities of hardware have been implemented.

Despite this, we have not yet shipped the first pallet due to debugging the initial set-up (aka First Boot Mode).

Despite this, we have not yet shipped the first pallet due to debugging the initial set-up (aka First Boot Mode). Specifically, we are making sure that what’s needed on the back-end for initial setup, which includes downloading the software suite and creating a SOLOSHOT account, is ready for mass amounts of users.

We wish this took only a week to get right, but it’s a continuous process that we are hoping will be done as soon as possible so we can get the hardware over to the fulfillment center at long last. We will be sure to announce when this happens!

One thing that did come together this past week is the Motion Time-Lapse App! Check out the compilation below. Images are straight out of the Optic65 Camera, with the following settings:

Photo intervals: 3-5 Sec
# of Frames: 300-900

DIY [# 24] ~ Photography–dslrBOOTH Cart–POS, w/Square on iPad Pro, 06/19

Added a counter/shelf for POS devices

They integrate with the iPad. A tethered Apple Pencil can be used to sign the purchase. Square’s iPad App has more features than it does on the iPhone. With this setup, a customer can see details of their photograph and pay for it before it is printed–all from the iPad.
