DIY [# 29] ~ Videography–iPad Pro 10.5 Video Rig, 07/16

I have refined this project and added audio, using the Sound Shark Parabolic Microphone.

A week ago I set out to look at “my pad” on a video rig. I see promise.

I went to validate my configuration from earlier today where I want to use my iPad Pro 10.5 as a 4K video camera for the 2017 International Folks Festival Parade of Nations in Fayetteville, North Carolina late September.

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

Another month has passed. Shipping gates have slipped [again]. The product is supposedly better than ever…

SOLOSHOT Says: [more]

We’ve made tons of progress in the month of May, and now that we’ve been able to crunch the numbers and assess testing data, we are excited to provide you with the latest update for this past month.

SS3 May Update2We have some good news (mass production has finally kicked off!!) and some not-so-good news (we’re going to need just a little bit more time) to share with you. We apologize for sending the update after the holiday weekend. Much of our team worked straight through it, and we wanted to make sure you had the most up-to-date and accurate information as possible.
