San Antonio, Texas - Join Team Soloshot, creators of the popular automatic tracking camera, for a free tropical film trip of a lifetime as they surf, kite, wake and moto in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. One lucky winner and their guest will join Team Soloshot and receive a free round trip flight and lodging in Cabarete. To enter to win simply post a YouTube video(s) that meets the simple guidelines listed here:
An unlimited number of videos may be submitted and the contest ends on March 31, 2013. A winner will be selected by random drawing on April 1, 2013. The odds of winning are proportional to the submitted video’s number of views. The Soloshot tracking camera system is a tripod that automatically keeps a camera rotated towards an athlete. The motion tracking camera system works with almost any camera, including iPhone and smartphone cameras with a third party tripod adaptor. Soloshot will automatically track and film moving subjects at speeds as fast as 140 mph, from distances up to 2000 feet, and has a maximum rotating speed of 40 degrees per second.
"We’re excited to have the Soloshot video contest winner and their guest join us on this exclusive film trip in paradise as we surf, kite, moto and wake in Cabarete," said Soloshot Inc.’s Co-Founder Scott Taylor. "We are equally as excited to watch the videos that people make using our tracking camera. It’s easy to enter – just create a video or multiple videos – there’s no limit to the number of videos you can submit. Post your Soloshot videos on YouTube and then email us the link to the email address on the contest details web page. Your name will be entered into the drawing each time your video is viewed. More videos will get you more views – and more chances for you to win and hang out with us in the sunny little beach town of Cabarete," concluded Taylor.
Soloshot is not just a surf camera – it is a tracking camera that can be used for any action sport. The high tech tripod base communicates with a small waterproof and shock-proof transponder that is attached to a comfortable, one-size-fits-all armband any athlete can wear. After an easy pairing sequence, the base automatically rotates as needed to continually keep the camera pointed at the athlete wearing the armband. Soloshot can be used by athletes in any sport and delivers high quality video footage without requiring someone to hold the camera for hours.
Soloshot tracking camera systems are made in the USA in San Antonio, Texas. They are $479 each and available only on soloshot.com. Complete Soloshot contest details, including how to enter if you do not own a Soloshot, can be found here.
