We are currently assembling and testing our first large batch of SOLOSHOT3 units. High volume production units are expected to begin shipping in the second half of October, with the majority of pre-orders shipping in November as we cautiously ramp up mass production. Pre-orders will ship in the order that they were placed.
We recognize and sincerely apologize for being significantly later than originally planned, but we are more confident than ever that the massive engineering effort, attention to detail and cautious production ramp-up schedule will absolutely make SOLOSHOT3 the best robot cameraman yet!
When we began designing SOLOSHOT3 in early 2015, we truly thought we had budgeted for the types of delays we experienced bringing our first two generations to life, but, in hindsight it is absolutely clear we underestimated the difficulties of developing on cutting-edge chips and, for the first time in our history, partnering with high volume consumer electronics manufacturers instead of doing all the production ourselves. The process has been both humbling and inspiring, and we hope our dedication and commitment to function, form and quality comes through loud and clear when you begin using your SOLOSHOT3.
We are sorry for the many inconveniences and lost opportunities this delay may have caused. We hope you find comfort in knowing that we continue to work our engineering butts off to ship a world-class product to you soon, and that we will continue to work our butts off long after we ship to bring new software, firmware and app functionality to your SOLOSHOT3!
We Listened! Upgraded Features
Thank you to everyone who has been sharing feedback, concerns and suggestions with our tireless Customer Service team! We take every bit of it into consideration when making product decisions. Thanks to you, everyone’s SOLOSHOT3 hardware will now include the following upgrades at shipping:
- HDMI out has been added! Direct your video feed to a monitor or switcher! We will keep you updated on launch video resolutions and post-shipping expanded resolutions.
- Mic Jack upgraded from 2.5mm to 3.5mm in order to accommodate more standard mics. No more jack adapter is needed for 3.5mm mics!
