SOLOSHOT

Filming yourself is not an easy task.  The advent of action POV cameras such as the GoPro and Contour has helped amateur videographers catch themselves on tape without the help of a cameraman.  These are great, but are usually only good for close shots either attached to the user or somewhere near, and only provide a fairly static shot.  SOLOSHOT helps you get those long panning shots all by yourself, of yourself, automatically.
