The Motion Tracking iPhone Cameraman

Recording home videos is an important part of keeping tabs of those memorable moments of family life. With gadgets like the iPhone and other smartphones today, it is easier to record videos at any time, especially when a special moment happens that just needs to be recorded in video. But even there, there might be the issue of who will be recording the video. Most of the time, the “cameraperson” will almost always be out of the picture, eventually missing out on being part of the memory. It is a good thing that there is a device like the Motion Tracking iPhone Cameraman to save the day.

The Motion Tracking iPhone Cameraman is a unique device to have in a home where memories are always recorded into video. It makes use of the iPhone’s video camera in order to record video. But it does more than that.

This iPhone mount can hold the iPhone in place in order to record home videos. But what makes this mount unique is that it can pan and tilt while recording, all the while tracking the motion of the subject even if it moves around. This is made possible by a small and wearable wireless transmitter that the subject of the video can clip into clothing or wear over the neck. Every time the subject moves with the transmitter, the device follows and swivels into place to get the right angle for recording video. The transmitter also comes with a built-in microphone in order to capture audio during recording.

The Motion Tracking iPhone Cameraman can follow a subject to record for up to 33 feet away. The mount is powered by 2 AA batteries that is good for up to 4 hours of recording. The transmitter on the other hand is powered by two AAA batteriesand is good for up to 10 hours. The Motion Tracking iPhone Cameraman is available at Hammacher Schlemmer for US$200.
