"SoloCam" developer Benny Goldstein says the evolution of smartphone cameras used for selfies has made it possible to capture images with incredible high image quality. However, on the other hand, he also pointed out that the sound quality of the microphone has not evolved much. In particular, when a smartphone is attached to a selfie stick, the distance between the photographer and the microphone increases, making the recording environment even worse.
"SoloCam" is a selfie stick that solves this problem. A microphone is attached to the handle so that the sound can be picked up right next to the photographer. The design of the microphone is like a microphone owned by a TV station reporter. If you take this and shoot a video, you can feel like a news reporter.
The handle has a unique shape. This shape not only allows you to hold the selfie stick for a long time, but also reduces camera shake (to some extent).
Goldstein is currently running a campaign to recruit investors on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo to commercialize SoloCam. At the time of writing, one "SoloCam" is available with a $ 49 investment. The amount required to obtain it will increase as the campaign progresses, and the retail price after the end will be $ 99. Shipment is scheduled for December 2015.
