Reviews

Welcome the NEW ShotKam

Rail Model

ShotKam is a powerful camera that captures every shot and reveals your point-of-aim. Its elegantly designed bracket mounts to any Picatinny, Weaver, or Glock rail. We believe that shooting is a sport that requires extreme alignment between mind and body. The biggest culprit for a poor group of shots at the range is a false perception of why you missed. Was it your gun’s performance or your gun-sight alignment? Why was there inconsistency and an offset in one direction? For years, no technology could help you overcome these obstacles... until ShotKam. ShotKam captures the reality of your shot to give the objective feedback you need to make an adjustment. The way we challenge the game is by making a tool that is simple-to-use, beautifully designed, and worth its weight in gold.

Built-in Wi-Fi

  • Allows you to connect any Apple or Android mobile device directly to the ShotKam. No other Wi-Fi source needed. The ShotKam Wi-Fi will appear in your Network options.
  • Watch your live stream ShotKam videos while in the field.
  • Customize your settings, watch your videos, and instantly share your shots on social media right from your phone.

Slow Motion Playback

  • Records in Full HD x 100 frames per second. This equates to one video frame approximately every 3 yards as the bullet travel towards the target.
  • The "Normal" playback speed is 1/3 speed, but this can be adjusted for slower or faster playback preferences.
  • Videos can be watched frame-by-frame to study trigger-pull, etc.

Accelerometer Activation

  • The internal accelerometer detects when the gun action is closed, then starts recording a video through a memory buffer (temporary storage). Once it feels a recoil, the ShotKam saves the critical portion of videos and slows it down to the selected playback speed.
  • All consecutive shots in a round will be saved on the same video. The camera waits 8 seconds after each recoil to see if there will be another shot. Once there are no recoils within 8 seconds, the ShotKam ends that recording and saves the video.
  • All videos are MP4 format and will not need edited.

Patented Reticle Alignment System

  • The "reticle" is the red dot or crosshair seen in ShotKam videos. 
  • It is aligned to your gun's point-of-aim.
  • To align the reticle, simply mount the camera to your gun's rail, point the bead of your gun at a target, then adjust the ShotKam's reticle alignment on your mobile device. The mobile app is available for Android and Apple devices.
  • The reticle allows you to study your gun's performance, gun-sight alignment, trigger-pull, etc.

Patented Shock Absorption

  • ShotKam is built with military grade materials to withstand the harsh environment of a gunshot (vibration forces to 1,000 Gs).
  • Our shock absorption system produces smooth video recordings.
  • The patented mounting bracket clasps any Picatinny, Glock, or Weaver rail. The recoil screw fits firmly into the rail recoil slot.

Rifles

ShotKam is an invaluable tool when practicing with black rifles. It allows you to watch your move to the target and study your trigger control frame-by-frame. This powerful camera gives you the insights needed to make key adjustments for better performance. What's more, you can end your day re-living the excitement of the range from the comfort of your home.

Handguns

When shooting for a consistent group of tight shots, the ShotKam brings you the clarity you need in order to improve. By studying your videos frame-by-frame, you can correct your trigger-pull errors and improve your gun-control technique. For the casual shooter, this means more fun on the range; and for the competitive shooter, the ShotKam can bring you winning scores.

Tactical Shotguns

ShotKam is a powerful camera when working on your tactical shotgun performance. It allows you to see the correct gun movement required in order to establish the correct lead. When shooting at an outdoor range, you can even watch your pellets travel towards your target frame-by-frame. This gives you the insights needed to make key adjustments which can mean improved performance and better scores.

Can the ShotKam be shipped internationally?

Yes, we ship internationally using FedEx International Priority. We do not have distributors outside the USA.

IMPORTANT: The international shipping cost does not include import fees. The ShotKam (digital video camera) falls under the Harmonized Tariff code: 852 580.1990. 

 

Target Setting Specifications:

The default setting is "Paper Targets," but other target types are available through the ShotKamPro app.

PAPER TARGETS:

  • Sleep Mode = Starts once there is no activity for 30 seconds. The Sleep Mode uses very little battery power. Either press the power button, close the slide, or bump the gun to awaken camera and begin a recording.
  • "Normal" Recording Time = 2 seconds before the first recoil and 2 seconds after the last recoil. The camera records video through a memory buffer, but only saves the important section of video (2 seconds pre-shot, then 2 seconds post-shot).
  • All shots taken within 8 seconds of each other will be saved on the same video. The ShotKam will continue recording video until there are no shots for 8 seconds, then end the recording.

CLAY TARGETS:

  • Sleep Mode: Begins after 30 seconds of inactivity. Close your action or bump the stock of the gun to waken the camera (solid green LED).
  • "Normal" Recording Time: 2 seconds pre-shot, 1 second post-shot.
  • Any two clays shot within 6 seconds of each other will be saved on the same video. The camera is designed to wait for the true or report pair.

FLYING BIRDS:

  • Sleep Mode: Begins after 60 seconds of inactivity. Either close the shotgun action or bump the stock of the gun to begin your recording (solid green LED). The camera will save the video if there is a recoil.
  • "Normal" Recording Time: 3 seconds pre-shot, 3 seconds post-shot.
  • Any shots taken within 9 seconds of each other will be saved on the same video.

GROUND GAME:

  • Sleep Mode: Begins after 300 seconds of inactivity (5 minutes). Either press the power button or bump the stock of the gun to begin your recording (solid green LED). The camera will save the video if there is a recoil.
  • "Normal" Recording Time: 6 seconds pre-shot, 20 seconds post-shot.
  • Any shots taken within 10 seconds of each other will be saved on the same video.

 

How do I start a recording?

The ShotKam has an accelerometer which registers forces (acceleration in the X, Y, and Z direction) to filter out the critical section of your shot. When the action of your gun is closed, the camera starts to record a video through a memory buffer (temporary holding place). Once the ShotKam feels the recoil of the gun, it saves the video from the memory buffer onto the memory card. All excess video before and after the shot will be deleted.

  

Is it weatherproof?

The ShotKam is 100% weatherproof when the rubber cap is on to cover the USB port. It is not submersible. The lens should be cleaned with a soft cloth after exposure to rain.

 

Is this an action camera?

No, it is an accelerometer-controlled aiming system (ACAS) video camera. It was developed by an engineer with expertise in military laser-targeting systems, and is designed for high shock and vibration environments. The ShotKam has a patented recoil absorption system which is combined with an accelerometer. This allows the ShotKam to buffer and only record-to-memory the few seconds before, during, and after the discharge of bows or firearms. It records video in HD 1080p at 100 frames per second.

 

Does the 4 ounce weight include the rail mounting bracket?

Yes, the camera plus the attachment mount weighs a total of 4 ounces (567 grams).

 

Does the ShotKam require batteries?

No, the camera has an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery. The battery lasts 2 - 4 years and is fully covered for 1-year, then can be replaced for $40. A replacement must be done from our servicing center in Florida, USA, and includes a full Shock and Vibration test after replacement.

   

How does the camera adjust to varying target distances and light conditions?

The unique light-balancing technology will automatically adjust to varying light conditions, whether indoor or outdoor. The field-of-view is optimized for targets ranging from 3 to 100 yards and is equivalent to 18 degrees. The effective magnification is 4x and this is equivalent to how your eye perceives the target distance.

 

Does the ShotKam have Wi-Fi?

Yes, it has built-in Wi-Fi which enables you to connect your mobile device directly to the camera while at the range. Download our free mobile app called ShotKamPro from the Google Play or App Store. Once the app has been installed, turn the ShotKam's Wi-Fi ON (one yellow and one green LED), then connect to the SHOTKAM network from your mobile device's Connections page.

 

What is the ShotKamPro App?

The ShotKamPro app is our mobile app used for customizing your settings and aligning your reticle. It is available for both Android or iOS on any smartphone, iPad, or Tablet that is from 2013 or newer.

 

How are the settings changed?

Turn the ShotKam into Wi-Fi Mode (hold power button 3 + seconds until both LEDs are on.)

Open the Settings icon on your Smartphone, iPad, or Tablet.

Go to Connections > Wi-Fi > SHOTKAM.

Once connected, go back to the phone's home screen and open the ShotKamPro App.

Press on the Setting icon and change the settings. Go back to the screen where you can see what the ShotKam sees and check that the settings in the top right corner are correct.

Exit the App and turn OFF the ShotKam.

 

Does the camera signal that a shot has been saved?

Yes, a solid green LED will light up once the action is closed (video is recording through a memory buffer), then a blue LED will flash after the recoil to signal that the shot has been saved.
