Remote monitoring and easy time lapse!

For indoor use only

  • Capture months on one charge | Solar kit now available

    ShootX is a purpose-built WiFi enabled time lapse camera with the option for automatic upload of images via the CamDo cloudX platform.

    ShootX has multiple mounting connections and features a 120° wide angle lens to capture 2.6K resolution images. ShootX can be programmed for a single interval that repeats continuously. For increased programming flexibility without image upload features, see our BlinkX for the GoPro HERO5 cameras.

    ShootX is designed for indoor use only and should not be used outdoors without protection from rain/humidity.

    cameraHow does it compare to other cameras?

    As can be seen from the graphics below, ShootX provides high quality 2.6K images and associated time lapse videos. It is significantly better than typical 1080 resolution and blows lower quality 720 cameras out of the water. If you need 4K footage, use our GoPro and BlinkX product offering.

    buildQuick & Easy Set-Up

    • Get ShootX up and running in less than 2 minutes. Read the quick start guide here.

    date_rangeLong term time lapse

    • The ultra-low power consumption allows for a battery life of over 3 months with typical default settings of 1 frame per 10 minutes (without CloudX). Couple ShootX with a Solar Panel Kit or connect to mains power via USB to run it indefinitely with CloudX features. Also, check out our Time Lapse Solutions page for more information on all the parts you need for those longer term projects.

    assignmentBattery, Memory and Lens Specifications

    • Internal Battery - 4400 mAh (approx 17 Wh)
    • Internal Memory - 32GB SD Card (non-removable, can't be upgraded)
    • Field of View (FOV) - 120 degrees wide FOV

    ac_unitTemperature and Housing Specification

    • IP64 - use indoors or with weather protection outdoors (eg under an awning)
    • Temperature - 0° to 40° C / 32° to 104° F
      • Note that in sub-freezing temperatures, the camera battery will not charge to prevent battery damage. In addition to not charging, the battery capacity will be reduced (this is a normal characteristic of lithium-ion batteries). We also don't recommend long term deployment at temperatures below freezing (0 degrees Celsius) due to potential damage to the internal camera battery.

  • ShootX can connect to any 2.4GHz WiFi signal [802.11b/g/n] for internet access to utilize the optional cloudX features.
  • Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the ShootX field of view?

    ShootX has a 120° wide angle lens that is focused from 60cm (2ft) to infinity. This provides a wide depth of field focusing everything in frame at least 60cm away from the lens.

    What image file format does ShootX use?

    ShootX outputs JPEG images with a configurable JPEG quality. Note that setting JPEG quality above 90 significantly increases file sizes and affects battery life. If battery life and memory capacity is important, we recommend retaining images quality at 90.

    If I know approximately how long my project is, how do I determine the ideal interval between triggers?

    The ideal shooting interval is normally determined by the length of the final time lapse video clip, capacity of the SD card or battery capacity available. Our Time Lapse Calculator can be used to help determine the ideal interval between photos as determined by these variables. Just select ShootX as your camera in the calculator.

    Can ShootX be programmed to only capture images between set times on specific days?

    Yes, ShootX can be programmed to take a shot at a regular interval between set times each day. You can't have a different schedule each day however. For greater programming flexibility, see our GoPro controllers; BlinkX for HERO5 Black and HERO5 Session, or Blink for HERO3+ and HERO4.

    How do I change the interval between ShootX's image triggers?

    The default interval between images is 10minutes. To adjust the interval, ShootX can be programmed from a web User Interface or connected to a PC or MAC via USB to edit the settings.ini file using a standard text editor (eg. NotePad). See the ShootX User Manual for additional instructions.

    Does ShootX have automatic image uploading via WiFi?

    Yes, ShootX can connect to a WiFi signal to automatically upload each image to our cloud platform cloudX. See our CloudX page and ShootX User Manual for additional information.

    What if I don't have a cloudX Pro subscription?

    The photos will be stored on the camera, which you can download locally to a computer. You won't have access to the online cloud platform including features such as automatic upload, remote status monitoring, email notifications, remote firmware updating, etc.

    Why is "Always On" mode for batteries important?

    Since the camera turns off between triggers to conserve power, Always On mode is important to prevent an external battery pack from automatically turning off due to periods of inactivity. Most of the USB battery packs on the market have an automatic power saving feature which turns off the battery if the battery is not constantly supplying power to a device. If the camera is turned off for more than a few minutes between triggers, the external battery might automatically shutdown due to inactivity. However, our V15 and V44 have two modes of operation, the standard Auto Off mode and an Always On mode. The Always On mode prevents the battery from automatically turning off when insufficient current is being drawn due to the camera being turned off to conserve power.

    How can I mount ShootX?

    ShootX has two options for mounting, a standard threaded tripod insert (1/4"-20) on the bottom of the camera, and a vertical slot (24mm x 4.8mm) at the back of the camera.
    ShootX Mounting Locations
    We also have the ShootX mounting kit (see main tab).

    What are the dimensions of ShootX?

    ShootX is 75mm wide between each flat square surface and is 80mm wide between each of the flat triangular surfaces.

    What does ShootX weigh?

    ShootX weighs 300g. This compares to a GoPro HERO5 Black camera at 117g or the GoPro HERO5 Session at 74g.
