Go Film Yourself

Did not mean to be rude, but if selfies are too last century for you, you may want to go film yourself instead. This is your automatic cameraman. You can mount your camera or camcorder (5lbs max) on it and it will record you, with 360 pan even if you are running (traveling) at 143mph and 2000ft away.

Started from a kickstarter project, Soloshot has now a second version. I am not a fan of 1st launch always trying to be safe side, after all it ships all the way from the other end of the globe with no local warranty.

Users
Sportsmen, Parents, Teachers, Presenters, Film Makers.

Likes
A wide range of use.
For sports usage especially, honestly, there is only so much POV I can handle. A zoomed out view describing the skate moves much appreciated.
Most importantly for me, a highly charged presenter/lecturer who likes to walk up/down the floor and aisle will not tax the camera operator.

Dislikes
No auto tilt. Comes in a 4x4x16″ 6lbs box, costing US$79 for International Shipping.

American Sharia, the movie

We both saw Omar Regan at the Twins of Faith 2012 in Putrajaya. We even bumped into him at lunch time. A real entertaining guy on stage, and real humble of stage. I mean how many of us consciously and/or consistently go around asking strangers to make doa for you?
Anyway, he is known for being probably the halal version of Chris Tucker. Yah, that US movie star.

Omar Regan has now set his heart and soul on something bigger! Halalywood! Yes! A Halal version of Hollywood.

Here is the trailer for their upcoming first blockbuster movie, Insyaallah…

the American Sharia

He is crowdfunding too via KickStarter. Rather than getting big house production…..I guess, this is the best way to keep the American Sharia movie funding halal.
May Allah bless this brother and the team.

In the meantime, I look forward to meet Omar Regan, Insyaallah this weekend at TOF2013. Hope to tell him I had backed his project and a couple of my friends too.
