The hardware is great. The app is very limited. I’m planning to use this with gamechanger using the 3rd party rtmp option. This doesn’t work. It blinks some thing on screen that i can’t read. Have submitted to support but nothing back yet.
Seems to track slowly on the bigger fields of 9v9 soccer, even 10-12’ in the air. Hopefully the app improves to cover the full field better soon.
The device is good most of the time, but sometimes it gets lost and stops tracking. I use the pixellot service with a GoPro so I have a comparison. I'm betting that the AI will get better in the iphone and in your service based on learning over time though and avoiding the $50 monthly payment is worth it for now. But as my kids get older than 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade or if I had high school kids where video mattered more for scouting, I'm not sure I'd use it unless it improved.
Set up from field-side and you're good to go. Enjoy the game while recording on its own.

What is Blink Focos?
Blink Focos is a smart tracking system designed for sports enthusiasts and their families. We can turn an iPhone into a fully automated camera to capture team sports with ease. Simple put your iPhone on our gimbal, along with Blink Focos App together, the system can automatically follow, record and live stream sports games like basketball and soccer games, with minimum interventions.
How does Blink Focos follow and track?
The video footage captured by an iPhone are analyzed by Blink Focos App based on the movements of players as well as the position of the ball. It would identify the hot spot during the game and determine which direction to track by sending the control commands to the Blink Focos gimbal via bluetooth. Blink Focos system can distinguish between players and spectators and broadcast the game in live time.
How to set it up?
Please have the following ready before set up:
- Blink Focos Gimbal (purchase here)
- iPhone X or a newer model with iOS 14 or newer
- Blink Focos App (downloaded from Apple App store)
- Tripod (sold separately) or any other tripod with 1/4” head in screw
Put iPhone on Blink Focos gimbal, and setup the gimbal on a tripod on the side of the sports field. Open Blink Focos App, connect App with the gimbal, and then click the recording button and you can just relax. Blink Focos system will automatically track players, follow through the game, record it, and/or live stream it to whoever you want to share.
Note: we recommend the gimbal to be placed near the center line of the sports field. Otherwise, the tracking performance would be compromised.
What sports can Blink Focos support?
Blink Focos can support basketball and soccer games. For basketball games, it supports half court and full court tracking. For soccer games, it supports 5x5, 7x7, 9x9, and 11x11 fields. It will cover more team sports, and adding more features like smart video editing and recording with multiple cameras (Focos Pro).
What phones Blink Focos can support?
Blink Focos supports iPhone X or a newer model with iOS 14 or newer. The support for Android phones is estimated to launch in the 3rd quarter of 2022. Please stay tuned.
Do you support DSLR or mirrorless camera?
No, it does not support.
Can Blink Focos be used as a handheld stabilizer?
Yes. Even though Blink Focos is designed to follow and record team sport games automatically on a tripod, it can be doubled as a regular handheld stabilizer for any occasions as well. Download the Gimbal Pro app for more features.
Where do you ship?
We are based in Mountain View, California, and we provide free shipping within U.S.. We provide international shipping with fees and deliver in about 5-8 business days.
What is the product warranty and what’s the return policy?
Blink Focos provides 1-year warranty. We also provide 30-day money-back guarantee. Please check the return policy here for more details.
What tripod should I use?
If you are trying to record sports on a small field such as basketball court or 5v5 soccer field, you could choose our portable Blink tripod T1, which is about 4 feet tall and super easy to fold and unfold.
On the other hand, if your goal is mainly for activities on a large filed such as 9v9 or 11v11 soccer, we highly recommend you use a 12 ft or taller tripod. It will give you a better tracking performance and a much better view angle. We are still working on Blink tripod T4 and it should be launched on US market early Oct.
In both cases, the customized tripods should provide a great user experience. That being said, you could also choose a third-party tripod. Look for 1/4" screw in head. The majority of tripods on the market should support that and thus compatible with Focos gimbal.
How does cloud storage work?
For now, we wouldn’t charge anything for the cloud storage. Feel free to upload your videos there and share with your families or friends.
Can you do individual tracking?
Individual tracking in team sports is very challenging. But we understand that our users essentially want to make the camera focus more on a specific person of interest. We are interested in making this happen in the near future. Please stay tuned.
How could I contribute?
You could let us know your feedback or even participate our Blink Beta program to help test new sports or new features. Email email@example.com for more information.
When will Android version come out?
We are working on it and are currently targeting at late November.
Is there any subscription fees?
We don't charge subscription fee and there's no any hidden fees beyond the charge for the hardware.
