Needs some updates

Amazing concepts though still need some bugs worked out.

Apple app seems to work much better than android - apple for the most part tracks the players and the game and moves with the games. It doesn't seem to miss as much.

android app seems to track a referee or a coach and misses a lot of the movement of the game. Doesn't move to the basket or track the ball. Tends to just follow movement so it doesn't work as well.

uploading to the cloud is a bit clunky and sometimes needs multiple tries to get it to finally upload.

This could be amazing if they could work these bugs out. Please update. I have recommended this to a lot of people though I can't give it a 5 stars until it actually captures the entire game without a large amount of flaws. thank you.

Blink for soccer.

Does not follow very welll. Otherwise good stuff

Kent Pletcher
Really good

All my daughters play sports. I've been using this at my High Schooler's Varsity Spring League and her Club games. I'm impressed that it catches as much of the game as it does. It's definitely better than me videoing.

It still has some improving to do in these areas:
–it does not do well with fast breaks
–steals at half court that lead to a fast lay up at the other end
–stopping on the ref that stays at half court

I'm learning that the closer you are to the court the better it does. Also, I purchased the Tripod T4 and I extend it to about 7 or 8 feet depending on the environment. So, it does better at a height over people. Also, when I'm on the bench side, the videoing sometimes gets caught up with those subbing in, especially if they are standing up. I want to start tweaking the pan width. It likes to pan almost at a 180º and that is too much.

All in all, this is a good solution, unless you're a born camera man and don't get caught up in the game. But that is not me. I want to watch my kids in the heat of the battle and this lets me do just that. Then, later, I can review and also share with family.

One more thing, I have not tried the live streaming feature. Videoing one Spring League game (20 minute half, no time outs) takes about 40% of my iPhone battery.

Soccer recordings

The Xbot does well, you need to make sure to adjust the height of your camera per the size of the field. Sometimes it misses action, but for the most part it's good. At this price point, it's well worth the money.

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.

We use AI technology to detect the position of the ball and players, analyze the speed, pose and actions of players. Our patented algorithm will decide where the action is based on the information analyzed, and control the gimbal to follow through. In particular, all these are completed on smartphones real time.

How to set up Xbot Blink Focos gimbal?

Please have the following ready before set up:

- Xbot Blink Focos Gimbal

- 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 Xbot 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. Xbot 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.

It will  cover more team sports, and adding more features like smart video editing and recording with multiple cameras (Focos Pro).

What phones does Xbot Blink Focos support?

iOS: iPhone 11 or a newer model with iOS 14 or above. iPhone X works, but can be slow.

Where do you ship products from?

We are based in Mountain View, California, and we provide free shipping within the U.S.. We provide international shipping with fees and deliver in about 12 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 Xbot gimbal track individual player?

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.

What if I have questions and feedbacks?

You could let us know your feedback or even participate our Blink Beta program to help test new sports or new features. Email support@blinktech.us for more information. 

Is there any subscription fees?

We don't charge subscription fee and there's no any hidden fees beyond the charge for the hardware.
