Technical Specs

Technical Specifications 


5 ½ oz


1 ¼ inches in diameter, 4 ½ inches in length


An internal 64GB Micro SD card (enough for 2,000 clay videos).

Video Recording:

Records in either 1080p Full HD at 100 fps, or 720p at 180 fps. The "Recording Setting" can be selected within our ShotKamPro mobile app. ShotKam has an accelerometer which registers forces and registers when there is a shot taken. Once the action of your shotgun is closed, the ShotKam begins recording a video through a memory buffer. If the accelerometer registers a recoil, then it saves the video to the memory card. If there is no recoil, then it dismisses the video. All true or report pairs taken within 6 seconds of each other will be saved as the same video.

Video Format:

MP4 Video Format


4x faster built-in Wi-Fi allows you to connect your ShotKam to any iPad/tablet/smartphone while in the field (no other Wi-Fi source needed). The ShotKam's Wi-Fi will appear in your phone's Wi-Fi Networks options. You can instantly share your shots to social media right from your phone. 


ShotKam is 100% weatherproof when the rear cap is on to cover the USB port. The ShotKam is OK in rain or accidental submersion when hunting, but it cannot be used for under-water sports. 

Mounting Systems:

A 12 gauge mounting bracket is included with your ShotKam purchase. This can be attached to any break-action, semi-auto, or pump shotgun. There are additional sub-gauge brackets available: 20 Ga, 28 Ga, .410, or 12 Ga side-by-side.


The ShotKam's housing material and mounting brackets are aircraft-grade aluminum.

Ground Game = 6 seconds pre-shot, 20 seconds post-shot

Paper Targets = 2 seconds pre-shot, 1 seconds post-shot

“Long” recording time = TWICE the normal recording time
“Extra Long” recording time = FOUR times the "Normal" recording time

The internal lithium-ion battery is rechargeable and the life expectancy is 3 years. Your ShotKam can be charged using the USB cable provided with every purchase. A battery replacement costs $40 and must be done at our warehouse in Florida.

Battery Life in Normal Shooting Mode (not Wi-Fi):

Clay Shooting: 5 - 6 hours.

Hunting: 5 - 6 hours (produces longer videos).

Battery Life in Wi-Fi Mode:

Typically lasts 1 hour in Wi-Fi mode.

NOTE: The Wi-Fi mode is for adjusting the ShotKam's settings and for “in the field” shot-analysis of problematic targets.

Battery Charging:

Charge the ShotKam using the provided USB cable to a computer, car charger, or wall adaptor (such as a cell phone wall adaptor). The USB cable will convert the input to the correct voltage, so it can be used internationally. A solid red LED indicated a full charge (takes about 2 hours).
