First, connect your Pivo to your smartphone. See the full article on How to get started with Pivo.
Once you've paired your smartphone, the app will open in Capture Preview. You can change your settings either in the Capture Preview by tapping on the icons or by swiping left to see the Mode Settings. In the Mode Settings, tap the help icons to see the tutorial and remote control guide . To close the Mode settings, simply click on the confirmation button or swipe back to the Capture Preview.
To change your settings in Capture Preview, follow these steps:
1. Tap on the No Tracking icon and select the AI tracking icon
2. Swipe the tracking options to select Horse Tracking
To change the settings in Mode Settings, follow these steps:
1. Swipe left to see the Mode Settings
2. In Mode Settings, under Tracking, select AI Tracking
3. Click on the confirmation button or swipe back to the Capture Preview
4. Swipe the tracking options to select Horse Tracking
With Position Tracking, Pivo will keep you on the left, middle or right side of the screen while you are being tracked. Adjust the position of yourself or your horse on the screen to optimize your tracking.
For Photo Mode, trigger Pivo by either Voice, Gesture Command or Still Motion. See the article on Smart Capture for more information.
Burst & Rapid
With Burst On, Pivo will take multiple pictures for each shot and let you select the best one. You can choose between 5 or 10 pictures for each shot. If you turn off the Burst, Pivo only captures one picture for each shot. Burst shot is ideal if you are moving around with your horse and want to capture the best pose together!
Adjust the tracking speed and sensitivity for your Pivo here. Pivo has 3 tracking speed settings (Slow, Normal, Fast), whereas Pivo S has 4 tracking speed settings (Slow, Normal, Fast, Frenzy). Slow is a great option for smoother tracking capabilities, whereas Fast and Frenzy can sharply pick up your every move and change in direction.
By activating Predictive Follow, Pivo will try to follow you even when you are out of frame. If you move out of frame, Pivo will continue in the direction you were last moving for a further 40 degrees. This is Pivo predicting where it should follow you. If Pivo cannot track you after 40 degrees, it will stop. Predictive Follow is a great option for when you're looking to ride fast and may move out of frame, so Pivo can predict where you'll be no matter where you go.
After you enable tracking exposure, Pivo will prioritize the exposure of the subject or object being tracked. With Horse Tracking, Pivo will prioritize the horse over the background so that your horse is evenly exposed throughout the whole shot. If you're riding in an area with uneven lighting, or in the morning or afternoon where the sun is brighter on one side of the screen, we recommend turning Tracking Exposure on. With Tracking Exposure on, your horse will be evenly exposed no matter whether the background gets darker or lighter, and Pivo will be able to track your horse easier. Without Tracking Exposure enabled, the exposure of the whole shot will be automatically considered and evened out.
Photo & Video Mode
When in Photo mode, simply press the Shutter button to take pictures. Tap on the gallery button, left from the Shutter button, to view the pictures. On the top left corner of the screen, you can tap on the icons to switch the camera or turn on your flash.
Tap the Video button to switch to Video Recording Mode and press the Record button to start shooting. While recording, you can take a screenshot by tapping the button on the left, pause and rerecord by tapping the button on the right or finish recording by pressing the button in the middle.
