    Polecam in a factory environment 

    "This was a fun and fast shoot," said Steve Rausch of Focused Motion. "We had roughly 10 people to shoot in 7 different locations on the schools' campus plus one location offsite. We had 10 hours to do it. The easiest part of the job was the Polecam. The client actually added a shot to the schedule when she saw how fast we were moving. That's the beauty of the system."

  • UEFA & Wheelchair Rugby gets the Polecam look

    UEFA filmed with Polecam camera crane 

    Neil 'Lammo' Lammond took some of his many jibs to Wembley Stadium for a test during the England vs. Estonia game. The new Wembley stadium is an "all viewing stadium" so a Jimmy Jib crane behind the goal was a no go as it restricted the view for the fans. Undeterred, he pulled another jib out of his arsenal, this time a Polecam.

    Rigged with a Long Head, Toshiba IK-HD1 and the new Fujinon XT17 controlled by the Polecam ZIF handle. "The pictures show it all." said Lammo, "Polecam just disappears into the back ground due to its low profile nature. The new lens was a joy to use. Just what I've been

  • More Amazing Spaces!!!!!

    Polecam camera Jib used for filming 'Amazing Spaces'

    Series 4 of George Clarke's Amazing Spaces started on Thursday night (23/10/2014) on Channel 4 in the UK at 8pm. It can be re-watched on 4oD.

    I've been Director of Photography of the show for the past two years now and have shot every episode since half way through the first series.

    I use my Polecam almost every day of filming and I have to say, if there ever was a single piece of equipment which is tailor made for a particular production, it's the Polecam on this show.

    Specialist Cars BMW Snow Challenge filmed using Polecam camera Jib

    To demonstrate the importance of BMW winter tyres over summer tyres Specialist Cars of Stevenage, Luton and Tring used the Hemel Hempstead Snow Centre to demonstrate both BMW and MINI with winter tyres on the snow. Ally Adams of Epitech used a Polecam with a Panasonic 250 on a Polecam as well as a GoPro for the wheel shots.

    "Only having two hours, from 10pm to midnight to shoot this, a lightweight rig was essential and that's the Polecam every time, in fact I'd use it all the time. It's our next purchase" said Ally.

    John gillan of JG Broadcast Jibs used a Black Magic pocket cinema camera shooting in 'RAW' format for the event. 'It was a great camera to use as it allowed a long jib length but low overall weight, allowing me to move freely and quickly around the artificial grass. A manoeuvre much less easy when using a heavier
