Cliff Diving Update – Chile

There’s no better place to display The capabilities of Polecam’s ability to go anywhere. 100 feet up on the purpose built wooden platform above two huge waterfalls and spectacular gorge was the setting for the final Red Bull cliff diving event this year from Chile. John Gillan from JG broadcast Jibs had only to rope down 3 Polecam cases to the platform to complete the process of getting it there. Any other Broadcast jib would be impossible to get down there so easily.

I was using my trusty Sony FS5 camera with zoom lens on a 4m pole. Connected to an OB truck the pictures went live on RedBull tv.
