If you are a programme maker and not using Polecam, then you really should be looking at what it can quickly do to elevate your output to another level. Polecam continues to offer a broad spectrum of crane platforms to suit all kinds of shooting and at all levels including 4K.

The modular build also provides a great platform for minicam manufacturers such as Antelope Pico, IO Industries , Panasonic, Toshiba and more, these can be flown out to a reach of 8m.

Graeme Chapman, Managing Director of Polecam Systems said “With the range of exciting new large sensor video and DSLR cameras that can now be used on Polecam, as well as the great new HD and 4K minicams, you have a very exciting single-operator lightweight and easily transportable crane system that will add production value to any production. Polecams success keeps on growing, with many owner operators now around the world. We expect to see many of them turning up too, as most of our new features can be added as upgrades to earlier rigs.”
