Product Detail Information

Polecam Starter Pack


│Description│

Polecam are the recognised designers and originators of a super lightweight, highly portable, low profile and versatile crane system that can be deployed and relocated in less than 10 minutes. Constructed from hi-grade aluminium, the backend section provides the main structure of the rig and accommodates the integral counterbalance system. Declassified military specification Carbon Fibre is used for the crane arm - this technology provides a super low profile, high strength rigid platform for any professional or amateur film maker alike.

Created in response to demand for a simple yet effective modular camera crane for Camcorders such as the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, Sony NEX FS700, Panasonic AF101, Canon C300&500 and for D-SLR cameras, the Polecam Starter Pack (PSP) and Polecam Starter Pack PLUS (PSP+) are a great way to enter the exciting world of camera jibs and getting those long sweeping crane shots.

In order to properly accommodate the comparatively bulky Camcorders and D-SLR cameras, Polecam decided to undertake a full re-design of their award winning remote controlled Pan & Tilt head. The new designs had to be able to cope with significantly increased load and have greater flexibility for the larger camera dimensions.

Our engineers came up with an all new electronic head design which offers superb control characteristics, precise damping and inspired flexibility!
