Polecam At BroadcastAsia

News Image
Steffan Hewitt, originator of Polecam and director of Polecam Systems, has been at BroadcastAsia2013 with the company's two trading partners; H Warta and Antel Trading & Services.
Steffan was demonstrating the new Polecam Starter Pack, which together with the Long Head from the range of new Polecam heads allows a range of cameras to be mounted on the jib; including the new large sensor cameras and DLSRs.
Now the Polecam single operator jib system is opened up to using DLSR cameras from Canon, Nikon and others, and also to dedicated high end cinematic video cameras like the Black Magic Design Cinema camera, the Canon C300, and the high quality lenses available for these cameras. Iris, zoom and focus can in most cases be controlled from the rear of the rig.
Mr Hewitt said: "From the early days Polecam has always moved forward to reflect advances in technology, and to incorporate feedback from users and from my own use too. Now we have made a huge step forward, retaining the classic Polecam rig and all its advantages working with today’s latest HD minicams, but adding the new accessibility of the Polecam Starter Pack, making it easier to own by stripping out those parts which a new user may not ever need. But take a Starter Pack, add the new Long Head and a large sensor camera and you have a crane of Cinematic possibilities. Whatever your production, whatever your budget, Polecam makes crane moves affordable, and crane moves are a sure way to raise production values."
