Polecam To Launch Wire Strut System At BVE

The Polecam team are offering visitors to their stand B10 at BVE in February the chance to be in seventh heaven – and try out a Polecam rig in its full 8-metre long glory for the first time at a show.
It will be demonstrated along with the newly-developed wire strut system which is designed to give added stability to the pole while still retaining the crane’s trademark flexibility and versatility.
Polecam’s managing director Steffan Hewitt said: "We’re excited to be launching the new wire strut system at BVE.
"It has been developed by working closely with experienced Polecam operators John Gillan and Chris Taber. We think it will prove a must-have piece of kit for new and existing Polecam operators because the wire-strut system can be used at any length to give rigidity to the pole – and it will be especially useful in reducing vibrations during rapid movement shots, high cross winds or even shots from moving vehicles."
The other star of Polecam’s offering at BVE will be the Polecam Starter Pack (PSP) which is aimed at DSLR users who want to take their footage to new levels by adding sweeping crane shots to their mix.
The small pack with big ambitions – the PSP weighs in at just 15kg and comes in a specially-designed foam insert designed to drop straight into a Pelicase (model 1770) – is compatible with the latest DSLR and lightweight video cameras.
Steffan Hewitt said: "Whether you’re shooting a high-end wedding or filming Frozen Planet, a corporate film about fork-lift trucks or winter sports, the starter pack will give you professional quality footage at an affordable price."
On Polecam’s stand, Steffan Hewitt will also be joined by Indiecam experts to demonstrate specialist IndiePOV cameras.
More kit to feast your eyes on at Polecam’s stand will include the Polecam Starter Pack PLUS, Polecam remote Wide Head, the GoalCam system with the Polecam Remote Control Panel, Indiecam cameras, Toshiba cameras, a range of lenses to suit the cameras and much more.
