Now K-Tek offers the Avalon Traveler in muted red or blue anodized aluminum tubing - the only colored professional boom poles on the market.

With their distinctive hues, these attractive poles are an excellent way to differentiate different work crews, or to distinguish a kit and keep it apart from others in the field. And the new colored Travelers are not just pleasing to the eye. Against a background such as a blue sky, or a brick building, they blend more fully into the scene than traditional black boom poles, becoming a subtler, less conspicuous presence in the background.

The first professional boom pole designed to fit in a standard equipment case, the K-Tek Avalon Traveler stores quickly for easy transportation and expands from a minimum length of just 20” (52cm) to a maximum reach of 6‘7” (201cm). Telescoping sections lock together via K-Tek‘s proprietary “captive collett” coupling system, for maximum holding power with minimum torque. Also available in standard black anodized aluminum or in the same high-quality graphite tubing as the award-winning Klassic series, with an extended length of up to 7‘8” (234cm), this lightweight, versatile six-section pole is ideal for ENG, EFP, and DV production.

The K-Tek Avalon Traveler is available unwired or factory wired with a high-quality internal coiled cord and a sturdy male XLR receptacle mounted in the base. Prices start at $210.00.

The Best Deconstruction of a 4K Shoot You'll Ever Read
With higher resolutions and larger HD screens, wide shots using very wide lenses can be a problem because they allow viewers to see that infinity doesn’t quite resolve into perfect sharpness.
