K-Tek boom poles help capture images for Indian promotional video

Photographer Roger Berry is using K-Tek’s Klassic K-202 and Klassic Traveler K-87 boom poles to support his gear for underwater images to promote IndiaVRTours.

Berry shoots 360-degree spherical panorama photos. He now uses the Canon 5D MkII with a Nikon 10.5mm fisheye lens. The K-Tek boom pole has many uses. It’s a monopod or long pole for high shots. Users can also flip it upside-down for low shots, extend it out over water, or out windows, cliffs and bridges.

Taking K-Tek poles under water is not a problem, since the booms have specific water release points throughout, from the headpiece, to each section and the bottom. So the pole won’t get filled with water.

Berry has used the K-Tek boom to ride on elephants, camels, horses and on motorbikes with the pole under his belt. He uses two off-the-shelf K-Tek poles to accommodate different lengths.

The K-202 extends to 16ft. For shorter lengths, he uses a Klassic Traveler (K-87), which folds down to under 2ft and extends to 7ft 3in.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
