Polecam offers lightweight jib arm solution
Polecam is a lightweight, single-operator portable jib arm and broadcast camera system with a 5ft to 20ft reach.
Polecam weighs a maximum of 44lbs and packs away into two bags with a carrying weight of 77lbs. It can be rigged and de-rigged quickly with no setup tools, enabling smooth, floating crane shots quickly and efficiently with fast relocation.
The boom is rigged from one to five lightweight carbon-fiber tubes, including an elbow section that can be used to get around obstacles. The rig mounts on a standard lightweight tripod/dolly or on the supplied body harness for complete mobility.
