Steffan Hewitt, originator of Polecam and director of Polecam Systems will be in Singapore at Broadcast Asia 2013 International Conference in June with Polecam Systems’ two trading partners H Warta, on stand number 4E3-01, and Antel Trading & Services on stand number 5F4-01. Steffan will be sharing his time between stands and demonstrating the new versatility on offer from the Polecam Starter Pack, which together with the Long Head from the range of new Polecam heads allows a wide range of cameras to be mounted on the jib including the new large-sensor cameras and DLSRs. The showing continues the success of penetration of this product from Europe to the Americas after a successful NAB show, and now into the South east Asia Pacific region.
Now the versatility, portability and speed of 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.
On show also will be the new Z10 high-performance HD Zoom lens and ZIF controller, as well as the well established classic Polecam rig and the Toshiba IK-HD1 camera, RCP, Polecam accessories like the Wire Strut System, lenses and the Goal Cam system.
Polecam’s attraction has always been a winning combination of portability, speed of rig/derig, adding production values without hassle, getting crane shots where no other crane could go, and getting right in to where the action is. Crane shots up a mountain! No problem. On a small boat! No problem.
Steffan has continued to develop and refine Polecam, never standing still, and today Polecam Systems offers a wide choice of ways to own a rig, from the Polecam Starter Pack, an entry level configuration that with the Long Head will take a DSLR, Canon C300, Sony Nex 700, Black Magic Design Cinema camera or similar. The full Polecam rig when configured as 7th Heaven has an extended reach of 8m/26ft and when fitted with a small profile HD camera can get you right in to where the action is, giving a unique creative viewpoint to your productions.
There’s a whole range of mini HD cameras, other specialised cameras, heads, accessories, recorders, not to mention 3D, underwater add-ons and Extreme SloMo too.
