Polecam made the U.S. debut of its Starter Pack at the 2011 NAB Show. The new rig is designed for use with the latest-generation compact camcorders and DSLR heads while retaining all the versatility for which Polecam systems are known.
The Polecam Starter Pack has three interlocking carbon-fiber poles to give a forward reach of nearly 12ft. This enables overhead pan-and-tilt sequences to be performed without the logistical or safety issues that arise when using a heavyweight crane. The rig also can be expanded gradually into a full-scale system spanning up to 26ft.
