Polecam Systems is the company today that has grown from the early days when extreme sports cameraman Steffan Hewitt designed and built the first Polecam rig for himself to use, and when others saw what it could achieve, they wanted one themselves.
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 will take a DSLR or Black Magic Design Cinema camera right up to the full Polecam rig with 7th Heaven extended reach of 8m/26 feet.
There’s a whole range of cameras, heads, accessories, recorders, not to mention 3D, underwater add-ons and Extreme SloMo too.
Polecam will change the way you shoot and the way you think about shooting.
