Polecam | Mark Sallaway
Polecam is a lightweight portable jib that is quick to rig and shoot, achieving dynamic footage from locations not usually possible with conventional camera cranes such as a jimmy jib. The small footprint enables it to be positioned where a conventional camera would be used and it's light enough for easy relocation. With a rig length of 1.5 - 7m the polecam is perfect for those otherwise impossible jib shots.
Our polecam rigs are fitted with the latest stabilised gimbals which can be rigged with a whole range of cameras including Sony FS5, A7Siii, Canon C500, BlackMagic, Toshiba IK-HD1 and the Antelope PICO High speed camera.
With the addition of a waterproof housing the polecam head becomes fully submersible, perfect for underwater to land transitions as we have used for Diving and Swimming coverage on major events.
Footage can be recorded in-camera or onto an external recorder such as the Shogun 7. For Live transmission our rigs can be connected direct into an OB Scanner via Fibre, fitted with a Digital microwave link or Live streamed over the internet.
Supplied in 2 flight cases and a tripod case the whole polecam system is easily transported and for 'flyaways' can be loaded into an aircraft hold saving expensive carriage costs.
Having worked on a vast variety of Television Broadcast and corporate productions, both live and pre-recorded, Mark is the longest serving and a most experienced polecam owner/operator available globally.
