This system is centred around a modular aluminium ‘back-end’, with an electronic, remote-controlled, pan/tilt head that fits the carbon poles, creating a simple yet effective camera crane. The Starter Pack Plus is an upgraded system that allows you to construct a crane tailored to your needs.

Whether you're filming from the back of a car, on a boat, or the edge of a mountain, the Polecam System navigates tight spots where a traditional crane would falter.

The PSP+ version is fully operational straight out of the box - all you need to do is add the camera of your choice. Power to the rig is supplied either by the AC/DC PSU or via standard "V-Lock" batteries (supplied) which can be locked on the backend of the PSP+ battery plate which is fitted as standard with "V-Lock" mounting brackets and manual power switchover.
