About Us

Polecam was founded in 1998 by Steffan Hewitt, BSc(hons) Metallurgy & Material Science.

Steffan's background includes a spell as an apprentice cameraman/editor for FM Television covering all forms of motorsport and then as a freelance extreme sports cameraman including filming from helicopters, motorbikes and cablecam. A steadicam operator who also spent 4 years on the Windsurfing and Snowboard world tour.

It was while on the Windsurfing World Tour that Steffan created his very first Polecam.

While directing a series of windsurfing kit commercials in Hawaii, he needed to obtain close wide-angle front sequences of a windsurfer in action, shot from a tracking boat or jet ski. Steffan improvised a rig comprising a miniature camera on a carbon-fibre windsurfing mast. Returning to Britain, he developed a lightweight go-anywhere rig with a remote joystick controlling a high-precision pan and tilt head. Polecam is now supplied with a range of options all with precision engineered remote controlled pan/tilt heads.

Polecam Limited is active globally from its Headquarters base near Bedford, England and is recognised across many different markets to include Broadcast, Extreme Sports, Medical, Military & Security, Industrial & Commercial, Corporate, Natural History and emerging markets for specialist Property, Wedding and Music environments; as the market leader for super lightweight, highly portable camera jib, minicams, lenses and remote control systems.

Polecam is proud of its heritage and encompasses a broad range of complementary skills in-house to include 3dCad Design & Modelling, Engineering and Design workshops, Assembly and Test areas, Warehousing & Despatch, Sales & Marketing and Accounts & Administration.
Additionally Polecam employs and utilises the skills and services of UK based suppliers and manufacturers - which enables and ensures the highest quality is achieved throughout each process for each and every rig.
