Forager Films and Autopod

Forager Films and Polecam Autopod

I've been covering a good deal of music with the Polecam recently but the Brass Band completion at the Sage Gateshead presented a particular problem with no non-crew members allowed on stage.

A natural alternative was the Autopod which I could match with my existing Long Head and FS7 camera. Even though the movement is less than a metre the Autopod gave us the potential to reveal from behind band members, music stands and racks of tubular bells as well as the natural panning and tilting of the head with the zoom facility of the lens.

Tom Paterson of Forager Films “gets in the swim” at Loch Lomond, Scotland for the European Games 2018 Open Water Swim

Polecam filming European Games 2018 Open Water Swim

Probably one of the most challenging events I've ever done with the Polecam - as pictures were being beamed live across Europe from a small boat over a mile out, on the very variable waters of Loch Lomond near Glasgow, UK.
After some extensive research I decided to use the FS7 camera body with the hand grip from the FS5 (as it works better remotely) on four metres of poles and the Ronin MX stabiliser due to its stronger motors. DJI make a counterweight kit for an extended wedge plate which enabled me to balance the camera with the Sony 18-105 lens. This meant that I had to counterbalance the whole rig with 38kgs which had no mean pendulum effect when the boat was moving at speed or the wind got up.
