Autopod - Cool

Polecam Autopod

The new Polecam Autopod system on stage at a Newcastle Upon Tyne Jazz club. Using an inverted Long-Head and my FS5 with an 18-105 lens. The combination of being able to vary the height, use the zoom lens and rotate the head make this a highly practical and versatile addition to the Polecam stable. The band liked it too as there were no sweaty cameraman sticking lenses in their faces ! You saw the future here first !!!

Perfect weather conditions as well although some of the mornings were as low as -12 degrees centigrade!

Both Polecam Picos as well as an HD Polecam at the start of the Downhill in conjunction with LMCs 5 other Ultra-motion Antelope MkII cameras created some stunning replay angles.
