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.


Cliff Diving - Swiss Style

Not content with complicated watch mechanisms - cliff diving needs a lot of building too!

John Gillan again providing unique shots. Next stop Copenhagen city centre harbour.


Those film boys!!!!!

Ronin M gimbal on the Polecam with an Alexa mini

A photo of the Ronin M gimbal on the Polecam with an Alexa mini on board, shooting for an American drama series called London Kills. Can't say much more than that really about it except they could only use a Polecam on a balcony to get some shots swinging out and looking down to the ground. That's what it's for.

I did giggle though when I turned up and they presented me with their initial thoughts of a rig set up. See my two shots - before and after!
