The POLECAM IPAD/TABLET MOUNT was created for a specific shoot whereby locating an iPad within the operator reach without compromising rig operation was critical. The system is adjustable and enables the operator to locate their iPad/tablet to any typical control position.
Polecam iPad mount is available for GBP195. Seen here with the iPad mini mounted in a Peli Vault (not included).


Need to shoot useable 4K footage on the move? The new PANASONIC HX-A500 wearable action camera gives 4k at 25fps plus 1920 x 1080 footage at 50fps and 848 x 480 at 200fps. It comes with all manner of accessories for mounting and has good low light qualities we found after testing at IBC.


Shown in Europe for the first time at IBC 2014, the ISEEI is a brand new handheld motorised gimbal designed for use with action cameras, such as GoPro's, as well as smartphones. Like other larger motorised gimbals, the ISEEI helps ensure that the footage produced is perfectly smooth and stable, remaining horizontally orientated at all times.
