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. It's powered by two internally housed Canon LP-E6 batteries, both of which are included with the kit and available from

TV Futures - The Shadowing Experience
Daniel Jones My name is Daniel Jones, and it is no accident that I’m currently studying BSc (Hons) Television and Broadcasting at the University of Portsmouth. Since completing GSCE media studies I have been constantly questioning what I watch with questions such as, “Wow, how was that filmed?” or “That looks amazing, I wonder how long that took?” It should come as no surprise that I made it a big focus of mine to get myself some real work experience to give myself some answers to these production questions.

4k and HDR Wireless Camera Transmitters
David Edwards Across the globe, live events represented over 50 percent of the most watched TV programs last year. However, big budget episodic shows are impacting live TV and the way viewers want to see their content. Viewers are demanding the same quality of production for live event broadcasts as they see in pre-recorded TV series and films. Producers of live content are looking to new, immersive and cinematic mobile camera views to better achieve these results. This presents a challenge to live production teams as these new camera views and angles must match the quality of the rest of the production -  the demand for mobility means that the cameras need to be wireless.
