 Evans company bought Polecam Starter Pack PLUS worth £6,000 from Polecam reseller CVP to go with two brand new Canon C300 video cameras worth £11,000 each.

 Steffan Hewitt, Polecams managing director, said: We are absolutely thrilled to have shipped our 400th rig especially to a high-profile customer such as Chris Evans.

 The first Starter Pack was sold in 2011 and it has helped boost sales tremendously because it is so versatile and adds such great production values for videographers and smaller companies.

 Maybe UMTV will get some brilliant crane shots with their Starter Pack for Chris Evans forthcoming Carfest festival in August, in aid of Children In Need and if he needs help the Polecam boys are always willing to lend a hand!
