Polecam adds Ronin gimbal for Red Bull Cliff Diving in Texas - Polecam is now super stabilised

Polecam Systems has super stabilised the Polecam of DOP John Gillan by fitting and interfacing his new Ronin-M gimbal onto his Polecam.  The latest Red Bull Cliff Diving events were proving difficult due to the higher winds often associated with cliff tops.
Whether its a Jimmy Jib or a Polecam strong wind is always tricky for a jib but I knew that with the recent developments of gimbal technology this could be the answer.  Steffan and his team were great in getting this ready in time and the results were brilliant said John.

Against all odds John Gillan gets the shots Posted: 06/08/2014
Against all odds John Gillan gets the shots

UK DOP / Polecam owner operator John Gillan, booked to cover the Azores leg of the Red Bull Cliff Diving competition, flew in to the Azores on his way to the small island where it would take place, 1000 miles from the nearest city and 2 days away from shooting the event. It was not the ideal place to hear from the airline that brought him there "Sorry Mr Gillan, we have lost one of your Polecam flight cases."

Camera Corps Q-Ball Takes Red Bull Cliff Diving Right to the Edge

Q-Ball remotely controlled pan/tilt/zoom equipment from Camera Corps, a Vitec Group company with extensive experience in designing specialty camera systems, recently provided dynamic coverage of the Boston leg of the 2013 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series. When the event was held in Boston, it drew more than 25,000 spectators who watched the action from the only urban cliff diving platform in the series. A Q-Ball was mounted at the extreme edge of the platform that resided on the Institute of Contemporary Art roof 90 feet above Boston Harbor. Q-Ball supplied close-up coverage of the divers while delivering the excitement, power and grace of the event to the home audience in full HD.
