Polecam adds Ronin gimbal for Red Bull Cliff Diving in Texas - Polecam is now super stabilised Posted: 09/06/2015
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."

SeeSense enhances its IK-HR1P compact HD camera

Unprecedented sales of the SeeSense IK-HR1P CS compact full HD camera, has led the company to manufacture a second and improved batch of this unique upgraded version of the Toshiba IK-HR1S camera. 

The new front of the SeeSense version of the camera includes major flare related refinements to the sensor mask to reduce any non-image forming light contamination of the sensor.  Additionally the casting surface is chemically blacked to minimise internal reflections between the lens and camera. Compatibility with existing C-mount lenses is maintained with a C-CS adaptor 5mm ring included with the upgraded camera.
