What will you do with yours?
Here's what we offer you:
- Professional yet friendly, honest and open communication - we don't do the "hard sell", we just enjoy working with other creative people! We'd love to hear about your project, expertise and work.
- Our time, attention and expertise in design, manufacture, sourcing and assembly of elevated imaging equipment - to ensure your camera / cameras and accessories are safe, secure and suitable for your project using this mast system
- Our recommendations on suitable remote camera controllers, including which camera manufacturers provide the best overall products for elevated photography and video - saving you time and money
- Thorough in house assembly and quality control - we test every single system we assemble prior to shipping
- We ship internationally, and we try our best to meet most deadlines for delivery - good quality carbon fibre material is expensive to acquire and stock, so same day / next day shipping is rarely possible - however, if a customer has a tight shooting schedule, we can arrange priority shipping - we have even delivered masts ourselves! The secret to us meeting your deadline is telling us well in advance.
Features and Benefits:
- 5.6m (approx. 18ft) telescopic platform - easy to use, reliable and stable
- Recommended Head Load - approx' 1.8KG at max extension, 2.2KG at reduced heights below approx' 14ft (more overlapping sections of carbon fibre add overall strength) - Please note - use common sense when trying to handle a weight at height on any type of mast, carbon fibre or aluminium. Weigh your kit - you do not always need a pan tilt head as our masts can be tilted without.
- High quality, lightweight 100% Carbon Fibre – weighing only 1.5kgs (including aluminium camera mount), engineered for high lateral and longitudinal strength when extended. Minimal flex and sway compared to lesser quality hybrid materials.
- Tried and tested with professional loads - such as the Osmo X3, Osmo X5, and heavier DSLRs with lenses.
- Easily portable – collapses to a length of 163cm - Lateral clamping system enables ease of carriage in small vehicles, saloons, estates and vans
