There has been a few variations of hand held cranes over the years, but none as crackalackin as the fish pole styled RodCam.
The RodCam is a handheld camera crane for dynamic and smooth camera movements. Based on a fishing-rod with a hanging pendulum, you can carry it as easy as that. The stabilized camera reaches into the center of action and the foldable rod system allows you to simply walk wherever you want to go. You move light-footed in crowded areas and get close to distant creatures.
