There is no doubt that a well-executed aerial shot can add beautiful visuals to any production. Up until the rise in popularity of drone technology, these shots have largely been unobtainable. However, with popularity comes over-saturation. And with this recent over-saturation of drone use, have come regulations. Though almost any body can still get a drone, we are seeing a rise in limitations of its use – including required certification, air space restrictions, and even just irritated civilians launching projectiles to knock them right out of the sky.
Perhaps the best alternative to these limitations imposed on the drone market are the rise of cable cam systems. These systems allow much more fluidity and control over your shots, and can go where drones cannot. In the interview below, correspondent Nicki Sun takes a look at the High Sight Pro Cable Cam System, one of the more simple yet advanced cable cam systems in the market.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: High Sight Pro houses the best cable cam motion control technology to date. With its onboard sensing, High Sight Pro has micro second reaction times that produce perfectly smooth acceleration, deceleration and direction changes. High Sight is the only cable cam with built in safety features such as anti stall, anti rollback, and anti slip technologies.
With this ground breaking technology, High Sight Pro comes to a smooth stop at each end of the line automatically, thus eliminating the need to watch anything but the monitor. This features lets a single operator use the system to its full potential and never miss a shot.
High Sight Pro is designed for the professional user. Its universal mount wire damper can accommodate most any gimbal and can carry up to a 15 lb. payload. The damper plate comes with a 3/8″ center hole, two 1/4″ slots and hole patterns to match the Ronin M or Movi toad in the hole.
Camera movements need to be precise, fluid and on time. Why try to make two operators think as one? High Sight Pro only requires one operator enabling you to have total control of the shot. Within minutes you will become comfortable with the controls and can start capturing amazingly smooth and dynamic shots.
Quick and Easy
Don’t fiddle and fuss. From rigging to shooting in less than 5 minutes the cable cam has never been better. The High Sight System uses single sided pulleys so you can quickly hang it on the line while “Line Lock” ensures it will never fall off.
Mulltiple system fail safes have been designed to provide confidence to the user and those below. Fly over crowds, water and other potentially dangerous situations with peace of mind.
Wires and electronics have been internalized in the stout aluminum frame to keep things protected from the elements and snag free. At only 19″ long High Sight Pro can easily be packed into harsh and remote shooting locations.
Gets the shot
High Sight cannot crash, it is not effected by wind, altitude or temperature. Fly it right on the action, over crowds or through tight spaces, over and over again. With up to 4 hours of battery life you can practice the shot then capture the action with ease.
No post stabilization needed, period.
