Fuji-17x zoom camera

Fujinon HD 17x zoom lens for C-Mount cameras

The new lens from Fujinon is what Polecam has been waiting for since its beginning. This HD quality and zoom capability now puts the Polecam jib on equal footing with its bigger Jimmy Jib contemporary, but has much quicker setup time and an unobtrusive profile. Perfect for those smaller venues. Polecam is multi-camera/ studio friendly, with the use of its dedicated RCP.

Want to use a Black Magic, C300 or Red camera? No problem. With the new larger, heavy duty camera heads available from Polecam, JGB can now easily mount larger cameras on the Polecams and control exposure, focus and record remotely too.
