ProAm USA, a manufacturer of production equipment for film and video enthusiasts and professionals, recently released the Telescopium Camera Crane. A new addition to ProAm USA’s revered lineup of cranes and jibs, the Telescopium is a versatile jib designed to allow DSLR and compact camera users to get dynamic crane shots with effortless setup.
Filmmakers shooting on a budget or guerrilla style don’t always necessarily know what situations they might encounter. Versatility and ease of setup are required features in the gear they choose to bring on an outing. Smooth, professional shots are also a necessity. But without using a stabilizer like a crane, shaky shots and indecisive movements are an inevitable part of the filming process. With the Telescopium, filmmakers on the move can make fluid, dynamic camera movements within seconds, allowing them to easily capture the perfect shot at a price that can’t be beat.
This innovative design from ProAm USA supports DSLR or compact cameras up to six pounds and collapses to 42 inches. At just 9.5 pounds, the super light and compact Telescopium can be strapped to a backpack and then instantly put into use. Extending from just over three feet to a full eight feet, it quickly adapts when needed, featuring a tool-free design with no removable sections, unlike traditional cranes that must be assembled and fine-tuned. The super smooth bearing base, which allows for 360-degree pans, mounts directly to tripod legs and eliminates the need for a fluid head. It is both stylish and incredibly durable with a body made entirely of strong, yet lightweight aluminum, resulting in a stabilizing jib built to last. The Telescopium comes with a lifetime warranty, offering the promise of quality and affordability that has given ProAm USA its dependable name in the film equipment industry.
