There are few major sporting events these days that don’t use a Spidercam or two. Having exploded onto the market in 2007, they’ve been successfully deployed at high-profile football, cricket and tennis matches around the world, as well as eSports events and the Olympic Games. Bringing novel perspectives and dramatic camera flights never before seen on TV, Spidercams have been a popular item of Gearhouse stock since we first had them available to hire.
And the Spidercam’s popularity doesn’t end at sport. With a flying area of 250 square meters and silent operation, this aerial camera system is ideal for any visually complex event, from concerts to award ceremonies to movies.
The cable-suspended Spidercam can move both vertically and horizontally over its target area, effortlessly switching between close-ups and panoramic views, offering stable pictures from any position, whether stationary or moving. It has a larger action radius than any crane or rail system, and the combination of strong winches and lightweight dolly make it more versatile than any other suspended camera system on the market.
As if that’s not enough, is also has a modular design, which makes it easy to set up and quick dismantle after filming.
