Hague Camera Supports have been a leading solutions expert in Aerial Mast Photography and Filming for many years, supplying kits into universities, professional sport teams, estate agencies and sport analysis companies around the world. The new range of Hague Highshot kits are an extension to the current range and offer the flexibility and performance required for professional use.
The 6.2m (20ft 4”) Hague Highshot Mast provides an elevated view, with the ability to manually pan and tilt the camera. It’s ideal for compact cameras and small camcorders. Most modern cameras now have WiFi and Bluetooth capability so the camera can be controlled by an app on your phone or tablet which can be mounted at the base of the mast, or a cable can be run down the mast for monitoring and camera control. The Highshot mast is supplied with cable cleats should you be running cables down from the camera.
The telescopic mast is lightweight and quick to set up, it has a minimum height of 158cm and a maximum height of 620cm. It is supplied with a tilt head which has a quick release camera plate, making it easy to mount the camera. At the base of the mast a handle is attached to pan the mast with a control cable to tilt the camera. Next to the pan bar there is a mounting plate with both 1/4” and 3/8” threaded holes for attaching an articulating arm, plus a 5/8” (16mm) socket which is used to attach the supplied Hague Ball Levelling Head. The ball levelling head has a standard 1/4" camera screw on top which allows you to mount a viewing monitor directly or a phone/tablet when used with a relevant phone/tablet mount.
Indoor or outdoor, the mast gives you that extra height compared to a traditional tripod that may not be high enough. Compared with the traditional view the result is completely different and the image is greatly improved when taken from a higher view point.
