Whether you are shooting DSLR video, a small movie or feature film with your camera, you need a high quality and well designed Boom pole to capture great pro audio and ensure that the process of filming is smooth. A camera's built-in microphone is rarely used in professional production, and an external shotgun mic is a necessity. But mounting a shotgun mic to a camera can unintentionally capture camera noise. To isolate the microphone and securely hold it while keeping it close to the action, you need the 8ft Boompole.
The filming process can be made Faster and more Efficient without any interruptions with the 8ft Boom pole & shock mount.
A universal dual-stage shock mount is included with our 8ft articulating Boom pole to allow easier filming with just about any microphone. The microphone attached to the shock mount is kept well isolated with the help of two separate sets of rubber bands which are used to hold the mike. The shock mount is connected to the boom pole with universal 5/8 inch threads.
Our 8ft Boom pole & shock mount come with a unique feature which differentiates it from conventional straight poles... the quick-interlocking articulating joint. The articulating joint allows you to bend and adjust the position of the boom pole, which ensures that it is hidden in the final shot and out of view of the camera. It allows the boompole holder to be closer to the scene but still remain out of sight.
On top of these great features, our 8ft Boom Pole & Shock Mount won't have your boompole holder complaining about the weight as the lightweight construction of the 8ft Boompole is just 1.3kgs (2.8 lbs). You can compress the 8ft boom pole & shock mount into a small 34" (86cm) length when closed without disassembling.
This versatile and feature packed 8 ft Boom pole & Shock Mount make it an indispensable piece of filming gear. It is used world wide for filming commercials, music videos and short or independent films. Add it to your arsenal and buy one today!
