The Charters pole is the brainchild of Hollywood cinematographer Rodney Charters ASC. It is a multi-purpose lightweight carbon fiber pole that can be used on any production. That high angle shot impossible to get any other way can now be achieved using the Charters pole. Unlike a regular audio boom pole it is designed to carry a range of objects and has an adjustable thread length on the top point that you would fix your equipment to. This feature allows for versatility in fixing 3/8inch as well as 1/4 20 screw threads, and with different depths. Yes, you can alter the screw length to suit the product being supported! The Charters pole can be used to support a lightweight brushless gimbal, small VR cameras, a small compact camera or GoPro for photography, small lights, flexible LED panels or a microphone. Optional accessories will allow the pole to be clamped or attached to objects for greater stability. Some cameras and gimbals will require specialized mounting and third party accessories for attachment. It has a unique combination of price, construction and performance that separates it from all other poles on the market. The carbon fiber used is strong, yet lightweight, and is lightly ribbed to provide a firmer grip.
