Sony HX9V Spun on Painters Pole + Palo Alto

After recently posting up the Palo Alto adapter from, I decided to take mine out for a spin (literally). With this little adapter and a cheap Shurline Pole, you can get some really cool views in both Photos and in videos. It's more than strong enough for something like the Sony HX9V. This time out, I decided to see what it would look like if I spun it around pointing towards myself. It's definitely weird, but stems more ideas on some cheap yet creative camera movements. I'm seriously going to stack two of these poles together to see if I can double the height....

    @apostolos - Next batch will be cheaper, I think. No ETA at the moment. Keep checking back in.

    Since the pole is in a fixed position and the moves are brisk, you could crop it out in post.

    @jarrett towe - The Sony is pretty light weight, it's possible to add more to the top area to adjust the position.

    @Paul - Really hard to disguise a 10' pole in front of a wide lens. LOL. Yeah I could tilt a bit and zoom in to hide it, but i'm not sure why anyone would spin like this anyways.

    feel the same here, pole in the shot no good. I was thinking if you zoom in it would solve that problem. Cool way to get shots really high of the ground though!

    I'm glad you decided not to walk any further at the end, sure look like a stumble was coming on. Nice job.
