Boombandit - Boombandit

Product Design - Consumer


Design and manufacture a camera crane for smartphones and lightweight video cameras. The Boombandit allows videographers to get crane shots into their video production cheaply and easily. Made from telescopic aluminium legs and injection molded parts the Boombandit is based on a parallelogram, like traditional camera cranes, but it utilises the parallelogram like no other camera crane in that the vertical members are not locked in position, they are allowed to tilt, therefore allowing the camera to tilt up and down whilst the arms are being raised and lowered. No other camera crane does this.
