I can’t think of a better name for a person who build pole cameras than Polster. And fortunately for Jim, that is his last name. In addition to being the proprietor of Longshot Camera Systems, Jim is also a broad spectrum maker. Check out his latest build. It’s a 1960 Grundig am/fm shortwave hi-fi console repurposed into a sink. Jim also sent me a link to a short piece about his latest product, the Pole-ster (get it?) which is a “telescoping pole that reaches 20 feet up with your camera at the top on a highly adjustable mount.”
