Designed by Ambient Recording, the Feature-Film Boom Pole is suitable for recording audio in the context of film, particularly in multi-cam shots, wide-camera angles, complicated lighting scenarios, and any scene involving complicated interactions between actors and cameras. The boom itself is fashioned out of multi-layer pull-wind carbon tubing with a wall thickness of 1.55 mm, giving you a stiff and well-balanced pole. This allows you to pivot, swing, and aim a microphone in a controlled manner. At the tip of the boom is a stainless steel 3/8" thread for attachment to shockmounts. Screw locks provide greater security.
"The boom pole is the most important tool for a boom operator. In the hands, it should be an extension of the body, enabling precise and intuitive work.“ Designing the perfect boom with perfect characteristics requires a compromise of sometimes opposing demands.
The heart of a boom pole is the tube. A perfect boom pole tube has to be lightweight and rigid, to minimize bending and to maximize control of microphone position while fully extended. At the same time they should be resilient enough to avoid breaking when swinging the boom. The surface should be smooth for easy action and to prevent handling noise, but with a matte finish so as not to cause reflections.
The only material that possesses the characteristics to satisfy all these demands is carbon fiber. The manufacturing process of carbon fiber tube allows us to specify its composition. With parameters such as fiber-type, fiber-arrangement, wall-thickness, tube diameter and manufacturing method, we gain the possibility to create something completely unique and specialized to satisfy your requirements. Ambient offers four unique lines of boom poles to address the huge variety of needs of today’s field sound professionals.
