Railblaza Pro Series camera booms

Railblaza Camera Boom 150

Anyone following my ramblings over the past few years has probably witnessed my numerous experiments on kayak camera mounting methods, noting that the experiments pretty much drew to a close when I started using the Railblaza 150 and 600mm camera booms. I demonstrated these booms and the methods of which I mounted them in the 'Bird of Prey' video I recently shared. 

Not only do they provide the respective heights I was looking for to achieve the most optimal shooting perspectives from front, side and rear, they were also the most solid solutions I could find. This has always been important to me because the more rigid the mount, the less camera wobble would occur and thus better footage would result. In short, these booms have worked out so well that I simply haven't had cause to look any further... until Railblaza themselves drew my attention to their new Pro series camera booms.

Much like their original booms the new ones utilize the starport mounting system and the lengths have not changed. What has changed is that they are now a little lighter and now feature an extra (5th) axis from which to pivot the mount platform. On top of this the mounting platforms are now detachable, meaning cameras can easily be removed and switched to different booms or telepoles. This video demonstrates their functionality beautifully:

So while they retain the qualities that I liked so much in the original booms the new Pro series add versatility that a guy like myself just cannot ignore. I'll be showing the results of these new booms from our upcoming trip to Fraser Island. My older booms are too good to shove away to collect dust, however, so these have been donated to Carl who will put them to good use on the very same trip.

DB: Hi guys, long time no see
DB: catch up later
Josh: heya DB, how goes it?
Carl: hey Db's back...did you get parole or early release for good behaviour?
DB: Hey guys. Haven't been able to access the site for ages for some bizarre reason. Just re registered with a different email.
We just had our local exchange out of order too and no phone but that seems ok now.
Haven't done much fishing of late but I am a member of a local fish stocking group which stocks two small dams locally.
Planning on getting off shore again soon but I am fatter than ever an more unfit so I'll be taking it easy and sticking close to shore. Chat soon :D
DB: Morning Carl.
XDCAMMER: Hey DB, good to see ya still alive,. I was talking to Tas yesterday (Fri) and he said to pass on his best to all you guys. He has bought a PA 12 and is fitting it out. All the best mate, power walking is a good slimmer. WHATS WITH BALLS? Cheers to Kate. xD .
XDCAMMER: Imagine what would happen to an AI mast if it were hit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCRguPMjXLw&feature=player_embedded Lucky boys. I hate lightening.
DB: Anyone home?
DB: Later folks. :D
Guest_3610: Salmon fishing from the yak in WA....video
Jenkins: Hi Josh
Jenkins: what size rods do you use on your adventure
Josh: Jenkins, I have 6 rods, all of them Nitro. 2 x Godzilla for trolling, Viper for jigging, just got a Magnum Butt Distance Spin for casting lures into frenzied fish. Voodoo for plastics for small to medium species and a ultra bream for finesse fishing/squid, etc. Taking a Godzila, Viper and Magnum But to Fraser Isl next month
Jenkins: Thanks Josh
Josh: You're welcome
XDCAMMER: If I get asked for another "Hobie canoe" I'm going to SCREAM!
Jenkins: This might sound like a dumb question but what would you consider and moderate wind speed to go fishing and what size swell?
Carl: i think 8 - 12 knots is a good wind speed for trolling on an AI...i don't get swell too much here only get chop from wind up to 1.5 m when i get wind v current...washing machine conditions...
Guest_9733: With regards to swell, it depends very much on wind conditions at the time, and whether or not there are white caps. Trolling at wind speeds Carl suggested is great for pelagics, slower for reef fish is usually a bit better
Jenkins: Thanks for that, cheers.
XDCAMMER: I wouldn't be eating that cod. I wonder if Rapala will bring out a new shaped CD Mag, not sure where you'd put the hooks tho.
