Pole Mount Adapter - Interesting

I just purchased a pole adapter from polepixie.com and I've got to say it is an interesting accessory to have for $29.95 USD.

It mounts on a painters pole or broom handle. It lets you hoist you camera high overhead for a completely different point of view.

I used just a 5 foot shop-broom handle and had the camera up maybe 12 feet. I used a Nikon D300 with a MC-30 wired cable release. To go any higher you would need to use a self timer, intervalometer, or radio controlled release.

I bought the cheaper plastic adapter. They make an aluminum model for $10 more as well as a quick release head and foam padded resting plate.

Here are a couple of quick snaps from high about my house and one of me and the adapter and pole.
