K-Tek has a new 6′ boompole that doubles as an extended handgrip.
While most film and television productions have come to a halt, there are still news teams covering stories daily for those at home. Keeping a safe social distance for on-camera interviews during this difficult time can be challenging. The boompole is a logical choice to record usable audio from a distance. K-Tek has introduced a new boompole that doubles an as extended handgrip to offer safer interviews.
- Graphite Carbon Fiber Body
- 2 Sections
- Foam Grip
- 3/8″ Threaded Stud
- 5/8″ Threaded Adapter
The K-Tek Klassic Interview Pole (KIP) is a graphite boompole made from carbon fiber and uses similar quick-release collars found on other Klassic boompoles. It’s lightweight, weighing only 0.6 lbs (285g) and has two sections allowing it to extend from 3′-2.5″ (97.79 cm) to 6′ (1.84 m). While the release and lock collars are not the same as as its higher-end Klassic captive collet collars (and it’s not expected), a simple twist and it’s locked in place.
