Camera on a wire

8 months 1 week ago #658596 by Sharna Lee
I was talking with a rep with Adorama last week about wanting to get higher up shots, but didn't want to get a drone.  The rep was talking about getting my camera on a wire :huh: or something like that.  Honestly, the started going on about something and completely lost me.  

If you wanted to get high up shots and video footage and didn't want to get a drone.  What would you use?  

Please tell me putting my camera on a wire wasn't a seriously option as Google didn't help much with that search term.  

Thanks!

Why so serious?

Are you talking about a cable cam?  Wiral and Syrp make one.

Realistically though, it looks like the Syrp one is the only one that can carry a DSLR with lens.

Nope, that other one will carry small mirrorless cameras.

Cable cam?  

That's what I've always heard it called.
