The Pole @ The Olympics!

February 11, 2014

Last Friday during the 2014 Olympic opening ceremonies we were very surprised and excited to see The Pole being carried out by the Canadian (our home town) Olympic Team!  The slopestyle coach, Toben Sutherland, was  shown proudly walking out with the rest of the team carrying The Pole and with no doubt getting some really wicked shots! 

Introducing The Shuttr

January 29, 2014

The Shuttr is a remote control for your smartphone’s camera, which will put an end to awkward selfies and tracking down random strangers to take group shots.

The Shuttr pairs with your phone’s Bluetooth in seconds and there’s no need to download a third-party camera app since the Shuttr is compatible with the native camera app of all iOS and most Android phones.

Take great selfies, group photos and videos from as far as 30 feet. Use the included audio jack phone stand to position your phone in a freestanding position. Never be left out of a photo again!

The Shuttr is small enough to use as a key chain and has a battery life of up to 2 years, which means it will always be camera-ready, wherever you are.

Whistler.com Gift Idea

December 20, 2013

Whistler.com featured The Pole in their local Christmas Gift Ideas post!

 

 - Teenagers can be a finicky lot but one thing we know about the youth of today is they love to take pictures of themselves. In a world of “selfies” and “sick-gnar Point-of-view edits” no gift will stoke the teen ripper on your list like THE POLE. It’s a lightweight telescopic pole that fits in a pocket or stretches out to 72 cm(28”) to ensure your kid’s POV cam is at the perfect distance to get the shot. Montreal designers Platinum Distribution, in a stroke of genius, also placed a little fisheye mirror at the base of the camera mount so riders can see what the camera sees and make sure all their radness is in the frame.
