The legendary Frankencam is currently on display at the National Media Museum in Bradford. Selected as an innovative piece of wildlife filming equipment, “Frank” is part of the Nature Camera Action! exhibit for the next couple of months.
Frank was created to enable us to film small creatures up close with a three-axis control system. That means we could film life in ways never before seen, following insects a hairsbreadth from the ground or manoeuvring the camera in and around the undergrowth all with highly precise and vibration-free movement.
Watch Martin explain what Frank is and how it works in this video on National Geographic.
“Nature Camera Action! – The Secrets of Making Incredible Wildlife Films” is on from 18 July – 12 October 2014 at the National Media Museum, Bradford.
