Right now, they’re rented in LA, NY, Chicago and Detroit. Why electric? Herb explained, “Nothing else has the torque. You can go from 0 to 40 faster than anything else. And they’re totally quiet.”

The Shadow Tracker is a 4-wheel drive electric camera platform for camera tracking shots or quick camera setups. Steadicam, jib arms or medium telescopic cranes like the Technocrane 15 mount to on-board posts. Shadow Tracker is as at home on New York pavement as on the dunes at Pismo Beach, California.
