The Polaris is the world's first electric tripod head with an integrated camera interface controller. The Polaris Astro Edition not only allows you to adjust the composition of a photo, but also enables you to program the intelligent head to capture a series of photographs, easily track and take long exposures of stars, or create high-resolution motion timelapses. Moreover, the Polaris offers a wireless connection that allows you to do all the above remotely, as well as preview, review, and download files via a dedicated app from almost anywhere.

The Polaris comes with built-in modes such as People Remover, Panorama, Motion Timelapse, Dynamic Exposure Timelapse, Focus Stacking, and Star Tracking. These modes work with a wide variety of cameras. In addition, the Polaris also has a redundant onboard and swappable microSD card slot that ensures no images are lost from a shoot. It also enables Polaris to do some rapid editing for you while in the field. Polaris can render Pathlapses, Panoramas, etc., and quickly display previously captured images on your phone.

To keep up with demanding use, the Polaris is manufactured from aluminum alloy and stainless steel, designed to work in the harshest of environments. Thanks to its high-quality build, Polaris has an IPX6 water-resistant rating, which allows the head to work even in torrential downpours. Despite its robust build quality, Polaris weighs only 1.1kg (2.5lbs), and the Astro module only adds .4kg (.8lbs), making it a very capable every day or travel tripod head. Even with its low weight, Polaris can support camera rigs up to 7kg (15lbs).

With a battery life of over 24 hours and the ability to charge during use, the Polaris can shoot all day and then keep going. Whether you're an amateur photographer or a professional, the Polaris is a great tool to have in your kit.
