Drones may be the soup du jour of filming in 2017, but cable cams should never be discounted for their utility and reliability. The problem is they were traditionally too expensive and difficult to operate for your average amateur videographer but that has all changed with this new kickstarter project which has blown past its original funding goal of $30,000 with a whooping $200,000 pledged with 29 days to go.
