Camera column thing - please HELP
I saw a camera column/pedestal device online once. It had a column that was on a wheeled base and you could mount a camera to the side of the column. The column had pulleys inside it and you could move the camera vertically up and down the side of the column. Very neat device. I don't think it was made by one of the major tripod companies- I think it was just made by a frustrated production guy who then started selling them online. They had a demo video that was made in a lamp/lighting/furniture store.

Does anybody know what this camera column/pedestal thing is and where I could find it?

That's not it.

This piece of gear was designed for video use and was made to smoothly elevate and lower a camera during a shot. The center column was a lot thicker because I think it had pulleys and stuff inside.
