    We forgot a part for our system and we were traveling for a tournament. The high rise camera rep help us find a store near our game that had the part and we were able to purchase it and all was good. That type of service is not something you find very often these days. Our system is good and highly recommend.

    At my previous school we had a 250 pound tower that was pretty massive. So when this first arrived, I have to admit that I thought looked a little wimpy and wouldn’t be as good compared to it. I was wrong. This thing has been great for us. The construction on it is tough. Even better it travels great too. Now we can get our shots for home and away games. Highly recommend.

    Previously, we had a much more expensive end zone camera that had issues and we could not upgrade it. Did some research and purchased the Sky 200. It has a quick set up and easy to use for our volunteer filmers. The video quality of the film is clear and thats important to me. Feedback that I have received from filmers is: easy to follow instructions….video camera battery keeps camera going for many sessions…very well made….easy to travel with.

    The only change feedback they had was for the hard carrying case. If it were a little smaller, it could travel easier.

    All in all, nothing but good things to say.

    It’s always a good thing when you purchase a product from a company with customer service that is top notch. Not only was Brandon (our rep) there to answer questions he also did follow ups to ensure we were good to go. Add this with being knowledgeable about the product and technology, it has been a very positive experience. Great product with great customer service.

    Iihave used a few of the different camera towers. i like it better than the hipod but not as much as the sport scope. for the price it is a good deal.

    :

    I film the games for the team and this tower is definitely much better than our last one. In the same breathe, I will say that I also got to work a similar type of endzone cam for a college program and that one was the best I have ever used…..they also paid about $7k for it. For this one though, it is a steal for the price. I like almost everything about it. The only thing that I don’t like is the hard carrying case. It is a bit big. The set up time is pretty quick.

    The feet with the weights are heavier than 5 pounds…..closer to 7 or 8 pounds each. Makes a difference when travelin

    It’s great! Well worth the money. I was a little skeptical at first because of the price. But then read the reviews and figured we would give it shot. Easy to use and get us the film we need.

    As far as endzone cameras go, I wish it was heavier.

  53. 5 out of 5
    5 out of 5

    :

    For our team, the portability of this unit was a key factor for our purchase. We need to record on the road. I have a 4 door car and I can let the back seat down and the entire unit fits in the trunk. Just what we needed to record home and away games.

  54. 4 out of 5
    4 out of 5

    :

    My only knock on this system is the size of the viewing monitor. It is 7 inches. It would be great if it were larger…..say 10-12 inches. Our filming parent thinks its just fine as it is, but that would be my only suggestion. Other than that this unit is solid.

    :

    The monitor was broken when the unit arrived….the day before my game. Called the company and they would not over night a new monitor. They would only send it ground shipping. We missed recording that game. Not happy.

  58. 4 out of 5
    4 out of 5

    :

    My only suggestion is to make the camera shield waterproof and make the camera enclosed in the shield. Other than that, every thing else is just as advertised. Easy set up, light enough to travel. It’s surprisingly strong and durable.

    :

    The customer service is top notch. We had a new volunteer setting up the tower and he ran into an issue during the game. He called the support number on a Friday night and spoke with a tech support rep that helped him fix the issue immediately. I have also spoken with a rep with a tech question and she was great.

    :

    We set up the tower for the first time right when we received it. Admittedly, the kid filming forgot to attach the HDMI clamp to the stress relief area on the shield and the end of the cable broke. We called Hi Rise and they advised us that the damage was not under warranty.

  70. 5 out of 5

    Really good video quality. I like the ability to stake the tripod into the ground.

  71. 4 out of 5
    4 out of 5

    :

    Weighted tripod feet are VERY heavy….probably 10 pounds each. So it adds more weight to the base. If you don’t need them, remove them from the bag. I just lugged the entire unit to the game and back….it’s heavy. If you use the lighter feet, it is sooooo much lighter.

  72. 5 out of 5
    5 out of 5

    :

    The product is solid. I wanted to leave a quick note about the customer support. We had an issue with not being able to see the video on our streaming device and monitor. So we called customer support for their help. The rep stayed on the phone with us to resolve the issue (which was the streaming device, not the monitor by the way) and was doing internet searches to see what information was available on the streaming device since we were at the field and did not have access to the web. Then the next day, he called to make sure all was good. You don’t get support like that with many products any more. very helpful.

  73. 4 out of 5

    :

    Would have given it 5 stars, but ran into a small issue. When the camera arrived, the box and a part was damaged. It took the company a few days to get us a new part……instead of shipping it overnight. That is my only complaint. Other than that, all is good now. I just think they should have sent the part overnight to us.

    :

    This is what we were hoping it would be. I was a bit skeptical at first because of the pricing. Other units we were considering buying were 2-3 times more expensive. But let me tell you, the quality is great. This is our first endzone camera and it is a game changer.

    :

    Had my unit for a few weeks now. Overall, it is good. It is sturdy and made with good quality parts. It is also simple to set up. But, there are a few things that I would like to see different. If the backpack was a bit bigger, that would be very useful to allow me pack other items that I need for the game. They only provide you with an 8GB micro sd card for recording. You can purchase a larger size micro sd card to record more footage….I would have liked to receive a larger micro sd card with my purchase. The cards are inexpensive, but again, it would have been more convenient to have it with my purchase.

  79. 5 out of 5

    :

    The customer support has been great. The instruction manual is very easy to follow. The video quality has been great even in windy conditions. With our previous unit we would see swaying in the video. We have not seen any swaying with the video filmed with our unit.

    My team parent was at the field and had a problem getting the unit up. It was a Saturday evening game. They called customer support and was able to get the issue resolved and recorded the entire game (found out it was operator error). The video from this game was critical for us to have. I wanted to give a quick thank you to the Hi Rise rep for helping us resolve our issue…..also with it being a saturday evening.

    I like just about everything with this camera rig. My only suggestion is creating an option for coaches to add another camera at the top of the unit. This will allow two different views for my coaches.

    Recently purchased this tower and it has benefited us greatly. Easy to follow instructions and set up is pretty quick. Our volunteers that film say that it is much easier to use than our last unit. The video quality is of this camera is very good.

    I have used a few camera towers in my day. This is by far, the easiest and best quality for the price. It’s affordable and user friendly. When asked, I have recommended it to other programs in our area.

    The product is good. My only issue is that I am unable to figure out how to get the full game in one video file instead of it being broken up into 3 or 4 clips. I have reached out to customer support for more information. Once this item is resolved, I will come back and change the review to 5 stars.

    Works like a charm. Video quality is great and it’s not too big and bulky so it travels well too.

    I would prefer a canon camera. Canon’s are much better quality compared to Sony. Just my 2 cents.

    I volunteer with our program to help film the games. We had an issue in the evening with the set up of the unit. I called the company friday night and I actually was able to speak with a customer service rep that helped us resolve the issue. This day and age, it is not very common to receive this type of support. We were able to record our game and all was well. I really appreciate the Hi Rise team for going the extra mile and providing great customer service.

    I like the strength and durability of this product. With our last endzone camera, it was not made well. In addition to the good quality, this product was very affordable (and much less than our previous camera. I recommend it.

    Set it up in really windy conditions last week. The winds were probably 30 mph. Unit was staked in the ground and was solid as rock. On the video, you couldn’t even tell that we were filming in wind.

    The video camera, Sony 405 cuts your video into shorter clips automatically. Not a fan of this. For sports like basketball, it is a bit frustrating. Other sports at our school don’t find this as an issue, but I am not a fan of it. Everything else is simple.

    Overall, this tower has been good. I like the portability of the system. I wish the battery charger had more clear instructions on how to use it while charging it in your car. I figured it out, but it would have saved me time with better instructions.

  118. 4 out of 5
    4 out of 5

    :

    The only thing that I don’t like is the fact that the sony camera automatically divides the video into 2GB segments. It’s not a big deal because we can easily merge them back together. Just a little inconvenient. To get 5 stars, this needs to be an option that can be chosen by the customer for full video or segments.

    The only thing that we had an issue with was the electronic cable blew around when it was windy. Got a few velcro straps and problem solved. Called customer support and it looks like they did not include the velcro straps by mistake with our order. They are sending it to us at no additional cost. Other than that, the unit is good.

    Just received our unit and used it last week. Easy to set up and got compliments on the look of it. The only thing that went wrong was the micro sd card was full really quick. However, I think that may be an error on our end with the setting. Overall, very impressed thus far

    We use our unit to travel to tournaments and we have been pleasantly surprised. When we first saw it online I was skeptical because of the price…..but once it arrived, I could immediately tell this was a high quality product. Is it a 5 minute set up like our other system….No. But it was approx $2k compared to $5k. Plan on spending about 15 minutes to set it up. It is a good find.

    If the base was heavier, it would be better. I don’t always have time to anchor it to the ground and not always with weights for the bags.

    Ok, here we go. I am the team manager of a team that purchased the unit. We purchased the 2016 model last year. Honestly, if I reviewed it at that time, I would have given it 3 stars, but now I give it 5 stars. Keep reading below and you will see why. With the original unit we purchased in 2016…..I personally didn’t like that pole and how it functioned. I also didn’t like the way that the remote control worked either. Then, our team decided to upgrade the pole and the remote control. It made a HUGE difference for the BETTER. We have upgraded our unit so that we now have the Sky 200GC unit that is imaged above. It is a great unit and perfect balance of being lightweight to travel and also very durable. The set up time is much quicker that it was previously. We also got the new tripod and it sets up in seconds (much better than the previous tripod). I highly recommend.

    We use it for all of sports teams. It is light and can travel. The camera shoots GREAT quality. My basketball coach mentioned that the camera has a mode that creates segmented clips automatically, so make sure you are filming in the correct mode.

    We’ve had a good experience with it. For the price, it is a great value. It does take a little bit longer to set up than my other end zone camera (my other camera took 5 minutes to set up, but it was $5k). For the cost savings, it is worth the trade off.

    The only complaint is that Sony camera automatically segments video every 3 or 4GB into individual files. For our soccer games, that means the game may be in 3 segments. You can merge into 1 file with the Sony computer software that is free, but it is just an extra step that I don’t want to have to do.

    I am the parent volunteer that films the games. After I learned how to set up the system and took it down a few times, I got the flow down. Then, we had a game when it rained. The unit does not come with rain protective gear. Our coach called the company and they advised that their rain gear will come out this Spring, but it is not available yet. So we don’t film in rainy weather…..which is not good for us. Once they offer rain gear, I’ll give them a better rating.

    We had a few issues at first when we received our unit. Our sales rep took complete care of us and got all issues resolved asap. Great customer service! Then, we used the unit for the first time. Let me tell you the quality of the parts are awesome. For the price, we were prepared to get a unit that was a bit lower…..but this stuff is heavy duty! Now, the only downside is that it takes about 15 minutes to set up. It is easy to do. Once you set up the base, it is straightforward.

    When I first was shopping for a camera for our program, the price of the product caught my eye. Since it was thousands of dollars less than the other cameras I had looked at, I was very skeptical to say the least. After talking to the sales rep (and a few references), I went ahead and bought it. Man, let me tell you this thing has been great for us. High quality product and great customer support. I’ve even referred other coaches I know.

    The product is just what I was hoping it would be and is absolutely perfect for our low budget community college athletics program. I am able to use this camera system to live stream our games online, save it for game film, and then use the film as a way to make recruiting videos for our athletes to get recruited by 4-year schools.
    For any athletics department without a press box, this camera is a must-buy.
