Electric Golf Buggy AKA 'Mr Big' Tracking Vehicle


Golf Buggy Mr Big is a narrow wheel base, two wheel wheel drive Golf Kart that can carry a wide range of cameras and grip equipment. It complies with all current safety requirements for indoor and outdoor arenas, stadiums and Film/TV studios. Mr Big is an ideal tracking vehicle for urban environments such as city parks, shopping precincts or airports, wherever you need a safe, clean, whisper quiet mobile camera platform. 'Mr Big' can carry up to four people (subject to people and equipment payload) + camera packages from conventional film & digital cameras to large 3D rigs all compatible with our Remote Heads, Jib Arms, Fluid Heads and Vibration Isolators.




We expect that Mr Big will be a popular choice for productions who need tracking shots where narrow access is a necessity (for example pavements, walkways and corridors). Not convinced? Then you can arrange a demonstration at our UK head office. We're more than happy to show people what we're up to and how our equipment can benefit your production, in ways you may not have thought of.

Live broadcast and events coverage can also benefit from Mr Big's capacity for creating moving shots with little or no intruding sound.

Mr Big is a unique addition to the Chapman UK camera tracking vehicle fleet and popular with all kinds of productions, because it features:

  • Narrow wheel base making it perfect for tracking shots on pavements or indoor tracking shots along corridors.
