I was at Guadalupe Is. off the west coast of Mexico a couple years ago cage diving with great whites. Some of the crew were using a pole cam, but why would you want to do this when you can get into the water (in cages) with them? I thought that Abernethy's trips were open diving, rather than in cages or needing a pole cam.

Abernethy's is open diving , we use pole cam to shoot half and half images of the lemon sharks (attracting them with a little sardine hanging from a fishing rod)

A bit of a long way out for just polecam shots, but the silky sharks that hang around liveaboards in the Galapagos are good for polecams.
