Measuring just 82cm for transit, and weighing just 2kg, this jib is perfect for people on the go. It's ideal for both DSLRs and all handheld camcorders under 3kg, or could be used with action cameras such as the GoPro for an even more lightweight set-up. The Mini Jib is fastened directly to the video head of any sturdy tripod, in the same way you would attach your camera. It can be mounted using both 1/4'' and 3/8'' screws.
On the end of the jib is a camera plate mounted on a pulley with a control cable coming down the jib to a second pulley at the side of the video head on the tripod. It is this control cable that keeps the camera level as the jib is raised or lowered. Tilting the tripod's video head controls the camera pulley on the end of the jib, enabling the camera to be tilted up or down. The radial ball bearings in the pulley ensure a very smooth tilt movement. The jib has a telescopic weight bar which can be adjusted to counterbalance the camera with standard bar weights or a sandbag used for counterbalance.
An additional feature of the Mini Jib is the ability to mount the jib horizontally so you can create sideways tracking movement, similar to a slider, or the camera can be positioned to move forward or back. Combine this with using the pan bar on the video head and some very unusual shots can be achieved.
