About Jimmy Jib
Jimmy Jib Triangle — uses triangular aluminum tubing for superior strength & rigidity. It is Simpler, Lighter & Packages Better. The inset controlling cable (includes three coaxial-cable, video cable and assistant cable) strengthen the reliability and stability of operation. The Jib arm is segmently designed that makes it easy to install and transport. Full function single-arm double-axis remote head applies quiet drive motors, which are smooth, fast, quiet & have no backlash
What is a Jib?
In cinematography, a jib is a boom device with a camera on one end and a counterweight and camera controls at the other. It operates like a see-saw with a fulcrum in the center. A jib is useful for getting high shots, or shots that need to move a great distance; horizontally or vertically, without the expense and safety issues of putting a camera operator on a crane. The camera is controlled by a cabled remote control at one end, and at the other a super-responsive electro mechanic pan/tilt head (hot head) – allowing for smooth pans and tilts.
What is a Jimmy Jib?
The Jimmy Jib is a lightweight, modular camera crane system constructed out of triangular aluminum tubing. It has a relatively small pack-down size which allows for easy transportation and setup almost any location. Depending on the terrain of the location, the Jimmy Jib can be easily repositioned between shots, wheeled easily and quickly on smooth terrain or with provided time and care moved happily to another set-up point for rougher surfaces.
How high can the camera go?
Our Jib configurations can allow us to raise a camera to a lens height anywhere from 1.8 meters (6 feet) to 15 meters (46 feet), and depending on configuration requirements can support a camera up to the weight of 22.5 kilograms. This means any sort of camera, whether it be 16mm, 35mm or broadcast/video.
