ABOUT THE JIMMY JIB
The Jimmy Jib is a cost-effective and versatile camera crane perfect for a wide range of productions whether on location or in the studio, drama, commercial, music promo or live broadcast.
Due to its modular construction, the Jimmy Jib's arm can be built from as short as 6ft to as long as 30ft. It has a payload of up to 27kg so the Jimmy Jib is capable of taking almost any combination of camera and lens, complete with accessories like Cinetape, Teradek etc.
The Jimmy Jib operator has complete control of the jib, simultaneously swinging the arm and controlling the remote pan/tilt head to execute the desired shot.
The Jimmy Jib is an incredibly adaptable camera crane. It's quick to rig, reposition and reconfigure, meaning much greater utilisation during the shoot.
Below is detailed information regarding the various lengths of Jimmy Jib. For more information, please get in touch.
