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 or commercial, music promo or entertainment.

Due to its modular construction, the jib's arm can be built from as short as 6ft to as long as 30ft.  And with a payload of up to 27kg, the Jimmy Jib is capable of taking most combinations of camera and lens.  

The Jimmy Jib operator has complete control of the jib - simultaneously swinging the arm and controlling the pan/tilt head to execute the shot.  When working with 2/3" cameras the operator will also have control of the zoom and focus.


From slow, controlled moves on a drama to a fast-paced music video, the Jimmy Jib is an incredibly adaptable camera crane.  And it's super quick to rig, reposition and reconfigure, meaning much greater utilisation during the shoot.
