The Cinekinetic portable jib arm fits on a standard tripod and is similar in size to a Porta Jib. However, it sets up faster (in about five minutes) and can achieve balance more easily. It accommodates any size camera from mini DV to Betacam to HD cameras. The jib provides dynamic shots of otherwise static scenes and unique perspectives when combined with a wide angle lens. It provides both crane and dolly type moves. The jib is great tool for shooting b-roll and for scenes that are normally static in nature such as office scenes, manufacturing machinery and assembly lines, product shots, interiors and exteriors of buildings, etc. The jib can be used for practically any scene that benefits from camera movement. In addition, the camera can be under-slung with a special accessory to allow for shots right at ground level.
