08Jun Portable Aluminum Mini Telescoping Video Crane Jib


Tweet
Looks like ProCinemaTools.com already has a short video review of that Portable Telescoping Aluminum Mini Jib / Crane posted on this blog a few days ago.

Results in the video look pretty good, and besides not including enough weights to support a Canon 5D Mark III at full extension, it’s seems like a decent jib for [...]

28Oct Zolinger 18ft. Camera Boom Spider Crane


Tweet

Demo video of Zolinger’s new 18ft. Camera Boom Spider Crane. The Spider Crane lists for an almost $1800 dollar price tag (too rich for most), but there’s currently one on auction that looks to have no reserve. Even generic cranes at this length will still run over $800 dollars, so it might be worth watching [...]
