All our jimmy jibs are SOLO-OPERATED. This means that the operator moves both the arm of the crane , as well as the camera itself.
Thus, the movement of the arm, the movement of the hot-head, the zoom and the focus (in most cases) are in the hands of the operator.
For technically difficult shots in EFP environment and with ’large sensor cameras’, we work with an assistant focus-puller.
Our jimmy-jibs come in a standard length of max 7.3 meters. Smaller is always possible (and sometimes better), but bigger is also possible. The option “extreme” goes as far as 9m in height end lenght.
For detailed info, please check the overview on the different lengths and necessary work surfaces.
With a jimmy-jib installed on our GATOR, just go where you want to go. Tuff terrain, many displacements, no problem with our GATOR – JIB.
Which cameras can we mount on our jimmy-jibs? Well, actually just about anything you can think of:
Multicam: Any LDK or Sony camera (we prefer Canon broadcast lenses)
CINE: RED Epic / Scarlet / one – ARRI alexa – Canon C-x00 – …
We have special cine zoom- and focus motors.
