Porta-Jib Traveller

People associate jib arms with big sweeping down from the sky shots, but in fact the majority of jib shots are small subtle moves.

The Losmandy Porta-Jib Traveller brings a variety of camera moves to your shoot without breaking the budget. Its unique telescopic design allows it to work in constricted areas and also unfold to create a dramatic 6-foot lift.

Unlike inexpensive consumer jibs that bounce on both ends of the move, the Porta-Jib is a professional piece of kit that delivers smooth starts and solid stops. I often use it mounted on a Vinten dolly for easy repositioning.

The under-slung fluid head allows front jib operation as the camera floats effortlessly through the air. It also lets the camera be moved all the way to the ground, which isn’t achievable with traditional top-slung heads.

 

Fitting into a small tripod bag, the Porta-Jib is extremely compact and takes just ten minutes to set-up.
