Camera Crane Service

Our customized ABC crane is lightweight, easy to build, and versatile for various set changes.
Here's an example of a music video shot with our jib last year in Bevagna and Assisi: we moved easily through the downtown area with ABC.

For lightweight cameras, I typically use a ABC crane with a 2-axis remote head for quicker setup and better handling in different set configurations. I can bring an FS5 camera with an external Atomos recorder or FS7. The crane crew is usually managed by two people.

Expert Jimmy Jib Triangle Stanton Camera Support System

The Stanton Triangle Jimmy Jib 2 or 3-axis camera support system is precision-engineered and expertly manufactured by Jimmy Stanton from Arizona, U.S.A. This triangle extruded system allows 36-inch modular sections to be joined up to 30ft in length from the pivot section with a 50 lb camera payload. The Stanton Triangle Jimmy Jib is versatile in both size and application, supporting 100lbs from 6ft to 18ft, making it the best option for a lightweight jib arm that can be mounted on its own three-wheeled base, heavy-duty tripod, or any Mitchell mount with or without the arm of the dollies. This system is less expensive and can be controlled with a joystick or hand wheeled, making it useful for long moving shots on a low budget. Common uses include music videos, sports, documentaries, and reality TV shows.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Jib?
In cinematography, a jib is a boom device with a camera on one end and a counterweight and camera controls at the other. It operates like a see-saw with a fulcrum in the center. A jib is useful for capturing high shots or shots that need to cover great distances, horizontally or vertically, without the expense and safety issues of putting a camera operator on a crane. The camera is controlled by a cabled remote control at one end and, at the other, a super-responsive electromechanic pan/tilt head (hot head) - allowing for smooth pans and tilts.

What is a Jimmy Jib?
The Jimmy Jib is a lightweight, modular camera crane system constructed out of triangular aluminum tubing. It has a relatively small pack-down size, allowing for easy transportation and setup in almost any location. Depending on the terrain, the Jimmy Jib can be easily repositioned between shots, wheeled quickly on smooth terrain, or moved to another setup point with provided time and care for rougher surfaces.

How high can the camera go?
Our Jib configurations can raise a camera to a lens height anywhere from 1.8 meters (6 feet) to 9 meters (30 feet). Depending on configuration requirements, it can support a camera up to the weight of 22.5 kilograms. This means any type of camera, including 4k or broadcast/video. See the diagram below for specifics.

The strength of the Jimmy Jib lies in the "reach" of the crane arm, which becomes the crucial factor in creating interesting and dynamic compositions, allowing the operator to raise the camera above obscuring power lines or animated concertgoers for clear, high wide shots if needed.

How low can it go?
With the "Triangle" Jimmy Jib set up in an "under-slung" configuration, the camera can be made to rest almost directly off the floor, making the minimum lens height about 20 centimeters (8 inches). Of course, if you're willing to dig a hole, cut away a section of the set, or shoot on a platform, this minimal lens height can be reduced.

How does the remote head work?
The remote head (or hot head) is operated with a joystick control panel. The controls are connected with a cable to the head, which contains finely controlled electrical servo motors and gears. These are configured to allow the operator to pan, tilt, and, with an additional "slip ring," roll. This hothead is silent, allowing for effective operation in sound-sensitive production environments.
How many people does it take to operate the Jimmy Jib?
Usually, two operators are required for the operation of the jib. One person "swings" (moves) the actual counterbalanced boom arm, while another operates the hot head. We supply all the operators/technicians required for the operation of the Jimmy Jib.
How long does it take to set up a Jimmy Jib?
We will always ask you to allow one hour for a jib to be set up on a flat surfaced area, yet the jib is usually ready for operation in forty-five minutes. If the location is more hazardous, more time is required. It also takes around ten minutes to fit and balance the camera on the hothead.

Remote Lens Control
If a Focus Puller is required to operate the lens control for focus/zoom/iris, you will need to check with them if they prefer a wireless or hard-wired control unit. For the hard-wired option, a 10-meter (30 feet) cable is the minimum requirement, as well as a video tap for the camera.

Can your jib really take a RED or Sony F5?
The great advantage of cameras such as the Red and F55 is that they are modular, meaning they can be built up or down to suit different situations. This means we can accommodate these cameras on our jib, if configured to be within the maximum weight limit. Our Jib has a 4-pin XLR power line, which means heavy batteries are not needed.

Jimmy jib Italy service

Which camera/lens do you recommend for use on your jib?
Ideally, a broadcast camera, such as the PMW-800, paired with a super-wide HD lens, is a great combination for use on the jib.

Jimmy jib operator

Can't I just rent a mini Jib?
If you're looking to use a camera bigger than a DSLR Canon 5D, our Jimmy Jib is a good option.

How will focus and iris functions be controlled on cameras such as the RED & Sony F55?
Generally, the DP on the shoot will arrange a focus puller and remote focus kit.

Do you have a list of cameras your jib can support?
There are a fair few cameras, from DSLRs, broadcast cameras to Digital Cinema Cameras, that our Jimmy Jib can support. Please email us if you'd like to check if yours is supported. Our jib is best suited to broadcast cameras, where full iris, focus, and zoom control can be achieved with Fujinon & Canon lenses.
