ABC Products' Launches New Lightweight Multi-purpose Jib

ABC Products have launched a new DSLR Light-Jib - a very lightweight and compact Jib-arm designed for DSLR cameras and small camcorders.
Represented by Ianiro UK, the Light-Jib is available from resellers from mid-February.
The DSLR HD revolution has seen a deluge of new grip and support products aimed at improving the ergonomics of stills cameras for video use. But many of these accessories are limited to stills cameras, offering little beyond their specific function.
Camera operators that shoot using a number of different small camera formats will find the new jib from ABC Products to be highly adaptable. Importantly, the ABC Product Light-Jib can carry cameras and accessories, weighing up to 4.5kg making it equally well suited to compact DSLRs and camcorders, such as the Canon xf105 & XF305, Panasonic HMC-151 & HMC-41 or the Sony XDCAM range.
Its low weight (3.9kg) and strength are down to carbon fibre tubes. The jib packs small for portability in three parts and offers an extremely short assembly time of less than a minute. It is also fast and flexible in use thanks to its QuickPin system that allows a rapid change of location and camera angle. Its boom length is 1.52m.
In use, it has a parallelogram bar that can be continuously changed allowing for automatic tilt as well as precise adjustment of the tilt head angle. It also has a special swivel system that enables the jib to move smoothly throughout its range.
Nick Allen-Miles, MD of distributor Ianiro UK, said: "The Light-Jib is a highly adaptable piece of equipment. It's a great multi-purpose tool. It's flexible for use with DSLRs and camcorders, fast enough to be set-up without missing a shot and light enough to transport anywhere."
The kit includes a built-in level, quick release and built-in brakes (horizontal and vertical).
