Product Highlights
  • Supports Cameras Up to 50 lbs
  • Extends Over 10 Feet
  • Stainless Steel Fasteners
  • No-tools Assembly

Varicam's QuickJib is an affordable, high-performance jib for cameras weighing up to 50 lbs (22.7kg). This professional, no-tools jib arm assembles safely and quickly, delivering a stable and secure base from which your camera can float and roam. Portable and compact, the QuickJib attaches to a level, secured tripod and can extend to over 10 feet (or nearly 14 feet with an optional extension). The perfect combo of quality and economy, the QuickJib will provide years of reliable operation, whether indoors, outside, or in the studio.

Jib Arm
The QuickJib selectively uses industrial powder coating and anodizing for optimal component performance, with stainless steel fasteners throughout (as opposed to lesser, cheaper zinc-plated fasteners). The slim QuickJib outperforms the competition by having 50% less air resistance in breezy conditions than jibs utilizing a four-arm support system.
Brake System
Brake system utilizes a heavy-duty plate that is securely mounted to the pivot section. Brake compression system is built into a stator and designed to compress firmly and securely, while remaining forgiving enough to slide under extreme force that might otherwise topple a locking-brake jib system.
Locking Pins
Locking stainless aircraft pins of the highest quality and strength are used at the pivot points, and they are attached by lanyard to prevent them from ever being lost.
Tilting Mechanisms
Camera platform and tilt base join to the jib arm with stainless aircraft pins that insert through sealed radial ball bearings at the tilt base and high-performance sleeve bearings at the camera platform, resulting in silent, smooth motion. The camera platform also has a built-in spirit level for quick reference and adjustment. Paired with an optional Zero Gravity head, you have a professional manual overhead jib.
Telescoping Counterweight Section
Telescoping weight arm adjusts up to 3 feet for tremendous flexibility. Extend the arm to reduce the amount of weight needed, shorten it to work in tighter spaces, or simply adjust it to fine-tune the counterbalance.

        I agree with all of the other reviews and ratings. Extremely well made and a bargain at the price. I looked at others and nothing really comes close to the quality build with very well made brake, and boom and super smooth heavy duty pivoting base.

          Once I learned how to assemble the jib it was very fast and easy. It was a little tough at first, just because I have never assembled one. The instructions could use some improvement. For example a clear picture of the completed jib would have been helpful. The jib it self is very smooth and easy to use. Due to the ad I thought the jib came with a tripod. It does not. If you do not have a tripod for a jib be sure to order one.

          I purchased this time "VZQUICKJIB" is superior in cost performance.
          Were tested in ENG CAMERA, but its operation was smooth rigidity is also high
          Unfortunately the only one point because thinner than Japanese standard bar of the weight
          Processing that was necessary
          I'm happy with the other

          Comments about VariZoom VZQUICKJIB QuickJib:

          I did a ton of research before purchasing a jib they all had features I wanted & ones that were a bummer. This jib had all the good ones & one unique feature none of the rest had at all; the brake.
          When you take your hands of the jib it doesn't go slamming into the floor, or if you find yourself wanting to lock it into one height & just use the pivot instead you can.
          Set up is a snap thanks to the tethered push pins (you'll never search for a missing bolt again) it can be ready to use in about two minutes (seriously it's that easy). The ball bearings inset in the pivot make raising or lowering butter smooth, panning is just as sweet. There is a hole in the handle just above the weight bar I added a 3/8x 3 inch bolt to attach my monitor so follow shots are a breeze.
          I purchased the MC100 pan & tilt motorized head also which is another WOW the shots are incredible.
          Excellent quality, sturdy build, assembles quickly, includes bag, amazing price. I simply couldn't be happier.
          Add a couple of velcro straps for cable routing & you are golden.
