The Genustech Mini Jib is a compact jib that allows smooth movement for cameras up to 9.4 lb. Lightweight at 3.5 lb, the Mini Jib arm collapses to 33" and can extend up to nearly 6'. The jib will require a strong and steady tripod for support. Dumbbell weights (sold separately) are recommended for use as counterweights because they are available in different increments and compact. The two Lock Jaw Collar clamps on the jib can move the weights closer and further away for balance.
