Glide Gear JB4 Overview

The Glide Gear JB4 4' Telescoping Jib is a flexible production tool for creating cinematic moves. It features an adjustable reach from 20" to 4' as measured from the fulcrum and supports up to 6 pounds of camera and accessories. It is made from CNC machined 6061 aluminum for its balance of weight to strength and weighs in at only 6 pounds.

The jib's versatility is further enhanced by the included L-bracket that lets you mount a second camera to the side of the camera platform. Both the camera platform and the removable L bracket have built-in bubble levels so that you can confirm level. The jib mounts to an optional tripod via either a 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 threaded mounting stud. The camera platform and L bracket feature 1/4"-20 camera tie-downs.

The jib has an extendable reach of 20" to 4', by loosening the locking levers on the arm.
The jib uses optional standard dumbell sized counterweights to balance the weight of your camera, and the counterweight arm extends backwards for fine-tuning. Glide Gear recommends between 5 and 10 pounds of counterweight, depending on your camera.
The jib is CNC machined from strong, yet lightweight 6061 aluminum and painted with a scratch resistant black paint to provide protection from the rigors of production.
A 1/4"-20 to 3/8"-16 adapter is included.
All necessary hardware and tools, except for a tripod or counterweights, are included.
Glide Gear recommends that you support the jib using an optional professional grade tripod that can handle more than the combined weight of the camera and jib.
Includes carry bag

question

Will this work for dslrs and what kind if monitor would you suggest to go with this?
Asked by: Kenny E.
Yes, this should work with most DSLRS. It supports up to 6 pounds. I use a MustHD Field Monitor (M700H) and it works great. It has a 7 1024X600 LCD (supports up to 1920X1080) with all the bells and whistles.

Can I assemble it with the arms upside down to face the camera mount downwards?

Yes, the arms can easily be removed and inserted upside down rotating the camera mount downwards. It also comes with an L bracket for 90 degree shots. Warning: you may need a very sturdy tripod to hold it and your camera .

question

Can you mount the camera to get a straight down shot?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can mount the camera for any shot at any angle, including straight down, either stationary or moving. For stationary shots, you need to balance the arm; there is no locking-in-place mechanism. This has not been problem for me (balancing is easy).
