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

    JB4 4' Telescoping Jib is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good But Could Be Much Better Opening the package, out tumbles many tubes and other materials without a word (instructions) as to how they fit together. There is a brochure offering other products. After going online to see if there is a manual (none by the company), I assembled it by looking at the images at B&H to see how it should look after assembled. The other big distraction is poorly milled screws to tighten the rods that fit together. The supplied Allen wrench wouldn't fit properly into the hole to tighten. The problem was the hole (female portion where the Allen wrench fits) is poorly milled. The tightening is problematic and collapsed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Expected I was surprised to see that this gadget assembled in less than 10mins the first time. Compared to my old jib it is much better as this one is telescoping, and much lighter weight.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, could be better I used this on a product shoot, and it worked pretty well. Fairly smooth and light. Could be a made of a bit better quality, but the price is nice. It needs to be really tightened onto the tripod, though, or else there is a some play there. The threads for the screws are a bit wonky. Also, the design requires it to be greasy, which can be annoying when adjusting lengths. Wash your hands after before eating a sandwich.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well I have only used on a couple shoots so far, but it does the job well. On one shoot I used the 2nd camera mount for a gopro to get a wider version of the same shot and it worked well. The jib is simple, small and lightweight and adds the production value I was looking for when needed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth operation I shoot promotional/corporate-type videos for an HVAC manufacturer. This jib has definitely increased the production value of my videos. It's especially dramatic when I use a very short (20 mm) lens on my Canon EOS 5D Mark III and have large components looming in the foreground.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made For The Traveling Videographer...! I was concerned about the studyness of this but once I took it out a few times, no problems at all. Built really well and worth every cent. I shoot, edit & cut all by my lonesome and this is a major help in all ways and means - really glad I purchased this brand.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from garbage This thing is built like garbage, it's so hard to set up because everything will fall apart on you while you're trying to set it up. but hey, you get what you pay for. If you can somehow manage to get it up properly, you should get a few decent shots.
