Kessler Crane CJ1013 overview

  • 1Description

The Pocket Jib Traveler from Kessler Crane is designed for shooters that require an ultra-portable jib solution. It features a reach of 72" from the fulcrum when fully extended. The Pocket Jib Traveler is completely self-contained, and it collapses to 27" in length for transport and storage without requiring disassembly. The center-mounted camera platform provides stability and is designed to work seamlessly with the optional Kessler Kwik Release system for fast camera mounting.

The Pocket Jib Traveler is equipped with an adjustable sliding weight bar that provides fine-balance adjustment without significantly increasing the size of the jib. Engineered to be strong and lightweight, the jib features weight reducing window cuts that also improve its structural integrity. Incorporating both 3/8"-16 and ¼"-20 threaded mounting holes allow you to mount the jib to a variety of supports including an optional 100mm Ball kit with a 3/8"-16 stud or a standard tripod quick release plate. Integrated 1/4"-20 accessory mounting holes allow you to attach optional monitors and other accessories without affecting the operation of the jib.

    Kessler Crane CJ1013 reviews

    Pocket Jib Traveler is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I love love love it! After hours of researching the different options for compact, lightweight pocket jibs, I opted for the slightly heavier Kessler because it seems to be built best, carry a heavier camera load, have minimal flex, etc, etc. it does not disappoint. I was able to set it up without following any instructions, and it sets up in close to a minute. Word to the wise, go get a 5lb dumbbell free weight from @ ($) - this jib comes with a cling to hold the weight. 5lbs should do the trick for most cameras... Especially with the adjustability Kessler provides... Sliding the weight back/forth until it's just right, then lock 'er in. Enjoy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot better than I thought it would be I read a lot of reviews, watched every video on the web and made a decision to buy this product because it got a lot of very positive reviews. That being said, I didn't think it would be as good as it is. It was huge surprise looking at the quality of the manufacturing, materials and engineering. It is smooth as glass and he's here to assemble than I thought it would be. This is the central gear to any traveling videographer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product We use this for DSLR video work. Excellent build, nice balance, compact, and produces very smooth moves. Has a nice reach for how small it is when collapsed. It would be perfect if the camera platform had more movement options, but it's designed to be portable and something has to give. All Kessler products I've used are well machined, very strong and reliable. A bit expensive, but you get what you pay for.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Generally pleased. Well made, well designed, not quite as easy to use as I had hoped. I'm using with a Canon EOS 70D with attached battery pack which comes in just under 4 lbs. 5 lb weight on other end to balance. Causes slight bend in arm. A bit disconcerting. Does the job but seems at its limit weight wise. Also, a little bit more complex, touchy set up than I had hoped. Definitely needs two persons to set up as one person has to hold arm steady while camera is put up at one end, weight at the other. Once set up moves smoothly and with minimum effort. I also have a little bit of problem with tripod. Using a Manfrotto with ball head. Need ball head to level tripod before installing jib. But a little bit difficult setting tension and lock on ball tight enough so jib weight doesn't pull ball to side. So overall works well once everything set up and balanced but a little insecure along the way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jib; works very well I was looking for a compact, easy to use jib for real estate videos and some documentary actualities. I tried the DJI Osmo but it wasn't as smooth as I needed it to be (it still shows the slight up and down movements when you're walking, although it's really smooth otherwise). I've used Fisher dolly jibs and others and know how smooth they can be and while the Kessler Pocket Jib is no Fisher, it's still awesome. It's perfect for my needs. It's compact, easy to put together, very sturdy and works the way I hoped it would. When it's folded up, it's no larger than my collapsed Manfrotto tripod legs and it weighs about the same, maybe slightly less. The length is a big plus, too. I'm able to extend my tripod legs to full height and get large swooping shots when needed. I highly recommend to anyone looking for fluid and smooth dynamic shots with a compact jib.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built, great value! Bought this to assist in making videos of muscle and collector cars. Did months of research and considered building my own to save money. Glad I didn't, as this unit is compact and well engineered. I like the craftsmanship and cutouts that help reduce weight. I use it with a Canon 70D and accessories that weigh about 7 lbs. This all is balanced with a 5lb weight and moves smoothly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little crane Typical Kessler quality - excellent. Very compact folded. Works very well with DSLR on a modest tripod. Not super-sturdy, but that's the compromise for the size and weight. Works well for many b-roll applications and I've found it easy to setup, balance and use. If you understand it's limits, it's a very smooth and well machined product - recommended

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy When I was shopping for my jib I wanted something I could fold up and didn't have to hassle with when traveling. This fit all my needs and is really easy to operate with no hassle. If you are looking for something that can fold up to and toss in your truck this is perfect!
