question

What length HDMI cable would I need to run from the DSLR to the monitor that is mounted to the Kessler Pocket Jib Traveller?
Asked by: Joseph
(I just answered, but realized I gave inaccurate info.) It has a six foot circular extension, but the length from the fulcrum/base to the camera is about 3 feet, so I would get a 4-foot HDMI cable. Get a light, flexible HDMI cable though. Some are heavier and stiff which might be an issue. I haven't used the setup with the monitor attached near the base (I will), but I'm guessing it might be best to use a velcro strap or two to keep the cable tight with the arm. Anything to reduce unwanted bounce or movement.

question

Can I attach this to a dana dolly?
Asked by: Matt P.
The Dana Dolly is too small for this crane. I would think the moment you had the slightest imbalance, everything would go over and onto the ground in an instant.

question

Does the jib come with everything you need to keep the camera perfectly level as you tilt up and down, or is there some other fitment that is needed to achieve this? Can I clamp a DSLR to the end of it, move it up and down and the camera will stay perfectly horizontal?
Asked by: Anonymous
As long as you set the level first, you will achieve a level move. The jib is portable so you are limited to the move distance.
