Glide Gear JB8 Overview

Create sweeping shots with your DSLR, mirrorless, or small camera rig using this 8' Portable Quick Jib System from Glide Gear. The system includes the 8' Quick Jib and a wireless transmitter/receiver monitor kit.

The aluminum jib arm features quick and easy setup, and its length can be extended up to 8', creating a maximum length of 12'. It can be mounted onto any tripod with a 1/4"-20 thread, and its camera mounting plate features 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting threads to accommodate various mounts, rigs, and heads. On the back of the arm are posts that can accept separately available barbell counterweights. The arm can support a camera rig up to 7 lb.

The included wireless monitor system consists of a 2.4 GHz transmitter and receiver set and a 7" RGB LCD monitor with an 800 x 480 resolution. It frees up the wires from your setup when your operator is at the base of the jib. The wireless kit has a maximum transmission range of 82'.

Glide Gear 8' Portable Quick Jib

This 8' Portable Quick Jib from Glide Gear is designed for use with DSLRs or other cameras weighing up to seven pounds. It telescopes from 4 to 8' and is 12 feet in total length. No need to purchase special weights; this portable jib uses standard barbell weights or sandbags as counterweights. It offers a quick and easy setup, and weighs in at 11 pounds (without weights).

Other features include an adjustable tension cable for added stability, a foam rubber–padded guide handle, both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera-mounting screws, and a scratch-resistant black finish to minimize visibility on set.

Glide Gear Wireless Monitor Transmitter/Receiver Kit

Wirelessly monitor what your camera is recording with this Glide Gear Wireless Monitor Transmitter/Receiver Kit. The kit is comprised of a 7", 800x480 resolution, TFT LCD monitor, a transmitter, a receiver, and all the necessary cabling to connect to a composite video source. An RCA female to female barrel connector is also included in case your, like some DSLRs, requires an A/V breakout cable. Wireless monitoring comes in handy when the camera can't be reached or interfered with. For example, when it's up on a jib or a crane or when it's being flown on a stabilizer or motorized gimbal. In optimal conditions, this kit has a maximum operating range of 82'. The transmitter requires a 9V battery for operation while the receiver has a built-in rechargeable battery, which also powers the monitor itself. Alternatively, the receiver can be powered directly off of the included AC adapter.

question

Are you able to tilt the camera with the head of the jib for different views?
Asked by: Lavon
In order to do pans and tilts of the camera while on the jib, you will also need a tripod head. It could be a photo head for compact locked-off positioning or a more flexible use video head. We have many available. The Benro S4 Video Head B&H # BES4 is but one suggestion.

When it says load capacity does it mean just the camera, or the camera plus the counterweights?

That refers to what you put up front on the jib.
