iFootage M1-III overview

  • 1Description

The M1-III Mini Crane from iFootage is a compact, portable jib arm featuring lightweight carbon-fiber construction, a telescoping square-arm tube, and multiple mounting options. Its square tube design helps to minimize potential shaking during operation. The M1-III has a maximum payload of 33 lb in standard mode and 22 lb in low-angle mode. The main jib arm and the counterweight arm each have one telescoping stage (two sections) with locking thumb-lever knobs. Standard barbell weights (available separately) may be used as counterweights.

Mount your DSLR (or other small camera) on either of two included quick release plates: the M1 or the Motion X2. The M1 plate has both a flat camera plate and a ball mount, enabling use of a fluid head (with a 60 or 75mm ball). The Motion X2 plate is used with micro cameras or when using wide- angle lenses. Both the arm base and the camera base incorporate 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 holes for mounting accessories.

The adjustable tilt-damping knob, the tilt lock, and the pan drag function give you added control over your crane shots. For programmable moves, the M1-III can be used with the iFootage Motion X2 or other motion control systems.

Note: Low-mode use requires the M1 Low Profile Quick-Release Adapter (available separately).
Counterweights are not included.

    iFootage M1-III reviews

    M1-III Mini Crane Jib Arm is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great build quality & thought put into this product Happy with my purchase! Would recommend I am not down playing the product, simply sharing my experience so far with the JIB. The product detail live up exactly to my real world experience. It is meant to be light weight, strong and easy to take with your on a gig or travel. Some things to consider before your purchase. This JIB is not for every rig or camera set-up. Simply because of possible weight issues. If your shooting a regular dslr/mirrorless rig, no problem at all! Its when you begin to add accessories onto your rig, it can be somewhat limiting. If your shooting with a heavy tripod head, its a down side... I shoot with the BENRO S8 which weight 6lbs. I also shoot with the pix-e5 monitor and it gets real heavy when two Sony NP-970 batteries attached. Plus a heavy Zeiss lens can quickly exceed the weight limit on the jib. Food for thought. I love the jib and it fits into my smaller rig work flow no problem. If your thinking of the sony f5 or RED Raven because you want a travel jib. You may be able to get away with that ONE shot your looking for. But as a long term gear choose for a heavy camera it will not work. I will fix this issue by buying a higher-end fluid head that is light weight. Also another thought to share is if you use a brick battery for your Black Magic Cinema camera for example, I will hook the battery back on my belt while in use. Saves weight on the rig. I have had no problems on shoots before. Its actually a preferred way to work for me At the end of the day, it depends on how you want to use the jib. Hope my comments help. Again, simple my experience with the JIB so far :) C

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jib For the price, this is the best jib you can buy. My Red Scarlet-W rig with matte box, follow focus, fluid head, etc is probably 20+ lbs and the iFootage holds it no problem. Small and light enough for travel, although the weights on the end can pose a problem with luggage weight.Very well made with keen attention to details. Feels sturdy and smooth. One thing to look for. My jib had a squeaking sound at first which was terrible for audio. Turns out, the bolt attaching the arm to the base was too tight. Loosened it, and no more noise and works great. I use it on some Manfrotto legs with these Tripod Wheels which makes moving around a breeze. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=manfrotto+tripod+wheels&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&typedValue=&Top+Nav-Search= The only thing I wish is that the up-down can be locked down. Theres a Tighten knob but it does not do much except add a bit of friction. Overall, excellent product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Crane Very nice build quality. Smooth function. The carbon fiber makes it light. Excellent case. Mount it on a nice heavy tripod such as their T-5 or T-7 Bull, pick up some old weights to serve as a counterweight and you are all set. I'm glad I spent a few more dollars on this one instead of putting a $3k DSLR on a cheap crane.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from i Footage M1-3 well worth the purchase The unit is easy to mount and use and offers smooth motion. I'll be taking it to the field (literally, in Africa) in July, so I'll get a better sense then. But so far, so good. The only tricky thing is in repacking it in the case. Remember to turn the trim bar (you'll know when you see it) to angle the jib properly for packing up after the shoot.
