VariZoom QuickJib Overview

The VZQJ2K-CPJ5 QuickJib Camera Crane & CinemaPro Jr K5 System from VariZoom includes the QuickJib camera crane kit and CinemaPro Jr K5 remote head for cameras weighing up to 35 lb.

Portable and compact, the QuickJib camera crane attaches to the custom TCR100 crane tripod, which fits perfectly into the heavy-duty DC100 adjustable dolly. This professional, no-tools jib arm system assembles safely and quickly, extending up to 5' without extension and up to 9.5' with extension (included). It features a secure captive clamp system for extending the jib, along with lanyard-attached stainless-steel aircraft pins for quick assembly. The CinemaPro Jr K5 remote head comes with a Jibstick Jr controller that features a compact video game-type thumb joystick for pan/tilt control, as well as speed, smoothing, deadband, and direction controls.

VariZoom QuickJib Extension Kit with TCR100 Tripod & DCR100 Dolly

VariZoom's QuickJib Extension Kit with TCR100 Tripod & DCR100 Dolly is an affordable, high-performance jib kit for cameras weighing up to 30 lbs (13.6kg). This professional, no-tools jib arm system assembles safely and quickly, extending to nearly 14 feet (4.26m). Portable and compact, the QuickJib attaches to the custom TCR100 crane tripod, which fits perfectly into the heavy-duty DC100 adjustable dolly. You're ready to roam! The perfect combo of quality and economy, this QuickJib system will provide years of reliable operation, whether indoors, outside, or in the studio.

Jib Arm

The QuickJib selectively uses industrial powder coating and anodizing for optimal component performance, with stainless steel fasteners throughout (as opposed to lesser, cheaper zinc-plated fasteners). The slim QuickJib outperforms the competition by having 50% less air resistance in breezy conditions than jibs utilizing a four-arm support system.

Brake System

Brake system utilizes a heavy-duty plate that is securely mounted to the pivot section. Brake compression system is built into a stator and designed to compress firmly and securely, while remaining forgiving enough to slide under extreme force that might otherwise topple a locking-brake jib system.

Locking Pins

Locking stainless aircraft pins of the highest quality and strength are used at the pivot points, and they are attached by lanyard to prevent them from ever being lost.

Tilting Mechanisms

Camera platform and tilt base join to the jib arm with stainless aircraft pins that insert through sealed radial ball bearings at the tilt base and high-performance sleeve bearings at the camera platform, resulting in silent, smooth motion. The camera platform also has a built-in spirit level for quick reference and adjustment. Paired with an optional Zero Gravity head, you have a professional manual overhead jib.

Telescoping Counterweight Section

Telescoping weight arm adjusts up to 3 feet for tremendous flexibility. Extend the arm to reduce the amount of weight needed, shorten it to work in tighter spaces, or simply adjust it to fine-tune the counterbalance.

TCR100 Crane Tripod

This custom-built crane tripod is the only tripod VariZoom recommends for use with any crane, no matter the brand. We recommend you never use a telescoping or collapsible tripod under a crane, no matter how small. When supporting an expensive camera on a jib elevated above other valuable equipment or people, it's simply common sense to eliminate all risk and use a single-section tripod instead of a telescoping one.

The TCR100 was designed with safety and strength in mind, combining a solid machined base-plate (not molded), specialty heavy-gauge tubing, and oversize leveling feet for an ultra-stable design that will never falter or fail. With anodized aluminum, stainless steel fasteners and solid brass bushings, the TCR100 will last a lifetime.

DCR100 Dolly

VariZoom's heavy-duty dolly has an ample spread and a positive leg-locking system that securely captures the TCR100 crane tripod.

VariZoom VZCINEMAPRO-JR-K5 Cinema Pro Jr Remote Head with Jibstick Jr Control Unit

The VariZoom VZCINEMAPRO-JR-K5 is a high-performance compact jibstick control kit with a thumb control design. It consists of the Cinema Pro Jr Remote Head and the Jibstick Jr Control Unit, 50' Control Cable, 30' XLR Power Extension, Power Supply, and Case. At only 13 lb, the Cinema Pro Jr Remote Head is suitable for jib and crane applications. It can be set up quickly, and is capable of precise, repeatable movements at any speed. It can also be used as a high speed fixed-mount head or a mobile remote head for small to mid-scale productions. 

Except for full motion control capability, the Jibstick Jr manual kit has all of the electromechanical performance of other kits. It employs a precision thumb control joystick on a compact handgrip control box, and The Jibstick Jr works beautifully where intuitive manual control is needed, and it can be upgraded later with an advanced console and pan bars or hand wheels. The new Jibstick Jr allows you to reverse direction on pan & tilt independently, adjust speed limits for pan & tilt independently, adjust joystick deadband, and set smoothing control for softer starts and stops.  

The Cinema Pro Jr is precision-made yet rugged, and incorporates high-end features as precision enclosed drivetrain, and pan slip ring. Cost effective not only for big budget motion pictures, but for worship facilities, sports, concerts, newsrooms, military, government, and other film, video, and HD applications. 

Made in the USA, the Cinema Pro Jr is constructed from body sections that are CNC-machined from solid billet to exacting standards, with high rigidity and structural integrity. The custom slip rings and robust motor drives are designed and tested intensively to perform flawlessly under demanding conditions, and the electronics and software have years of field testing behind them. Add to all this the assembly and QC done in VariZoom’s state-of-the-art facility, and you've got a high-caliber motion control head.
