    Libec JB-30 Reviews

    JB-30 Heavy Duty Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Piece of Gear We have used this equipment for about 6 years now on approximately 30 to 40 events. Mostly in-doors, but a few out of doors. The camera movement on the jib is beautiful, smooth with no bounce. One person can set it up in about 30 to 45 minutes to include separate videocamera, LANC, motor head control cable, and video/audio cabling with a little practice. However, ensure you purchase a quality motorized head to put on it. While the jib kit is great, a cheap motorized head will give you cheap, jerky video. We used to mount SONY DSR-PD170s on it, and now use the SONY NX70U. But fairly sure it would work well with heavier cameras. Check the specs. We continue to use it to great effect and would purchase it again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jib Nice jib, but of course, the wider angle on your lens, the better results. Reccomend two people for setting up though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent jib for the price This jib is a great piece of gear. I have used it on two different corporate shoots and it is really smooth. I love the sliding counterbalance and have been able to zero it out in a matter of minutes with a complete camera package loaded up! Easy one man set up and very nice.
