CobraCrane CC1X overview

  • 1Description

The CobraCrane CC1X Single Arm Camera Jib is a single bar jib arm for small camcorders. This crane offers an 8 ft or 11 ft reach when matched with a 5 ft tripod and can sweep the ground for low-angle applications. This model comes with a 3 ft extension kit for an upgrade from the standard CobraCrane 1. Mounting the crane on an available tripod with a fluid head adds tilt capability.

Note: Tripod is sold separately.

Camera Movement
From the ground level the camera can be tilted up over 90 degrees, allowing the user to obtain a great perspective shot. Sweeping vista shots of landscapes, panoramas and sporting events are possible. The over the top shot is also ideal for cooking videos, food marketing videos, and variety of higher perspective shots
Quick Set-Up
This device is easily assembled with a quick no-tool set-up system. A Cobra-Crane made 501PL compatible QR plate is mounted with two 3/8" bolts to the base of the crane. This allows you to quickly and securely attach the crane to your tripod head. The QR plate is removable, and can be replaced with a user-supplied plate for use with a different tripod head.
The CobraCrane is solidly constructed from metal and is built to last.
Extension Kit
The extension kit allows 3' more length above the standard CobraCrane I.
Camera Tilt
In basic configuration the camera platform stays set, and does not tilt, as you crane up and down. However, mounting the crane on an available suitable tripod with fluid head, allows you to tilt the fluid head and have the cranes camera platform follow the motion of the tilt.

    CobraCrane CC1X reviews

    CC1X Single Arm Camera Jib (8') is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reply to Jerry Above This piece of equipment works FANTASTIC. I just got one two weeks and ago and I absolutely love it. It does take some practice to use it and assemble the extension. I can tell by Jerry's description he doesn't understand how to attach the extension. You have to move the tripod plate to the next hole closer to center as stated in the very clear instructions. If you don't the cable will not reach. I found every bit of this equipment very well done including the thoughtful instructions. Worth every penny and more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Well-Built Tool for Any Filmmaker The CobraCrane is very well built, and it is easy to assemble. I got some great crane shots on the first day of using it. An EXCELLENT tool. The only problem is that you MUST have a very heavy-duty tripod for it. The crane was left on my tripod overnight and it hurt the panning on it, probably stripped something. Also, to counter balance your system, it is necessary to go out and buy weights. It was made for use with the same kind of weights used on a bench press bar. But once you do, it is so balanced it could be left for hours unmoving, completely balanced. Weights cost me $18.00 for a 6.5 pound camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best use of the money! Very clever design, by replacing the additional bar to create the parallelogram needed to maintain the level of the camera, with a pulley/wire system, you gain an instant tilting function! It requires some practice but once you learned it, does a smooth job! Sometimes the tilting mechanism slips at the extreme positions, and you notice that on the footage. You can overcome this issue by properly adjusting the tension of the wire, and of course more practice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from wish i had a pan and tilt For its price and easy to set up and also easy to move around with. I must say i love it! To be able to shoot in any angle high & low. I love it. The only bad thing is no panning, just up and down. so if you are in a tight spot the panning would be a great thing to have. Again, it is great to have something like this and for the price? it is worth the gamble the extension at first was a bit confusing, but playing with it i figured it out. just look out for the little piece inside. You can remove it, but don't lose it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little gem! The unit was shipped down to our Cabo office. Initially, they had installation problems due to a problem on their side but a series of emails with the ever patient Rene from CC solved the problem! The CC1 with extension unit has proved to be an absolute boon for our office which deals in Real Estate marketing. The CC1, when used with the Manfrotto 504 head and 546GB tripod is a substantial beast but the rewards are well worth it. It can be managed by one but is better with two people assembling it on site. We're enjoying learning about the abilities but already, we're getting some beautiful shots and our clients are delighted. It's priced nicely, is built to last and will provide those on a smaller budget with a myriad of options. We're delighted with our purchase bought at a great price (as always) from B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it As an event videographer this piece of equipment gets a lot of attention. People are instantly impressed with it and for good reason. It gets great shots and is a life saver when you need to get over a lot of heads for a good shot. It's small and very light weight so it's easy to travel with. The only down side is that it is a bit flimsy. But it's worth it having something I can carry up a flight of stairs by myself.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from AWSOME This is a great tool for commercial shoots easy to set up and easy to use. My only wish is that it had pan and tilt compatability.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great affordable Jib! I use this for music videos. I've had it on two shoots so far. The extension gives you a great reach when getting those big rising and dropping shots. My main qualm with it is that the screw holes for mounting it to a tripod (or quick release plate) are threaded so deep in that you can't use the typical 1/4 screw but you have to use two larger 3/8 screws which aren't included. Make sure you have a good sturdy tripod for this. My Davis & Sanford Provista 7518 can hold 18 lbs but that's not enough for this jib! Avoid fluid head tripods for use with this. The weight from the jib, camera and counter weights will cause it to constantly tilt (yaw) towards the side with the weights and ruin your shots. Over all, it's a good investment if you're on a budget!
