Varicam's QuickJib is an affordable, high-performance jib for cameras weighing up to 50 lbs (22.7kg). This professional, no-tools jib arm assembles safely and quickly, delivering a stable and secure base from which your camera can float and roam. Portable and compact, the QuickJib attaches to a level, secured tripod and can extend to over 10 feet (or nearly 14 feet with an optional extension). The perfect combo of quality and economy, the QuickJib 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.

"Except for full motion control capability, the ...

"Except for full motion control capability, the Jibstick Jr manual kit has all of the electromechanical performance of other kits." What does this mean? Does it come with the ability to pan and tilt? The line "except for full motion control" gives me the impression that pan and tilt ability are limited in some way?
Asked by: Daniel
According to VariZoom, full motion control means repeatability, being able to stop and start in the same programmed position, know where the head is, or repeat actions over and over. This kit has the same pan and tilt capability as the others, but the controller has no positional data, so it is a live manual controller only with speed and smoothing control. Also does not have built-in lens control.

How much ground (floor space) and operational space around the Jib does this need?
Asked by: Nathan
According to Varizoom the center of the included dolly to the dolly leg is 22 inches. The jib itself will go up 10 feet, you would want to have at least that much clearance around it. To be safe you may even want to be in the 15-20 foot range.

Does this work with Canon G50 or similar LANC style remote controlled cameras?
Asked by: Will
You most certainly will be able to use a camcorder like the G50 on this jib. However the remote included will not control the zoom on the camera. You would just need to add an additional LANC controller and extension cable for that. Varizoom Controller - https://bhpho.to/2l5fHGu Extension cable - https://bhpho.to/2Jc1iDl

How long does it take to go from in the case to operational with this Jib? Does it come with/ have a recommended case?
Asked by: Nathan
This kit includes a Crane Case along with cases and bags for the various components included. As far as how long it will take to set up, there will certainly be some learning curve with the set up to start. I would imagine it will take a sometime once you first start using it and as you get more familiar with the product you'll be able to have it up in a matter of minutes down the line.

question

Would this kit handle a small camera (Sony PXW-X200) and teleprompter assuming the combined weight is below stated limit. Will it be able to balance with the prompter on? Thanks!
Asked by: David
We must admit not hearing about using a teleprompter on a crane before. But that is not to say it cannot work. In certain situations it may be the perfect or only solution. That being said, we have the opinion that since the Sony PXW-X200 weighs 10 lbs and the payload of the VariZoom QuickJib Kit is 50 lbs, as long as the teleprompter is less than 40 lbs, you will be good. There may be an outside chance the baseplate cannot go back far enough to balance. In that case, a longer base plate would solve the problem.
