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.

MC50 Motorized Head

Total remote camera operation becomes possible with the MC50 system. Designed for mini DV/HD and other small cameras under 12 lbs, the MC50 utilizes the same rugged and field-tested electronics and controls that have made the MC100 so popular for years. Whether it is mounted on a jib or crane, placed on a tripod as a 'robotic cameraman', or in a fixed location in an auditorium or church, you will have full capability to pan and tilt from the slowest sustained crawl to the rapid moves needed to follow the action. No jib is complete without a motorized pan/tilt head, and the MC50's lightweight, universal mounting base and intuitive, compact control box make it a breeze to set up and operate.

VariZoom QuickJib Reviews

Very nice Jib

By Freeway Flyer
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2015-04-26

This is a very nice jib. All parts are stout and capped with aluminum fitting rather than plastic plugs as I have seen on most other jibs. Tripod and dolly are also very strong and nicely finished. The MC50 very smooth panning and tilting via a thumb joystick. The MC50 remote head will handle about 15-20 pounds but the jib itself will handle much more. No problems all good so far and I was referred by another happy Quick jib owner with a heavier Varizoom remote head.

an excellent product!

super easy set-up and to balance. the movable weight bar is such an added bonus. allowing you to use the jib in tight spaces, and to fine-tune the balance. the need for no tools to set up is just the best. my jonyjib takes several different size wrenches and longer to set-up. I plan on getting the add on length now that I see just how fast and what a versitle jib this is. very smooth pan and tilt and love the break adjustment on it. really can't say enough. well made and very decent bag comes with it.

Smooth jib gets great shots

This was purchased with a MC-100 remote head, which I would deem a neccesity given the length and reach of the jib. Out of the box, it is very smooth in all axes and feels solidly constructed. The included dolly and tripod are of similar quality, and the entire package goes together smoothly. One surprise, indicated in the directions, was that the jib isn't desinged to be built at the shorter length. As the pivot section has the requisite holes (but no end plate, as on the extension), I plan to try building it in the short configuration anyway. Our first shoot with the jib was liberating - we had it up and running quickly and were able to make use of it indoors and out. Instant production value! I had considered purchasing the more expensive jib from VariZoom, but am quite content with this one - an excellent value for the money. The supplied bags are nice but don't feel like they will stand up to a lot of abuse (one of the rubber feet has already detached).

Well thought out camera jib

I agree with all of the other reviews and ratings. Extremely well made and a bargain at the price. I looked at others and nothing really comes close to the quality build with very well made brake, and boom and super smooth heavy duty pivoting base.

Nice Jib

Once I learned how to assemble the jib it was very fast and easy. It was a little tough at first, just because I have never assembled one. The instructions could use some improvement. For example a clear picture of the completed jib would have been helpful. The jib it self is very smooth and easy to use. Due to the ad I thought the jib came with a tripod. It does not. If you do not have a tripod for a jib be sure to order one.

Best Jib out there for professionals

This is a very well made product and well thought out as well. Every part looks precision made and fits beautifully together and breaks down easily as well. Smooth and stabile (no bounce as with cheaper jibs) this is old school and will out last the life of the owner and pass to another generation and I can't say that about many products made today. Do watch the videos available and visit the manufacturers site to see sections up close. I can tell you there are some jibs if you saw them up close you would run. Even the custom case is of very high quality with a very high quality material.

Excellent jib

We use the jib to expand the range of shots on a talk/variety show. It is well made, quick and easy to set up, and is highly portable for field use. Accessories like a 4' extension and a servo head expand its capabilities even more. This is the fourth piece of VariZoom gear we've gotten in the past 10 years, and I've always been very pleased with the durability, functionality, price, and responsive customer service.

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.

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.

"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.

Does this work with Canon G50 or similar LANC style remote controlled cameras?
Asked by: William
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
