The CobraCrane CC1HD Heavy Duty Single Arm Camera Jib is a lightweight portable crane designed for use with DSLR and video cameras. The 10' crane can reach a height of 14' on a 5' tripod (not included), and operate at ground level as well. It's streamlined, with several pivot points making it easy to mount higher or lower on a tripod for increased control of balance. The CobraCrane 1HD's chain and sprocket design is particularly effective when using front-heavy cameras or large lenses--it helps eliminate the tendency of a large lens or heavy camera to tilt forward.
Minimal break-down time (5 minutes) means more efficient and productive shooting schedules. An improved 1/2" axle and new cable chain drive mechanism makes this an unusually versatile portable crane. The tripod quick release plate is removable, so that switching to your tripod's quick release plate for a secure fit onto your tripod head is quick and easy. The CobraCrane 1HD is compatible with virtually all heavy-duty tripods including Manfrotto 501/503/504 heads. The Manfrotto 503HDV-028B is recommended for use with the CobraCrane I HD. Mounting the crane on an available tripod with a fluid head adds tilt capability.
