The CobraCrane FotoCrane UltraLite Single Bar Jib is a portable variable-length crane designed for use with DSLR cameras up to 3 lb in weight. The crane can reach a height of 8' on a 5' tripod (not included), and has a built-in camera tilt mechanism. The retractable crane can be quickly adjusted from 3' to 5.25'. It can be easily operated without any additional crew needed.

Minimal set-up and break-down time means more efficient and productive shooting schedules. This ultralite crane is compatible with virtually all heavy-duty tripods including Manfrotto 501/503/504 heads. The Manfrotto 501HDV-028B or 503HDV-028B, or a CCUSA-certified tripod is recommended for use with the FotoCrane UltraLite. Mounting the crane on an available tripod with a fluid head adds tilt capability.
