OVERVIEW

Affordable camera jib for photographers & videographers for DSLR cameras

Digital Juice does it again with this affordable, portable jib crane to take your productions to the next level. Part of what makes a piece of gear great is actually using it. We've all purchased gear in the past that works really well, but was a bear to setup and teardown. And we've also fell for purchasing the gear that looked extremely friendly to transport and setup, but did not produce the sort of images you were expecting. That all stops with our latest product, the Digital Juice Lotus Jib. An affordable, reliable jib crane perfect for your DSLR or small cameras like Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and more! This jib crane is constructed with heavy duty aluminium, making it sturdy yet lightweight and completely portable in the neat, great quality bag it comes in. The budget friendly Digital Juice Lotus Jib has a very easy set up. To the mounting end of the jib add the camera and a tripod head if desired. You can even mount your camera directly to the jib’s mounting plate with the included bolt and knob. On the other end extend the counter balance extendable arm, secure it in place and begin adding standard weight plates until the camera begins to lift and you’re all set. For even more control mount your favorite ball head to the jib crane. If you need to see what’s on the camera at all times, you can easily pair and mount a production monitor to your jib so you will never have to shoot blind, no matter how high up the camera is. Ideal for beginners and professional photographers alike.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the maximum weight capacity for this unit?

We recommend a small footprint camera or DSLR minimally outfitted with wide angle lens.

How do you adjust focus while using?

It is recommended to use wide angle lens with plenty of depth potential.

Can this be used with a dolly system?

Absolutely. It will make extremely difficult floating tracking shots quite easy

Do I need a special tripod to use the Lotos Jib?

No. Any dedicated video tripod should yield great results.

Can my camera be mounted underneath or "underslung" to the jib mount?

Yes it can. The plate will work in a perpendicular manner if camera mounted to either top or bottom.
