Tips for Choosing the Right Jimmy Jib Lite Camera Crane
The Jimmy Jib Lite comes in several lengths and is available with a variety of accessories. You should first determine the ideal length for the jib based on your production needs. The available lengths include 6 feet, 12 feet, and 18 feet. A 6-foot jib is useful for covering small areas, such as a studio or on location inside a building or home. If you have limited space but still want the freedom to move left and right quickly, the 6-foot option may be the ideal length.
A longer jib is useful for adding more height to your shot but pay attention to clearance when shooting indoors. The average ceiling is about 9 feet tall in residential spaces and 16 to 24 feet in commercial settings. Along with a jib, you may need other camera accessories to complete your project. At MTJIBS, we have a variety of equipment to ensure that you get the shots that you want. Allow us to help pair the Jimmy Jib Lite with the best accessories, including cameras, lenses, and gimbals.
No matter the setting, the Jimmy Jib Lite is a smart choice. It gives you the stability and height needed for composing your dream shot.
