The unique (and patent-pending!) design of this jib contains all of the mechanical components inside of a single tube, giving it a sleek look while being incredibly easy to setup. The Axis features a 4 foot reach, a 7 foot vertical arc and effortlessly supports up to 50 lbs (22.7 kg). The Axis was designed and stress tested using 3D modelling software to ensure industry defying stiffness. You can also achieve repeatable pan and tilt movements when indexing the magnetic dry-erase marker rings located on each side of the jib...an industry first. Construction of this jib is 100% CNC machined 6061 aluminum, which is fully anodized in our typical flat black, non-reflective lifetime finish.
The Axis Jib comes with a fixed 100mm half ball and will drop into 100mm bowl tripods. At the end of the jib is a 100mm bowl mount which will accept any 100mm video tripod head. The 100mm bowl at the jib head can be oriented in 3 positions to achieve low angle "ground scraping" shots. 75mm heads can be mounted as well using a 75mm-to-100mm bowl adapter.
The counterweight end features a 1" diameter handle to accept common size weights (not included). Provided is the 2.0 lb (0.9 kg) collared trim weight which securely slides along the jib for fine-tuning the balance. The recommended camera-to-counterweight ratio is 2:1.
