Pretty Little Films review of the micro crane/jib from DSLR-Devices.com
The lower arm which wobbles a bit keeps the camera horizonal when you tilt up or down. The top arm is rock solid. On some cranes the lower arm is a wire!
I am very pleased with the crane.
Shot on the 7D with the 24-70L and the 50 1.4.
The camera on the tripod is a canon 550d with a sigma 18-50 2.8-4.5.
The tripod is a manfrotto 055 XProB (an excellent tripod)
The video head is a 701 HDV (again an excellent video head - I have 3 of them!!)
All the screws used are from manfrotto quick release plates.
The quick release adapter which the camera slides into is manfrotto as well.
The bag is a calumet stc35 support case 35.
It holds 2 055 tripods
3 701 hdv video heads
The crane and the masses
The bag is padded and very strong. It doesnt come with a shoulder strap but there are rings near the handles to attach one. It would have to be very strong though as all that kit does weigh alot! The bag does not have wheels. The cat isnt included with the bag!
Feel free to ask any questions
