The Kessler Pocket Jibâ„¢ is the ultimate compact, portable jib. Not only is this jib fully collapsible for easy transport, but you can also mount the Kessler Pocket Dollyâ„¢ or CineSliderâ„¢ to it, turning it into a virtual “all-in-one” production tool, offering both a jib and mini-dolly in one unit.
The Pocket Jibâ„¢ has a telescopic dual rail arm design that has a maximum reach of five feet, fully extended, which is approximately 6″ less than our KC-8 crane. The end of the crane arm features a ball relocator with 100mm bowl, so you can mount a 100mm ball fluid head. The weight bar system is also telescopic and collapses and folds away for easy transport.
The Pocket Jibâ„¢ comes standard with the Swivel Mount that allows you to mount the Pocket Jibâ„¢ to your tripod using a 100mm levelable ball, 75mm fixed ring mount, or a flat mount. If you would like to mount the Pocket Jibâ„¢ to your Hercules 2.0 head, the Swivel Mount can be removed and the Pocket Jibâ„¢ mounted flush to the Hercules 2.0 with the tilt locked with the pin lock in place.
