EZ FX Jib Added to Big Pictures Toolkit
The EZ FX Jib adds the high production value of fluid movement, at a lower in terms of cost of both time and money than larger jibs.The EZ Jib provides up to 7 feet of vertical movement, and provides a maximum camera height of 10 feet. It takes our crews under fifteen minutes to set this baby up, and it works with any of our cameras - from the smaller HPX170 and Canon 5D MII to the heavier full-sized HD cameras. It holds up to 50 pounds. We've even used it with the HDX900 on a CBS shoot with a teleprompter for the host attached to the camera!
Our EZ jib has already been on a number of shoots, from a National Geographic Megastructures Program, to a multi-camera racquetball tournament, to an ABC/ESPN feature on Carmelo Anthony. It’s also been out on a quite a few corporate shoots, providing movement and interest to those dreaded computer and cubicle shots!
Give us a call for more info, or about adding the EZ jib to any of our packages.
UPDATE 2012 - We've added a new heavy duty Manfroto tripod and a set of dolly wheels to this package to give this jib ultimate mobility.
