About the Jimmy Jib

The modular nature of the Jimmy Jib camera crane means it can be quickly built from 6ft to 30ft in length, making it great for getting to places other camera cranes cannot, including on top of a high-rise building.

The Jimmy Jib is ideal for use in the studio and on location and works with a range of different cameras.  I've used, to name a few: HD fibre system cameras, HDCam, XDCam, Sony F55, Arri Alexa, Arri Amira, RED, RED Dragon and the Canon C300 and C500.

The Jimmy Jib will always come with two crew - a Jib operator and a Jib grip/technician.

  • Jimmy Jib crane (6-18ft) and remote head
