OUR PART # VZ-QUICKJIB
VariZoom's QuickJib represents the perfect balance of quality and economy in a well thought-out design. This is the answer for those who love all of the options of the SnapCrane, but aren't ready to spend that much. The Quick Jib gives you many of the features of the Snap Crane at a more affordable price. With the Quick Jib you get an economical, but secure captive clamp system for extending the jib, along with lanyard-attached stainless aircraft pins for quick assembly. The QuickJib is a professional, tool-free jib arm that assembles rapidly and safely. The QuickJib, like all of our products, was designed for years of trouble-free, reliable operation in the field.
Jib Arm - The QuickJib selectively uses industrial powder coating and anodizing for durable cosmetics, with stainless steel fasteners throughout. The slim QuickJib outperforms the competition by having less air resistance in breezy conditions than jibs utilizing a four-arm support system (never use in high-wind conditions). The QuickJib will mount to any 100mm tripod, although we recommend only using non-telescoping legs for safety.
Additionally, a quick extension kit attaches in minutes with absolutely no tools, as opposed to more cumbersome systems that require multiple tools and bolts to attach their extensions. The extension kit mates to the standard QuickJib with VariZoom's Captive Clamp Joint system, which uses two ergonomic, high-torque hand knobs to compress the captive clamps, assuring the joint is rock solid.
Brake System - VariZoom's Brake system utilizes a heavy-duty plate that is securely mounted to the pivot section. Brake compression system is built into the left stator of the pan/tilt base and designed to add significant variable drag, but forgiving enough to slide under extreme force that could otherwise topple a locking-brake jib system.
Locking Pins - Locking stainless aircraft pins of high quality and strength are used at the pivot points, and they are attached by lanyard to prevent them from ever being lost.
Tilting Mechanisms - Camera platform and tilt base join to the jib arm with stainless aircraft pins that insert through sealed radial ball bearings at the tilt base and high-performance sleeve bearings at the camera platform, resulting in silent, smooth motion. The camera platform also has a built-in spirit level for quick reference and adjustment.
Telescoping Counterweight Section - Telescoping weight arm adjusts up to 3 feet for tremendous flexibility. Extend the arm to reduce the amount of weight needed, shorten it to work in tighter spaces, or simply adjust it to fine-tune the counterbalance.
VariZoom jibs are professional tools with quick setup, long-term reliability, and outstanding performance.
