The SIRUI VTJ-1.8 Travel Jib provides creative height changes and following/panning capabilities not possible when your camera is at a fixed position. The VTJ-1.8’s portability, flexibility and economy make it ideal for any shooting situation! The precision machining and high performance bearings let you effortlessly pan across the scene or transition from a high viewpoint to ground level.
The forged aluminum alloy body parts are strong, light and can easily hold up to 4.5 kg (9.9 lb.) of gear. The lightweight, 10-layer 100% Carbon Fiber extendable arms provide total flexibility and reduced vibrations.
The SIRUI VTJ-1.8 includes a monitor platform that can hold a portable video monitor so you can see what the camera sees. SIRUI also includes a flat camera platform and video platform with a 75mm bowl. As you tilt the jib, the auto leveling mechanism keeps your camera perfectly horizontal, for undistorted results. Separate heavy-duty tilt and pan locking knobs make it easy to keep the VTJ-1.8 locked in place.
For smoothly flowing results, you’ll need to add a counter-balance weight onto the back of the jib to offset the weight of the camera system up front. SIRUI includes a foldable, donut-shaped plastic weight bag that can be filled with water or sand, that easily slides onto the back of the jib. To precisely control balance, the back section has an extendable weight bar.
The jib measures 1.82 m (71.6 in.) fully extended. The arms can close to 1.27 m (50 in.) when space is limited. The disassembled jib is only 85 cm (33.5 in.) long and neatly fits into its custom case. The 2.75 kg (6 lb.) SIRUI VTJ-1.8 is a portable jib that can go anywhere – even remote locations – with ease!
For maximum stability, the VTJ-1.8 should be placed on a strong, stable tripod like the SIRUI RX series tripods. The SIRUI RX series tripods have flat platforms without center columns for easy attachment, outstanding stability and enhanced vibration reduction.
