Camera Jibs

Amazing productions are the result of professional filmmaking and cinematography but aside from talent, the right equipment is needed as well. Camera jibs are one type of equipment and are used to give the impact of a cinematic scope to the production. Also referred to as camera cranes, they help filmmakers achieve the elevation they require so as to capture better range and views.

A professional camera crane will do this by holding a camera on one side while controlling it and stabilizing it with the help of controls and a counterweight on the other end. The pivot of a professional camera crane is located closer to the counterweight so that the camera can move over a larger range.

Professional Camera Crane

The difference between different types of camera cranes and jibs is the elevation they provide and their weight. The elevation can be adjusted for each available model but there is always a range they can operate within which is set according to their weight; the heavier they are, the more stable. At the same time, camera jibs with little elevation should also have some weight to them so that they can film at a stable view. In the end, it’s up to you whether you want a lightweight or heavy camera crane because there are a number of versatile options to choose from, that can meet diverse needs.

Although it isn’t mandatory that you implement the use of camera jibs in your production, it still improves the quality because they help define the mood in a certain scene. By allowing filmmakers to capture scenes over an expansive area, camera jobs add a cinematic effect which sets apart well-produced films from those made by amateurs.

There aren’t special jib cameras that you will have to buy because jibs are developed to hold the weight of many standard cameras. You can pay a little more for a camera jib and get one which holds up more weight so that you have an all-rounder that can carry it all. The reach of camera jibs vary and the price is proportional to how much it can carry and reach. You can find some affordable camera jibs that lift up to 3 kilograms to a height of 9 feet. A tripod stands at the bottom of the camera jib so as to provide support to the structure.

The controls can also be either simple or complex, depending on the price. Certain models only have the feature to tilt a camera up and down while others have more controls. Pully wire systems and joystick cables are just a few ways that the camera jib is controlled. Gearheads are also available in this category and high-end models have a 180-degree tilting rotation and 360-degree panning rotation.

The gears in an expensive model are made from high-quality materials such as stainless steel so as to increase the longevity. Aspiring filmmakers often start small by purchasing a smaller camera jib and exploring the possibilities before moving on to a comprehensive model with better specifications and features
