Edelkrone JibONE Hands On (a Smart Motorised Jib)

Edelkrone has just released a super exciting new product – the Edelkrone JibONE. This relatively compact and portable jib has a motor which is controlled by an app and can work with different heads including  Edelkrone’s robotic head (called the HeadPlus) which gives you more than 3 axis of movement in addition to the jib itself.

The JibONE can keep your camera facing forward while moving vertically, horizontally or diagonally and you can control it both manually and through the app. The operation is based or either dual batteries LP-E6/NP-F (not included) or AC, it is fully made from CNC aluminum and it only weighs in at 5.5kg/12lb (while it can carry up to 5kg/11lb of payload).

The JibONE is a relatively short jib with a 20 inch (50 cm) camera travel when fully extended and it comes with 4 counterweights which are very easy to add and set. If you want to carry it around it has a special Backpack.
