STANDARD PORTA-JIB®              $2995
Requires the addition of a Front Insert
And a Base to interface with a tripod.
See Front Insert and Base pricing below.

Reach 57" (145cm) - Boom 72" (183cm)     Wt. 60 lbs. (27kg)

This is the most versatile of all small jibs because of its ability to interface with a variety of professional fluid heads and tripods and carry up to 100 lbs. of front end camera/fluid head weight. It future-proofs your investment since it can accommodate small cameras with 100mm fluid heads, as well as heavily accessorized cameras requiring 150mm or Mitchell based fluid heads.

It assembles in less than 5 minutes. No tools required. All parts are machined aluminum and stainless steel. Boom lock, pan lock, Vector Balancing Bar, and Fine Tuning Weight are included. However, the Porta-Jib Custom Case, Front Inserts, Bases, and Counterweights are not included. See accessory pricing below.

Notes about Bases:
1) We purposely do not make a 100mm base for the jib because most 100mm tripods are not strong enough to carry this much weight. Our Traveller Jib is designed to work with 100mm tripods.
2) When using our 3-Way Leveler, no additional base is needed to interface with our LW Tripod. When using our 3-Way Leveler and a Mitchell or 150mm tripod, you will also need a Mitchell or 150mm Base.

Balanced Monitor Bracket - for front-operated jib work    $395

Balanced Monitor Bracket

Now 8 inch (or smaller) monitors can be used as an easy-to-view on-camera display for jib work. As you boom the camera up and down, this new bracket's handle allows you to have your left hand controlling the angle of the monitor at all times, and  because it is balanced, whenever you let go of the handle, the monitor will remain in that angle. So, for example, as the camera is boomed upward, above your head, you can flip the monitor, as you let go with your left hand, into a downward angle that will be easy to see, confident that the monitor will retain its desired angle for viewing.

The bracket assembly mounts between your camera's base and the fluid head's balance plate, and comes with its own balance plate assembly to mount to your camera. This bracket allows you to move the monitor fore and aft, as well as up and down to obtain nodal point balance. It then has a drag adjustment that allows it to move smoothly to keep it from being completely free-wheeling.

Low Profile 3-Way Leveler
Attaches to the base of either the Standard Porta-JIb or Traveller and drops into the top of the tripod. Allows you to level the jib without moving the tripod legs. This is especially useful for those who want to have the Standard Jib on our rolling 3-Leg Spider. As one rolls from point A to point B, the floor invariably changes in level. So rather than trying to move the legs, which is difficult with a fully loaded jib, especially with the foot of the tripod locked into place on the dolly, you can now simply make the leveling adjustment at the base of the jib. Its low profile allows it to remain attached to the SPJ and still fit into the SPJ's custom case.

3 Way Leveler

17" MINI KIT                                    $550
Converts the Standard Porta-Jib into a much smaller unit for working indoors where space for the full sized jib is unavailable.
Kit includes: 17" front main tube, 17" front secondary arm, and 17" rear steel weight bar. Provides approximately 3' of vertical lift.

36" EXTENSION KIT                      $500
- Increases Reach to 92" (234cm)
- Increases Boom to 131" (333cm)
- Adds 9 lbs (4.1kg)
- Note: Recommended weight capacity:
  45 lbs. (20kg.)
- Extra counter weights will be needed.
It takes 30 lbs. to balance the extended front, and the camera/fluid head needs 2.5X weight to balance.

Additional Counter Weight - $3.00/lb.
Our weights are engraved with the Porta-Jib name, and are powder-coated to prevent them from rusting. Any barbell weights with a standard 35mm hole will work, but rusting will usually occur. Our weight shaft has a 1" (25mm) diameter.
