PORTA-JIB® TRAVELLER                $2495

Lightweight and Portable With Variable Arm Length

Reach 38-55" (96-140cm)
Boom 41-68" (104-173cm)
Wt. 29 lbs. (13.2kg)

Designed for videographers and 16mm cinematographers who need to travel light. Weighing only 29 lbs. (13.2kg), it supports 40 lbs. (18kg) of camera and fluid head. So compact, it folds up with no loose parts and fits into a baby tripod case. Its unique telescopic design allows it to work in constricted areas and also unfold to create a dramatic 6 foot lift. And best of all, it uses the 100mm style tripod and head you already own. Like the rest of the Losmandy line, it is manufactured to the highest quality standards: all parts are anodized black machined aluminum or stainless steel. All moving parts are controlled by sealed precision ball bearings. Bubble levels are located on the center column and camera plate for easy levelling. With a weight ratio of less than one-to-one, and the sliding counterweight shaft for fine tuning, the arm can be balanced in a matter of seconds, with a limited number of counter weights. Since no chains, belts or cables are used, the Losmandy Porta-Jib Traveller requires little maintenance. Boom friction and pan friction with variable drag are standard features. Base price includes Vector Balancing Bar. However, official Porta-Jib counterweights are additional.

Note: Official Porta-Jib weights are powder-coated and bear the distinctive Porta-Jib name stamped into the metal. Weights are priced at $3 per pound. For more on weight options, click here.

Warning note for customers using their own tripods to support the Traveller.
Although it is true that most customers who buy our Traveller Jib use their own tripods as the support, please take the following into consideration. Most 100mm tripods are not designed for the payload of a jib and counterweights. Often they do not feel as if they are rigid enough for the job. The leg locks, in particular, may be inadequate to support this additional weight. If you do choose to use your own tripod check it carefully once loaded. Push down on the fulcrum assembly, where it mounts to the tripod, to test that the leg locks are holding. The worst thing that can happen is if a leg lock gradually creeps and you do not notice it until it is too late.
