I've used the Losmandy Porta-Jib for years and it has travelled all over the world with me. In both the short and long configurations it adds great flexibility to my shooting style. We take baby and standard legs and then have amazing options for low and high angle moves.
It is compact and extremely easy and fast to set up. On one of our cruise ship shoots the camera assistant and grips staged a friendly contest to see who could be ready first and I think we were actually rolling a shot with the Porta Jib in under five minutes. It's a pretty remarkable piece of equipment that has served our needs well.
