I recently rented the Porta-Jib Standard from Rule Broadcast in MA.
I configured it with the extension and underslung a New Sony BRCH700 HD camera with built in pan and zoom capabilities. It is now my preferred rig for any surgical shoots I do. Some pictures below of the Total Shoulder replacement surgery I recorded in Cleveland. I have also used this set-up for a total ankle replacement recently.
