I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for creating such a fantastic tool as the Porta-Jib Traveller!
You have no idea what an incredible asset it has been for us over the past couple of years – We’ve essentially traveled around the world projects!
But for us the ease with which the system travels is really the key – We spend a lot of time going through airports and loading and unloading the jib from Vans and SUVs, so being able to easily and quickly move the unit is a lifesaver.
The system is so good that it really lets us focus on the film and not the equipment, which is great. Even better is that it takes a beating and keeps on going -- And we’ve certainly pushed it to the realm of possibility – On our past several shows we’ve used it primarily with a Panasonic Varicam and a Panasonic HDX-900, their large, heavy cameras, but the Jib has handled both without any problems whatsoever.
We travel with a lot of gear, some of it only gets used occasionally but the Traveller however has become an indispensible part of our shooting style. It’s used virtually daily and we consider it an essential part of our filmmaking toolkit.
Great job designing such a fantastic piece of equipment!
