The JonyJib2 is modular and expandable from 8’ (1 section) to 18’ (5 sections) in 3’ increments. Each extension tube is 4’ long with a 1’ overlap between sections. Since each section slides out, pulled from the previous sections, you may store unused sections in the tail as ballast weight. This lightens your counterweight demand. You can buy as few, or as many, sections as you need, then purchase more sections when you need them.
What sets the JonyJib2 apart from others is its ability to telescope and nest within itself. It does not require the unsightly and cumbersome cantilevers stabilization wires that other jibs in this range require. This crane’s modularity is built on its lightweight, octagonal, aluminum extension sections which, start at the tail and progressively get smaller as you get closer to the camera. The best part is, when the jib is disassembled it fits into an optional 53″ hard case with wheels. There’s also room for the pivot, camera platform, rear control center and miscellaneous items.
