So tired of lugging huge gear bags and 9kg weights for my 8ft Kessler Jib, I decided to make a mini-Jib. I did some quick mock-ups to work out the optimum lengths, camera travel and balance weights then cut metal!

All the contact surfaces have PTFE sheet fitted for super smooth action and I fitted a ram-mount ball on the top for holding a field monitor.
With my FS700 it uses 2 x 2kg and a trimmer weight to adjust the balance when using different lenses. Test film coming soon.
