DitoGear™ MiniJibOrder now
There are three possible configurations to use the MiniJib. You can use one or two DitoGear™ OmniHead Units to create a motorized jib or choose the unmotorized, manual option to increase the payload and operate it the traditional way. DitoGear™ MiniJib can also be mounted on sliders, dollies and other supports providing a 3/8″ threaded mount. We recommend using Motorized MiniJib with DitoGear™ OmniSlider or T’rantula HD.
MiniJib default mounting option gives the possibility to mount the MiniJib directly on the OmniHead Unit or the Manual Operation Add-on.
The maximum MiniJib payload:
- 7kg (15.4lbs) for motorized operation – MiniJib w/ one OmniHead
- 4.1kg (9lbs) for MiniJib w/ two OmniHeads
- 15kg (33lbs) for manual operation – MiniJib w/ Manual Operation Add-On
The maximum counterweight is 15kg (33lbs) and does not decrease the maximum payload above.
By default DitoGear™ MiniJib comes prepared for mounting on the DitoGear™ OmniHead.
Thanks to DitoGear™ MiniJib Manual Operation Add-on it is also possible to use the MiniJib manually, without the OmniHead. In such configuration it can be mounted on a tripod, 3rd-party slider, dolly or other supports.
DitoGear™ MiniJib is fully usable for time-lapse cinematography and stop-motion animation. You simply control it the same way as you do with other DitoGear™ devices. Real-time motorized operation is also possible at slow speeds, but due to inertia issues it is not recommended by DitoGear™.
As every other DitoGear™ motion control device, MiniJib can be used with any of our motion controllers, ranging from battlefield-tested OmniController to state-of-the art multiaxis wireless Evolution.
Controllers designed specifically to control DitoGear™ devices in real-time mode are suitable for the MiniJib, nevertheless due to stability issues it is not recommended by DitoGear™.
