There are three possible configurations to use 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. MiniJib can also be mounted on sliders, dollies and other supports providing a 3/8″ threaded mount. Installing MiniJib on a single footprint DitoGear™ OmniSlider can cause some inertia issues so it’s not recommended by DitoGear. We recommend using Motorized MiniJib with DitoGear™ T’rantula HD.
MiniJib default mounting option gives the possibility to mount MiniJib directly on the OmniHead Unit or the Manual Operation Add-on.
By default MiniJib comes prepared for mounting on the DitoGear™ OmniHead.
Thanks to 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.
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 MiniJib, nevertheless due to stability issues it is not recommended by DitoGear™.
