I bought this on Ebay through The Film Department.I needed a jib quickly for a job and bought with the intension of reselling after use. However this kit is now a vital part of my mobile equipment.It compares very favorably with the pro kit I used every day at Granada and has all the neccessary functionality.
Its incredibly rigid and doesnt exhibit any sway or twist in the beam Not something that you can say about other jibs I have used.
Once balanced it responds with a feather light touch and can be locked at any elevation quickly and easily.
It is easy to set up and take down and all in all is a very well built piece of kit.
The stand is a little more complicated in assembly but not difficult. It just takes a bit more time. However once fastened up it becomes a very strong and stable support
All in all for the money [£650] it is incredible value. I always feel confident in its ability to safely support my expensive cameras and its smooth action leads to smooth shooting.
After sales service from The Film department was great. On location in Norway we lost one of the stand feet. We texted Robens AV and they got one out to us by UPS that same day all for the actual cost of courier shipping. Superb service
