Jib with EX1 and Mattebox question....

Looking at getting the Philip Bloom's recommended Kessler Pocket Jib "Traveller". I know this works with most DSLRs, but has anyone here ever used it with an EX1? I know the "10 pound" weight capacity should be ok, but then again, weight of the EX1 camera, then adding batteries, etc... Not so sure. The Kessler add here show a fairly large Panasonic camera

Also, looking at getting the "Proaims Matte-box MB-600 & RC-1 Rail system", any comments on using this product for the EX1?

I think if you get the Camera Platform Extender you'll be more happy with using it with the EX line of cameras, but it still may not be enough jib. You always should consider getting something more than you think you need. We bought an EZJib from EZFX for use inside and I love it. It's bigger, but folds up, handles the camera's weight and the counterweight with no problems, is durable and the powder coat finish is equally durable. One-man operation is a breeze, and I'm not just saying that. It has completely replaced our larger Jony Jib.

Weigh your camera. It should be fine.
