Hi All:
Anyone using a jib with the 5D? If so which ones and what types of accesories?
Thanks Roy

I'd just google around a bit- I've seen a lot of cool stuff from companies like Kessler, Varizoom and the like. Really depends what you expect from a jib, how portable you want it and your budget.

Hi Roy

I have been looking for small jibs lately as well.
however my budget will not allow for the really nice Kessler Jibs Noah mentioned.
i may however be purchasing one of the smaller jibs from cinecity

they are definitely not made as well and may not handle heavier cams but i was quite surprised that you do get a motorized pan and tilt head with it for about $1000

the other option I was looking at was from Hague

but you only get a tilt motion from that, if im not mistaken, for about £370

like Noah said "Really depends what you expect from a jib, how portable you want it and your budget"

hope that helps?

We shopped jibs for our Canon 5DmkII package for awhile and we recently purchased the EZ Jib from We bought it with the extension kit, which I highly recommend. It provides plenty of height, the build quality is good and it's a piece of cake to assemble. We also got great service when we called with questions before purchase. We'll be adding the wheels to it soon to make it easier to move after it's set up.
