While I wait for delivery of a scarlet, I am keeping busy getting all the gear together for it.
As I can not hire Jibs or dollys where I live, I am wondering what is the best Jib for a scarlet.
So far, my list looks something like this :-
1. http://www.kesslercrane.com/product-p/100016.htm ( about $500 ) which seems to be popular here.
2. http://www.porta-jib.com/explorer.html ( about $1,800 ) which looks strong and has a nice web site and videos.
3. http://www.varizoom.com/product.aspx...gory=QuickJibs ( about $1,200 ) and also seems strong from their pics.
4. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/PROAIM-12...ht_8238wt_1156 for about $350, which is probably the cheapest.
Seems to me underslung is the most versatile on these Jobs, but I just wonder how smooth I can get the start and stop of any movement with such light weight jibs.
Of course I can always edit out the start and stop frames if they are bumpy, but I like the idea of being able to stay with the subject before or after a move.
Thanks for any good ideas on this.
