A Jib my dad and I built. About 200$. GL-2 and small Sony Handy Cam. Final Cut Express. No I do not have the blue prints, sorry. Thanks, any question feel free to ask.

    No lie, this is a fantastic piece of equipment that seems to way outperform similar commercial version going for $1000+. Do you realize how much extra income you could be making if you could get some blueprints of how to construct this out for sale?

    I seriously need one of these. Tilt and rotation controls on yours are perfect. Is there any way you can make an instructional video on how to make it? and the supplies needed, cause it would really help out a fellow youtuber. Please respond if you can.

    Awesome work! I’ve never seen one that had tilt and rotate controls. I’m so impressed, now I want to make one myself.

    @arijunal No with my dad, actually he does most the work, but i’ve never claimed to do all the work I just make the vids and use it so its okay, plus i help him in the shop when i can.

    Hi,

    I am trying to build my own jib, and I really liked the idea of using a bike handle for the y-axis movement. I would greatly appreciate any advice you can give me on creating such a design.

    I really want a camera jib, but I find it a bit pointless as I don’t think I can have a monitor linked up to my camera. It’s a Panasonic SDR- S26. I don’t think any monitor can link up to it though :(

    Very nice, where did you git the gizmo to tilt the camera up and down?

    The new Jib is complete, it’s assembly takes less than 10 minutes, 5 if your good, its sturdy, longer, and MOTORIZED PAN and TILT, I’ll be posting the video within the next 2 weeks, and the best part YOU CAN PURCHASE ONE!!!

    this proves the fact that with the right equipment, not only grownups can make cool things. I’m trying to make one of these myself, and I have no ideo how. This is way out of my league and you are way younger than me, too!. Great job man, you inspire me!

    wow… my husband could probably take a few looks at yours & figure out how to do it & make me one too… I love mechanically inclined people =) hehe
    great job… looks like it works great. Love the “servo” to tilt & pan the camera itself in it’s little “cradle”
