Lightweight and portable Albatros Video Jib.


Albatros is lightweight and mobile JIB designed for Video DSLRs or camcorder with weight up to 3 kg. With maximum reach of 2.8 meters it allows you to capture images from unusual angle and enrich your production with extraordinary dynamism.

Mounting platform is suitable for any video or photo head. Cameraman may use the Jib in two ways: operating a recording device directly or using Jibs to levers.


Characteristic double arm system allows fine balancing of mounting platform and keeps it position independently from JIbs tilting. Two lock mechanisms let you control tilting of mounting platform and Jibs arm separately. In contrast to conventional technologies we've used 17 ball bearings. Owing to that Albatros works smoothly and quietly.

Compact design makes folded Albatros is only 1.2 meters long and weights 4 kg. Which means that our Jib is convenient in transport and will easily fit any car. Deploying hardened, anodized aluminum guarantees our product durability, while powder coating let it keep original appearance for a long time.
Owing to those advantages, we've decided to extend standard warranty period to three years!

Our Jib is deployed with two bubble spirit levels – one in mounting platform and other in part connected to tripod, which allows precise setup. Included velcro loops help with cable management, protecting camera or camcorder sockets from accidental damage.

Albatros is supplied with LCD monitor holder and set of counterbalance weights (10 kg). We also provide sturdy, padded cover made of Kodura®-like fabric - for easy and secure transportation.
