The Aviator Travel Jib gives you smoother videos

The Aviator Travel Jib lets budget videographers capture videos with smooth, cinematic panning at a fraction of the price of professional systems.

A jib is also known as a camera crane, and is typically used in movie productions to get a sense of the scene, usually with the camera panning or zooming from a higher vantage point.

Weighing only 1.7kg, the camera crane is able to extend up to 1.83m, and should be able to carry your SLR and a kit lens (the accessory can support cameras of up to 2.7kg). When not in use, it can be folded down to 0.6m for portability.

The Aviator kit includes a fluid pan base, a high-quality padded bag, mounting hardware, bubble levels, mounting ports and a ballast bag. Slated to ship in August, the Aviator Travel Jib can be yours for a pledge of US$399 on Kickstarter. There's also a carbon-fibre version going for US$799, if you're willing to splurge on an even lighter alternative.
