Deciding which film gear to travel with can feel a lot like trying to decide which family member to leave behind – an often impossible decision to make. Whether you are going overseas or trekking into a local wildlife park, without a multi-person crew you’ll have no choice but to limit yourself and perhaps sacrifice that one perfect shot. Camera cranes are one of those unique pieces of equipment that can turn an okay video into a great one.

The high-reaching arm lets you capture dynamic and captivating shots. However, even the smallest crane models make filmmakers think twice before transporting them to a location, especially if that location involves taking gear on a plane. The CarryOn Jib changes that. It enables filmmakers to get gorgeous shots just like our other models, but in a form that is so small you wouldn’t have to think twice about taking it with you.

Shown in 6 foot mode The CarryOn Jib is the smallest and lightest crane of its kind supporting loads up to 10 pounds. It expands from a 4 foot mini-jib into a full 6 feet in length and can collapse into an unbelievable 22 inches, fitting into an airline approved carry on size bag, or easily in your checked luggage. The extension option brings the total length to an impressive 8 feet. The package is only 10 pounds, making it possible to take anywhere you and your camera go.
