Unlike sliders and conventional jibs, the Spyder Jib allows you to move the camera in any direction you desire. Its drive system not only keeps the head level but also ensures that the counterweights are always in position to balance the entire rig, regardless of camera position.
The camera can move in an arc, a straight line, or any combination, and change direction at any point.
The Spyder Jib is also ultra portable, with it's pin locked folded position.
A 75mm invertible bowl for compact fluid heads is standard.
Maximum weight capacity of camera, camera accessories, and fluid head is 15 pounds, perfect for the new generation of compact, large sensor digital cinema cameras.
Long Valley Equipment will also be offering the pan-tilt gimbal head shown in the video, which allows for unprecedented camera movement. This head works great in underslung mode and allows the camera to be balanced at its center of gravity.
The Spyder Jib is now in prototype phase. Please check back for further developments.
Projected msrp of the Spyder jib is $2,995 subject to change.
The modified motion head msrp is $595 also subject to change.
