The Porta-Jib Traveller is designed for videographers and 16mm cinematographers who need to travel light. Weighing only 29 lbs. (13.2kg), it supports 40 lbs. (18kg) of camera and fluid head. So compact, it folds up with no loose parts and fits into a baby tripod case. Its unique telescopic design allows it to work in constricted areas and also unfold to create a dramatic 6 foot lift. And best of all, it uses the 100mm style tripod and head you already own.
Like the rest of the Losmandy line, it is manufactured to the highest quality standards: all parts are anodized black machined aluminum or stainless steel. All moving parts are controlled by sealed precision ball bearings. Bubble levels are located on the centre column and camera plate for easy levelling. With a weight ratio of less than one-to-one, and the sliding counterweight shaft for fine tuning, the arm can be balanced in a matter of seconds, with a limited number of counter weights. Since no chains, belts or cables are used, the Losmandy Porta-Jib Traveller requires little maintenance. Boom friction and pan friction with variable drag are standard features.
