The Jib's telescopic arm can be used both outdoor and indoor, even when we want to film on a small boat without adding excessive weight on the boat. The SWIFT JIB50 KIT allows us to distribute the camera support's weight on the shore to produce pro crane movements over the boat resulting in quality filmmaking.
