Superjib Arm/Camera Crane Extention

Modifying the "Super" Jib Arm to make it REALLY SUPER

I purchased a Studio 1 Superjob Arm (camera crane) for those wonderful sweeping vista shots that you see so often in big productions.

As originally configured, the Superjib does an okay job of this- but the arm only adds in actuality literally 4'4" of crane extension, from the point where the camera would be normally mounted on the tripod, to where it is extended with the jib arm. This is measured with a tape measure, though it kind of looks further on their web page photos. The photos are a bit misleading.

I invented a way to EXTEND the crane arm an additional four feet to 8'8", and it works REALLY SUPER now.

Please see the how-to instructions with photos at

Have Fun!
