Hay una empresa que hace estas cosas en España, pero no recuerdo el nombre!

There should be a spanish company that makes video cranes, unfortunately I don't remember the name... :-(

I've used the Hague Multi-jib with an Z1. It's good in that it can be configured for three different lengths - and is very well made.
It won't break the bank either...

Kessler

I use a Kessler and swear by it! It is a fast setup and extremely stable and I fly internationally with it all the time and have no problems. Travels like golf clubs.

Kessler 8/12

I have a Kessler 8/12 model with a PT 20 head and all the options for fast assembly. I use their older model fluid head and a Manfrotto 528XB tripod and Manfrotto wheels/dolly.
I have the ball relocater option for front end work and use a Manfrotto 116 head or the 75mm bowl adapter and one of my Sachtler heads.
I hope to get their 16 foot extension as soon as it is released and I hope they continue to develop the Pocket Jib as well.
