Have not seen or used one. According to the description, you can mount a "Broadcast" camera on it. Typically that refers to Beta etc. that can weigh 20-30 Lbs. If you did, you'll need a TON (maybe literally) to balance that thing.

That doesn't seem like a bad price considering it's double the length and stronger than that of most jibs in its class (without remote heads) and can fly larger camera systems. Just put a remote head on it and it will be on it's way. I would be very interested to know just which national shows that it has been used on.

more detail here http://www.nuangle.com/nc1500.htm
from all the pics, the jib look a bit bend. do you think it can carry such heavy load?

this should be a good consideration too http://www.jonyjib.com/jonyjib.htm#JonyJib_18

That's just it, I hear about a lot of bending with these smaller rigs. It does seem that the lower arm would have to help though.

very few jib of such lenght are design without the use of "cantilever". one such jib which i have the opportunity to use is the cammate travel series. it is very smooth and does not wobble at the end of the shoot. the construction is a big though.

You ain't kidding about the NC 1500 looking like it's bending. That is not good. I hope the maker and end user have plenty of insurance.

Struts and cables would be a remedy for any vertical bending and/or horizontal swaying. That's what reinforces my 18ft jib. The additional pictures near the bottom of the jonyjib show it using a strut and cable configuration too.

The lower tie rod is mostly for allowing the head plate to maintain a horizontal position at any height even while in motion. When you exceed a certain length, you really need some more support like struts and cables.
