Pro Am Crane

Anyone have any experience with the Pro Am line of cranes/ jibs? Particularly the 12 footer? Is it stable? Fluid?

Re: Pro Am Crane

Hey Dave,

I own the 14ft ProAim Jib. For the price, I really like it. I have gotten a lot of really cool shots. There are a few limitations with it, such as it can not look straight down when the jib is all the way up because of the way the tilt mechanism works.

Please take a look at this link to my website, all the jib shots under Music Video, Live Event Production and Narrative are shot with the ProAim jib.

All and all, I really like it. I would recommend purchasing a quick release plate from manfrotto...

Let me know if you take the plunge and purchase it.
