The Hague Mini Jib Traveller K3 is small, compact, lightweight and easy to take anywhere. Measuring just 82cm for transit, and weighing just 2kg, this jib is ideal for people on the go. It’s ideal for both DSLRs and all handheld camcorders under 3kg, or could be used with action cameras such as the GoPro for an even more lightweight set-up. The Mini Jib Traveller is fastened directly to the video head of any sturdy tripod, in the same way you would attach your camera. It can be mounted using both 1/4” and 3/8” screws.
On the end of the jib is a camera plate mounted on a pulley with a control cable coming down the jib to a second pulley at the side of the video head on the tripod. It is this control cable that keeps the camera level as the jib is raised or lowered. Tilting the tripod’s video head controls the camera pulley on the end of the jib, enabling the camera to be tilted up or down. The radial ball bearings in the pulley ensure a very smooth tilt movement. The jib has a telescopic weight bar which can be adjusted to counterbalance the camera with standard bar weights (not supplied) or a sandbag used for counterbalance.
An additional feature of the Mini Jib Traveller is the ability to mount the jib horizontally so you can create sideways tracking movement, similar to a slider, or the camera can be positioned to move forward or back. Combine this with using the pan bar on the video head and some very unusual shots can be achieved.

This jib is everything I wanted as I go trekking and needed it to be lightweight. Just use sandbags for counterbalce and fill them up with stones or dirt when i need to use them. Its really light which is so important for me but still very strong and is made of aluminum i think.
