The K12 Multi Jib camera crane is designed by Hague Camera Supports and can be set-up at three different lengths to offer great flexibility. At its shortest length it is small and compact but at its longest length it will travel from ground level to nearly 4m in height. Designed so it can be used at the camera end or from the back of the crane it allows you to achieve the hands on feel of working at the camera end or to attach a motorised pan and tilt powerhead if you want to operate from the back. This camera jib supports up to 14kg and is one of the top jib systems within the Hague Camera Supports range.
HAGUE CAMERA SUPPORTS PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Hague K12 Multi Jib fastens to any sturdy tripod with a 100 or 75mm bowl or onto a Hague D3 Dolly. It is quick and simple to set up and can be used at three different lengths. At it's standard or short length it will support up to 14kg and at it's longest length will support up to 9kg. A 100mm bowl enables you to fasten your video head from your tripod onto the jib, (an optional Stepper Ring is available if you are on the 75mm bowl system) or a pan & tilt power head can be used for remote operation. Radial ball bearings ensure super smooth crane movement from ground level to almost 4 metres high and pan 360 degrees. Drag can be added to hold the arm at a set position. Standard bar weights or sand bags can be used as counterbalance.
The Multi Jib breaks down to just 1.2 metres in length making it very easy to handle and for transport. It is suitable for all handheld cameras and will support a maximum weight of 14kg.
An optional video head, or remote pan & tilt power head, can be fitted to the jib and a monitor bracket is also available making it easier to monitor your shots.

I believe the K12 is the sturdiest and most solid jib produced in the UK currently. I film with mine freelance at least three to four times a week and the K12 has proved itself over and over. It's smooth, with no wobble, it's well made and easy to assemble. Paired with my Kessler Revolution head, it's an unbeatable combination.
Good product but it's a shame to receive it a little damaged due to a packaging that is too fragile. Very improved.
Got to say I really like the K12 jib. Its dead easy to set-up and being able to use at three different lengths gives me great flexibility. I like to be hands on at the camera end when in tighter set-up but then use it with the PH200 when at a longer length. The D3 is a great extra for the longer set-up but use my tripod legs if in the smaller set-up as it gets me tighter to the ground. Got the CT49 bag too which is great and if you fold the sections back on themselves you dont have to dismantle anything.
I've used the Hague K12 Multi-jib on a few shoots now and It has performed faultlessly. The build quality is good and set-up time isn't too long. It does have to be completely dismantled to fit in the CT46 padded case however which adds to set-up and strike times. The jib handles the Sony FS7 and Canon Cine Prime lens well, however I haven't used the jib at full extension with this camera. Balancing and operation were easy, a heavy-duty, solid tripod is essential for stability.
