HAGUE CAMERA SUPPORTS PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Hague K2 Junior Jib is a lightweight camera crane which is quick and easy to set up. It fastens directly to the head of any sturdy tripod and is suitable for camera set-ups that weigh up to 3kg. With a smooth camera tilt control you can achieve stunning shots with ease.
The camera attaches directly to the jib arm's camera plate and is secured with the thumb screw supplied. There is an attachable counterbalance arm, with adjustable fine trim weight, and you just need to add standard bar weights (not supplied) to the weight plate at the back to counterbalance.
The jib has a variable tilt control with lock, which enables you to tilt the camera 90 degrees and the camera can be set in any position, so you can have the camera pointing directly downwards or upwards creating some very unusual shots.
The new design has a much greater vertical crane movement, which means the camera can go from ground level to over 7ft.6" (2.3m) high and you can pan the jib arm 360 degrees. There is also a jib lock, should you require to leave the camera at a set height.
The K2 Junior Jib attaches directly to the tripod camera plate and can be secured with both the standard 1/4" and 3/8" screws that come supplied with tripod plates.
The Hague Junior Jib can be set up with the camera mounted on either side for left or right hand control and this is also helpful if using a camera with a flip out screen. The user can then monitor the shots either via the camera screen or from an external monitor or tablet with mounting brackets available as optional extras for both scenarios.

The product arrived a day later than I was told, by UK mail, and seemed well protected by the packaging but arrived missing a screw for the tilt handle attachment and the plastic knob, used to tighten the jib on its vertical axis, was bashed and broken in half as soon as i took it out the box. I'm really pleased with the shots I'm getting with the crane but disappointed with the broken part and missing screws- due to the price I paid for the product.
Satisfying jib that does its job!!! Love it. It was shipped to me by DHL which by the way made an amazing job. Though one of the handles broke a little i still love and can live with it!!!!!!!!
Thanks for the quick delivery, jib and bag ideal and already getting plenty of use.
Just a great jib at a great price. I have used other brands before but heard Hague stuff was well made and it really is. Solid, easy to use and better than the others I have used.
I purchased the Junior Jib and the bag as I wanted to add a little bit of extra movement to the wedding videos I produce. I was considering the K8 Boom but it seemed bigger than I needed so I went for the Junior instead. I am very happy with it too as its easy to set-up quickly which is important at weddings. I was surprised how much movement I can get with it and how easy it is to use. I also got the bag which is great except it doesn't have any padding. Its ideal for me just taking it to weddings but I wouldn't want to put it on a plane. Either way for £20 its not bad at all. Customer service when ordering was very helpful in advising me of the difference between the two jibs and then it arrived the next day.
Arrived damaged. Requested replacement part. Never arrived. Cable needs tightening. Feeling that spring isn't meaty enough. Reasonable price and does produce results with practice. Cameragrip Response: We are sorry to hear that your Junior Jib has been damaged in transit and can certainly send a replacement part to you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number explaining which bit has been damaged and we will get that rectified for you. The Junior Jib is suitable for cameras up to 3kg in weight so as long you are within the recommended weight range the spring should be fine.
