The DitoGear™ MiniJib is available in two different lengths: 1.0m and 1.5m.
The maximum MiniJib payload is 7kg (15.4lbs) for motorized operation and 15kg (33lbs) for manual operation.
The maximum counterweight is 15kg (33lbs) and does not decrease the maximum payload above.
By default DitoGear™ MiniJib comes prepared for mounting on the DitoGear™ OmniHead.
Thanks to DitoGear™ MiniJib Manual Operation Add-on it is also possible to use the MiniJib manually, without the OmniHead. In such configuration it can be mounted on a tripod, 3rd-party slider, dolly or other supports.
Timelapse, stop-motion operation
DitoGear™ MiniJib is fully usable for time-lapse cinematography and stop-motion animation. You simply control it the same way as you do with other DitoGear™ devices. Real-time motorized operation is also possible at slow speeds, but due to inertia issues it is not recommended by DitoGear™.
DitoGear™ Evolution software compatibility
With DitoGear™ Evolution – a multi-axis keyframe-based motion control software this unit will be another block contributing to enormous creative possibilities of your multi-axis DitoGear™ motion control rig.
DragonFrame and DMC-16 compatibility
Unleash the power of motion control for stop motion work with DitoGear™ DragonBridge & Dragonframe motion control software integration or use DitoGear™ DMC-16 Adapter & Dragonframe DMC-16 to operate in live action, timelapse and motion control modes.
So many new possibilities!
There are three possible configurations to use the MiniJib. You can use one or two DitoGear™ OmniHead Units to create a motorized jib or choose the unmotorized, manual option to increase the payload and operate it the traditional way. DitoGear™ MiniJib can also be mounted on sliders, dollies and other supports providing a 3/8″ threaded mount. Installing the Mini Jib on a single footprint DitoGear™ OmniSlider can cause some inertia issues so it’s not recommended by DitoGear™.
MiniJib default mounting option gives the possibility to mount the MiniJib directly on the OmniHead Unit or the Manual Operation Add-on.
As every other DitoGear™ motion control device, MiniJib can be used with any of our motion controllers, ranging from battlefield-tested OmniController to state-of-the art multiaxis wireless Evolution.
Controllers designed specifically to control DitoGear™ devices in real-time mode are suitable for the MiniJib, nevertheless due to stability issues it is not recommended by DitoGear™.
