Built-in adjustable dampening provides the fluid head feel to which most accomplished camera operators have become accustomed. This feature sets the Aerocrane Jib apart, allowing the operator to go beyond the restrictions of conventional camera support systems.
In addition, Aerocrane’s heavy duty four-way leveling head provides an extremely stable platform, which compensates up to 5 degrees. Two regular-sized shipping cases house the Aerocrane Jib Arm in its basic configuration (excluding the counterweights), which allows you to build an arm reach from 3’ (0.92m) to 5’ (1.53m). The additional remote head package increases the arm reach to 9’ (2.74m). The Aerocrane sealed lead counterweights, combined with a sliding weight, allow the operator to attain the perfect balance with any camera package, at any length.
The Aerocrane Jib Arm also features a fully adjustable front camera bracket, as well as a choice of Mitchell or 150 mm Sachtlerbowl offset arm, which allow for a maximum travel of 9'8" (2.94m).
Versatility and flexibility are the trademarks of the Aerocrane Jib Arm. The Aerocrane has given countless professionals more freedom of choice to create those “special shots” ,without the compromises imposed by competing jib arms. When mounted on a dolly, the stable and smooth Aerocrane Jib Arm easily delivers compound moves with minimal time and effort.
The AeroJib is the Aerocrane – our flagship product, which gave the company its name. Historically, we also made the 30’ Super Aerocrane, briefly the 35’ Super Aerocrane, and more recently the Super Jib (which can still be seen on our website). During this period, we began referring to the Aerocrane as the AeroJib to avoid confusion. We stopped making the 30-35 foot crane 20 years ago with the advent of the telescopic cranes on the market. The SuperJib is not currently in production, although a one-off could be produced at great cost to the customer.
