Announcing New Axis Jib and Launch Video

The Axis Jib is the ideal tool for industry professionals looking for a jib they can rapidly deploy and operate in minutes. The single tube design not only eliminates pinch points during setup and use but also makes for an incredibly strong and rock-solid support. This stiffness lends to the Axis’ ability to comfortably hold 50 lbs, covering anything from the 5D Mk III all the way up to a fully-loaded Arri Alexa. Even with a heavy payload the Jib’s movement is smooth and consistent. Furthermore, the Axis aids in repeatability with its pan and tilt dry-erase marker rings. The unit itself drops into any 100mm tripod while the front end accepts 100mm tripod heads. The Axis Jib’s 100mm bowl indexes at 90 degree allowing you to mount your tripod head at various angles to gain unique perspectives. The centre yolk of the unit holds the pan and tilt locks as well as a variety of cheese holes for mounting accessories. The back end of the Jib features a handle to accept common weight sizes as well as a 2 lb trim weight which easily slides along the Jib tube for fine-tuning of the balance. These time saving features, along with its maintenance free operation and use, make the Axis Jib a must have for any serious filmmaker.

The Axis Jib is now available on Cinevate.com and at various resellers for $2,299. The first run of Axis is available in limited quantities so interested shooters should act fast. New orders will begin shipping January 14th, 2013.
