Boom, Swing, Tilt and optional Pan

The CobraCrane 1 camera jib can boom as low as ground level and as high as 4 meters with the CobraCrane 1PLUS camera jib. The CobraCrane 1X camera jib can reach 3.38 meters and the CobraCrane 1 camera jib (cc1) can reach 2.46 meters on a 5 foot tripod. So you can easily see over the fence or over the tree. All CobraCrane camera jibs can swing a full 360 degrees, so you can shoot magnificent panoramas, dramatic openings, and suspenseful swings. With the optional cable operated Panhead, you can reposition the camera 90 degrees left and right of center.

Smooth as silk Manual and Static Tilt.

Along with static tilting where the camera can always be set vertically (or any other angle) all CobraCrane 1 camera jib systems can manually tilt the camera up to 60 degrees back and 90 degrees forward. The tilt is controlled by the tilt handle and benefits from the drag and dampening of the existing fluid head. Since the tilt is completely dampened or dragged from your head, you get a nice smooth tilt exactly like you were tilting on your fluid head tripod. This is one of the main benefits over systems with handle / rod controlled tilting systems. When mounting your camera 90 degrees off center, cool dutch rolls can be achieved.

Accessories to enhance your work

All CobraCrane 1 camera jib systems are compatible with our lightweight cable operated PanHead systems that can quickly and easily reposition the camera in a panning motion 180 degrees. (90 degrees left and right of center). A variety of monitoring options are available as well as LANC controllers. We offer a neat tracking dolly to add the next dimension of cinematography to your crane. Swapping cameras amongst CobraCrane camera jibs and SteadyTrackers is easy with our 577 / 501 compatible quick release plate kits.

The CobraCrane 1 camera jib is our standard single bar crane. With the ability to boom a camera weighing up to 3 kilograms (6.5 pounds), the CobraCrane 1 camera jib can reach up to 244cm (8 feet) above the ground (on a 150cm / 5 foot Tripod) and can go as low as ground level, offering incredible performance at a very competitive price. This kit includes a 3 foot extension piece. 

The CobraCrane 1 camera jib can be extended 91cm (3 feet) with the included extension kits; which includes everything you need so you would have both a 5 foot (152cm) and a 8 foot (244cm) crane. The CobraCrane 1 camera jib has three inherent functions. They can boom your camera from the ground up to the maximum height of your crane tripod combination. CobraCrane camera jibs can smoothly swing the camera from the pan function of your tripod's fluid head and they can tilt the camera from any position within their swing or height arc. By taking advantage of any combination of those moves, CobraCrane camera jibs can significantly enhance the quality of your work, and exponentially raise the value of your presentation, thus creating greater earning potential. You will be able to create sweeping, captivating Hollywood moves without breaking the bank.
