Wt. 29 lbs. (13.2kg) 

Designed for videographers and 16mm cinematographers who need to travel light. Weighing only 29 lbs. (13.2kg), it supports 40 lbs. (18kg) of camera and fluid head. So compact, it folds up with no loose parts and fits into a baby tripod case. Its unique telescopic design allows it to work in constricted areas and also unfold to create a dramatic 6 foot lift. And best of all, it uses the 100mm style tripod and head you already own. Like the rest of the Losmandy line, it is manufactured to the highest quality standards: all parts are anodized black machined aluminum or stainless steel. All moving parts are controlled by sealed precision ball bearings. Bubble levels are located on the center column and camera plate for easy levelling. With a weight ratio of less than one-to-one, and the sliding counterweight shaft for fine tuning, the arm can be balanced in a matter of seconds, with a limited number of counter weights. Since no chains, belts or cables are used, the Losmandy Porta-Jib Traveller requires little maintenance. Boom friction and pan friction with variable drag are standard features. Base price includes Vector Balancing Bar and 35 lbs. (16kg) of counter weights. includes Fine Tuning Weight and Vector Bar.

Note: 100mm tripod systems may not be designed for the additional payload of the jib, and counterweights. Leg locks, in particular, may be inadequate to support this additional weight. Put legs in their most collapsed position to avoid stressing the locks. If using tripod legs mounted on a 3-wheel dolly, be careful to always push in the direction of an opposing leg to avoid tipping the system.

Optional Accessory (select when ordering)


Balanced Monitor Bracket - for front-operated jib work      

Balanced Monitor Bracket

Now 8 inch (or smaller) monitors can be used as an easy-to-view on-camera display for jib work. As you boom the camera up and down, this new bracket's handle allows you to have your left hand controlling the angle of the monitor at all times, and  because it is balanced, whenever you let go of the handle, the monitor will remain in that angle. So, for example, as the camera is boomed upward, above your head, you can flip the monitor, as you let go with your left hand, into a downward angle that will be easy to see, confident that the monitor will retain its desired angle for viewing.

The bracket assembly mounts between your camera's base and the fluid head's balance plate, and comes with its own balance plate assembly to mount to your camera. This bracket allows you to move the monitor for and aft, as well as up and down to obtain nodal point balance. It then has a drag adjustment that allows it to move smoothly to keep it from being completely free-wheeling.
