The lightweight Porta-Jib Traveler by Losmandy is designed for those who need to travel light. Its unique telescopic design allows it to work in constricted areas to create dramatic shots with 6 feet of lift. And best of all, it weighs only 29 pounds, yet supports up to 40 pounds of equipment and uses an industry-standard 100mm tripod and head.
With a weight ratio of less than one-to-one, and a sliding counterweight shaft for fine tuning, the arm can be balanced in seconds, with a limited number of counter weights. Since no chains, belts or cables are used, the Losmandy Porta-Jib Traveler requires little maintenance. Boom and pan friction, with variable drag, are also standard features.
The Traveler folds easily without tools, and compacts down to 31 inches. In fact, the unit is so compact, it can fold up with no loose parts and fit into a baby tripod case.
