Reviews

Fantastic Jib!!!!Review by Patrick Jesseman
Overall
For my dollar, nothing compares with Kessler! Incredibly stable and no unwanted movement or swaying found in other systems. Heavy Duty and looks really nice on set! Compacts down really well for transport but extends pretty impressively! All around a GREAT piece of equipment!
owned for over 2 yearsReview by Jeremiah Scott

I love this thing. I bought one over 2 years ago with the Cineslider and I couldn't be happier. I take it on most of my shoots. I bought wheels for the legs and they never come off. Makes things quick and easy. Impresses my clients. I would definitely buy again.
Excellent gearReview by Vigil Bose

This is one of the excellent gears we invested wisely for our film work. We are new into films and we want to start humbly but in style and this gear helps bring the professional touch to our films.
Exactly what I needed!Review by Nathan Lehner
Overall
I looked a quite a few jibs, some less expensive, some more expensive. For my 5D MkII and Ex1 this seemed to fit the bill perfectly. After talking about an hour to set up and play with in my house, I can now have the jib set up from the box balanced and shooting in 5 minutes. All around very smooth motion and fantastic build construction. Perfect for me to use on a one person shoot. At full extension with my ex1 you can get a little lateral wobble if you are not careful but only for very aggressive motion. I'm sure glad I didn't go with a lesser quality or lighter duty jib. After owning one month, I can't imagine not shooting with this!!! My productions instantly took a giant leap forward!
Fast setup, beautiful resultsReview by David McQuinn
Overall
Okay, after watching the setup video I was concerned that it would take me 15-20 minutes to set up. I have just had it a short time and it took me 6 minutes to switch from shooting on my tripod to setting up the Pocket Jib in place of the regular head. The same time or less to take down.

The important characteristic is the smooth movement in every direction. My productions now have seamless jib moves. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to stop the camera smoothly without having to create a freeze frame at the stop point. I don't know what they've done, but the mechanism just works like it should. I am thrilled, and so are my clients. I would highly recommend this tool.
