Edelkrone has announced the second version of their popular JibONE motorized jib, with some great new features. With new features including a longer Bluetooth wireless range, faster camera travel, and a nice OLED screen, the JibONE v. 2 is bound to motivate users to list their original models on eBay in order to buy one.
With improved power management and a physical on/off button, the second-gen JibONE also gives users greater control over battery life and how to extend use between battery changes. The JibONE can also now be controlled from an updated iOS and Android app, or through a wired LinkPort connection.
Fully adjustable, the JibONE track can be set for travel on vertical, horizontal, and diagonal paths. Users can even set along multiple angles in order to skew the path along non-traditional paths. The JibONE can also be programmed for complex motion control and time-lapses.
Moreover, when coupled with edelkrone HeadONE, HeadPLUS v2, and Pan PRO motorized pan/tilt heads, the JibONE offers simultaneous, motion-controlled movement along multiple axes. Users can pan and tilt at the same time, or move along any available axis while moving the camera up and down, which makes for an even more interesting image.
