Experimenting with the Jib

Over the last couple of days I’ve been working on a Jib which is a device for a camera that helps achieve high angled or low angled sweeping shots. Below is a preview of some of the shots I filmed using the Jib and also my Dolly. Everything was shot on my Canon 550d (will post more info on dolly and camera in a future blog). The jib is still in its early days of development, however it’s still cool to see what you can do with something as simple as this. Check out the results:
