There are three possible configurations to use the MiniJib. You can use one or two DitoGear™ OmniHead Units to create a motorized jib or choose the unmotorized, manual option to increase the payload and operate it the traditional way. DitoGear™ MiniJib can also be mounted on sliders, dollies and other supports providing a 3/8″ threaded mount. Installing the MiniJib on a single footprint DitoGear™ OmniSlider can cause some inertia issues so it’s not recommended by DitoGear™. We recommend using Motorized MiniJib with DitoGear™ T’rantula GO or T’rantula HD.
MiniJib default mounting option gives the possibility to mount the MiniJib directly on the OmniHead Unit or the Manual Operation Add-on.
By default DitoGear™ MiniJib comes prepared for mounting on the DitoGear™ OmniHead.
Thanks to DitoGear MiniJib Manual Operation Add-on it is also possible to use the MiniJib manually, without the OmniHead. In such configuration it can be mounted on a tripod, 3rd-party slider, dolly or other supports.
As every other DitoGear™ motion control device, MiniJib can be used with any of our motion controllers, ranging from battlefield-tested OmniController to state-of-the art multiaxis wireless Evolution.
Controllers designed specifically to control DitoGear™ devices in real-time mode are suitable for the MiniJib, nevertheless due to stability issues it is not recommended by DitoGear™.
With DitoGear™ Evolution – a multi-axis keyframe-based motion control software this unit will be another block contributing to enormous creative possibilities of your multi-axis DitoGear™ motion control rig.
