Edelkrone has launched a new app-controlled jib called JibONE that can be used with the HeadONE and HeadPLUS motorized heads for capturing a variety of shots. The jib supports 50cm (19.6in) of horizontal, vertical and diagonal motion in any direction, including looping motion. Despite its capabilities, Edelkrone says the model is compact enough to store in a backpack.
The JibONE is made from CNC machined aluminum and stainless steel; it measures 61 x 17 x 15cm (24 x 6.7 x 5.9in) when folded and weighs 5.5kg (12lbs) when used with the 1kg (2.2lbs) counterweight. Edelkrone recommends that users keep their setup load to less than 5kg (11lbs). The company says that all DSLR models are compatible with the JibONE.

Operators have two different battery options to choose from for powering the JibONE: LP-E6 and NP-F batteries. Battery life varies based on which are used, but when the JibONE is powered with two Canon LP-E6 14.4Wh batteries (for a total of 28.8Wh), users can expect two hours of continuous operation at full speed or up to 12,000 still images when used in time-lapse mode.
Connectivity comes in the form of Bluetooth LE which enables users to control the jib using an iPhone running iOS 11 or newer or an Android handset running version 5.0 or later. The mobile app offers a simplified interface for recording poses, setting up motion loops, adjusting speed and more. Users can also program camera motions with the jib by manually adjusting the device.
The JibONE is available from Edelkrone now for $1000.
Since the launch of the EOS R line in 2018, Canon has mostly concentrated its attentions on high-end RF lenses. The RF 85mm F1.2L IS USM is among the very best.
It’s inexpensive, lightweight and will keep going for days on a single battery charge. While it’s not great for video and its wireless image transfer is slow, the D3500 is a simple and un-intimidating camera that’s a great starting point for beginners.
The D780 comes as a belated update to the well-respected D750. We’ve been impressed by what we’ve seen of what’s essentially a mirrored Z6.
Canon’s latest flagship, the EOS-1D X Mark III is a big, fast, tough DSLR that hides an impressively refined mirrorless camera within it. We’ve taken a pre-production model to a basketball game, a low light concert, and even a blacksmith shop. Find out how we think it stacks up.
We’ve been testing the Nikon Z50 extensively and found a lot to like about it. However, the camera’s biggest drawback is probably that it faces such well-established competition.
