Are ProAm jibs (http://www.bargain-c.../store/home.php) any good? I'm looking for a low-cost jib for my GL2 (and possibly JVC HD-100), but don't know the gotchas with cheap jibs like this one.

Or, any suggestions for an inexpensive ($500 or less) jibs?

I'm facing the same situation. Looking for a well priced jib within the 500-800 price range. Of course tilt function on the camera is the big thing. This jib appears to do just that.

Any advice and or links would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Rod

Looks like a useful tool. You will need a tripod and that is an extra $80.00. Also on this kind of jibs you can?t pan. With out the capability to pan your moves will be severely limited.
