I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience using the Miller Pro-Jib. I'm looking into purchasing one to support a 20 lbs camera. Any thoughts?

I can't speak for the Miller jib but I have been nothing but happy that I spent twice as much as an EZFX jib on my Porta-jib Traveller. Here are the features of the Port-jib Traveller that distinguish it from the rest of the 7-foot pack:

shortest longest
o reach 38" 55"
o boom 4.5' 7'

o rock solid construction
o supports up to 40 pounds
o telescopic design for use in constricted areas
o boom and pan friction controls
o 100mm bowl for camera head
o center column mounts to 100mm bowl or Mitchell plate
o bubble levels on center column and camera plate
o sliding counterweight for balance fine-tuning
o weight 29 lbs. / folds to 31" / in wheeled flight-case

I and an experienced grip have set up the Porta-jib Traveller in seven minutes... with camera mounted and cabled.

Oh! And I forgot:

o vector weight bar - an upright bar that holds some of the counter weight. Jibs naturally wish to return to the position in which they were balanced. The vector bar counters this tendency, making the jib perfectly balanced at any boom angle.
