I'm wondering about which camera tripod and mini jib to get so after some research my final options are the Sachtler Ace M tripod system and the VariZoom Solo Jib. My big interrogative is if could use the jib with that tripod. I asked B&H and they told me the tripod just supports 4 kg, but in Sachtler website says the tripod legs supports 20 kg, they told me the brand's website is daunting... I don't know if I should believe them or just get the tripod and use it with the jib.

 

NOTE: My camera is the Blackmagic Pocket one with Rokinon lenses and my rig is not that big so it would be around 2.5 kg in total...

 

Here are the links from the products:

And also I have another big question... which spreaders are better? the mid-level or floor ones? I'd appreciate the advice since I'm just migrating from Manfrotto prosumer tripods and all this is new to me.

 

Thank you!
