Looking for some help on something.
I am always looking to add more gear to my collection. Most of which I rent out with myself as operator or bring along with me on jobs.
Thinking about adding a 32 foot jib/crane to that collection.
Going to be using my DJI Ronin as the pan tilt head so I am just buying the crane.
Getting it a bit customised from the factory in China, so yes going to import one, but it is basically the same as the Proaim one.
(I believe these guys make theirs and a few other brands, hard to say..)
So I am wondering if it is worth it.
I have 2 indie features coming up that I can use it in.
Potentially a higher end short if it gets funded and any student films that I can make use of it in the coming months.
Generally do you find that jibs get used much in work around the UK?
Would the Ronin be too limited? I already have extension arms on it but it wont take anything like an Alexa or ENG like length. So limited in camera choice to RED and other cameras that sort of build size.
Insurance is another thing. I already think I need to get some but most of the time I am covered under the production's.
