The Jimmy Jib is a triangular crane system which uses an arm supporting a camera at one end and a counterweight at the other. The crane can swing from the ground to the cranes maximum reach of 40ft and can swing 360 degrees. The camera attached can pan, tilt and zoom, all operated by one person and whilst swinging, giving unlimited camera angles and therefore expensive looking shots at a relatively low cost.
