Jib Recommendations for use with URSA Broadcast

PostFri Nov 08, 2019 4:01 am

We're planning on adding a jib to our configuration next year to operate an URSA Broadcast along with Fuji LA16x8BRM-XB1A lens. We currently have two URSA Broadcasts on stationary tripods.

Anyone have recommendations for jib that will work well with this combo? Anyone have experience using an URSA Broadcast w/a jib? If so, could you share your experiences?

I don't think it's much different than any other broadcast camera you would use on a jib.

But I would go with a wide angle instead of the 8mm.

Defently go for a wide angle lens. A 5.2 or even 4.x would do a much better job.
Fuji HA 14x4.5 is a nice wideangle. But for crane ops. I would even go with a lens with Motorised zoom and focus. With the right head you can control them all from the remotes without adding loose servo motors and stuff.. ;)

Personally i use this one on our crane: Late SD Canon J11ex4.5BIASE With full motorised, Our Egripment Scanner head is able to control focus and zoom straight from the remote. And iris is handled by the camera. ;)
