FotoCrane 2 Lightweight dual arm Jib
The FotoCrane2 was created as a result of that customer feedback requesting a dual arm lightweight crane able to support a wide variety of DSLR and modern high performance cameras such as the new 4:3 systems as well as the exciting BlackMagic Cinema Cameras.
Following the huge success of the Single arm FotoCranes, we asked our customers what they wanted next and the majority of the answers came back requesting a more robust for larger lens cameras, yet super lightweight, and easy to transport.
The crane can be mounted on virtually any medium or heavy-duty video tripod. We run them on Benro KH25 and Manfrotto 500 series including 501, 502 and 503 systems. They also support - with small cameras - other lightweight, affordable tripods, making the whole system considerably more affordable than some of the other heavier units out there.
