The Aviator Travel Jib lets budget videographers capture videos with smooth, cinematic panning at a fraction of the price of professional systems. A jib is also known as a camera crane, which is typically used in movie productions to get a sense of the scene, usually with the camera panning or zooming from a higher vantage point.

Weighing only 3.7 pounds, the camera crane is able to extend up to 6 feet and should be able to carry your dSLR and a kit lens (the accessory can support cameras of up to 6 pounds). When not in use, it can be folded down to 24 inches for portability.

The Aviator kit includes a fluid pan base, a high-quality padded bag, mounting hardware, bubble levels, mounting ports, and a ballast bag. Slated to ship in August, the Aviator Travel Jib can be yours for a pledge of $399 on Kickstarter. There's also a carbon fiber version going for $799 if you're willing to splurge on an even lighter alternative.
