This high performance compact Jibstick Jr control kit offers the simplicity and intuitive thumb control design favored by many modern operators. It is a more streamlined version of the Jibstick Pro – there is no built-in lens control, no motion limits for pan/tilt, no motor disable, and no camera record start/stop. The Jibstick Jr has all of the electromechanical performance of the other kits, but without full motion control capability. The Jibstick Jr uses a precision thumb control joystick on a compact handgrip control box. All controls and settings are within reach of your fingertips. The Jibstick Jr works beautifully where intuitive manual control is needed, and it can be upgraded later with an advanced console and pan bars or hand wheels. The new Jibstick Jr allows you to reverse direction on pan & tilt independently, adjust speed limits for pan & tilt independently, adjust joystick deadband, and set smoothing control for softer starts & stops.
With independent speed and direction controls for pan & tilt, smoothing/ramping control, and adjustable deadband for our precision thumb joystick, you’ll have exceptionally smooth and dynamic remote pan & tilt control up to 2500′. The addition of the optional advanced console enables full motion control capability, as well as the ability to control the head using cine-style hand wheels or broadcast-style pan bars. These upgraded systems offer full pan/tilt/zoom/focus/iris control within the following modes: motion-linked intervalometer for time-lapse and stop motion, record and playback of 1 hour and 2000 takes, frame-accurate repeat pass, up to 2000 position marks, the ability to import and export all motion control data, and much more.
Incorporating such high-end features as precision enclosed drivetrain, exoskeletal construction and a slip-ring base, the Cinema Pro represents a new standard for lightweight, cost-effective pan & tilt motion control heads. The Cinema Pro is precision-made yet rugged and becoming the logical and affordable choice for a much broader scope of users than any head on the market. Cost effective not only for big budget motion pictures, but for worship facilities, sports, concerts, newsrooms,military,government, and other film, video, and HD applications.
Proudly Made in the USA, the CP is constructed from exoskeletal body sections that are CNC machined from solid billet to exacting standards, so rigidity and structural integrity are second to none. The custom slip rings and robust motor drives are designed and tested intensively to perform flawlessly under the most demanding conditions, and the electronics & software have years of field testing behind them. Add to all this the painstaking assembly and QC done in our state-of-the-art facility, and you’ve got a motion control head of the highest caliber.

When we began our search for a high end motion control system to put atop our camera boom we found VariZoom / MocoDyne Cinema Pro series to offer the largest feature set that was fully expandable and high performance. We purchased the Cinema Pro Head, the encoded Pan Bars, and more recently added the Jib Stick. We plan on additionally purchasing the Cinema wheels as we can cover all aspects of production with this full featured system.
