How about a video production tool that can pay for itself in the first two minutes you use it?
The tracks and dollies and sliders and jibs and cranes required to shoot motion video are big, expensive, and you never have them with you in the field. But, we all know that some motion in our shots makes an incredible difference. So, what to do?
Welcome To MagicJib
Anybody who shoots video with a DSLR or smaller camera (recommended max of 4 pounds) needs a MagicJib. It is the first motion video production tool that you can actually always have with you — when you need it — where you need it. For remote, run & gun shoots, it's handier and more valuable than a tripod.
MagicJib is so small and easy to carry that you can have it with you whenever you're shooting with your DSLR or any smaller camera (up to 4 pounds or so).
MagicJib lets you get motion shots in remote situations where you would have never, ever before gotten any motion shots at all. That makes your video better — more creative. Higher quality. More motion.
MagicJib handles any of the Canon or Nikon D series professional DSLRs and lenses, as well as all of the following smaller cameras:
- Micro Four-Thirds (Panasonic, Olympus, Kodak)

- Fujifilm X
- Olympus PEN or OM-D
