Measuring just 82cm for transit, and weighing just 2kg, this jib is perfect for people on the go. It’s ideal for both DSLRs and all handheld camcorders under 3kg, or could be used with action cameras such as the GoPro for an even more lightweight set-up. The Mini Jib is fastened directly to the video head of any sturdy tripod, in the same way you would attach your camera. It can be mounted using both 1/4” and 3/8” screws. On the end of the jib is a camera plate mounted on a pulley with a control cable coming down the jib to a second pulley at the side of the video head on the tripod. It is this control cable that keeps the camera level as the jib is raised or lowered. Tilting the tripod’s video head controls the camera pulley on the end of the jib, enabling the camera to be tilted up or down. An additional feature of the Mini Jib is the ability to mount the jib horizontally so you can create sideways tracking movement, similar to a slider, or the camera can be positioned to move forward or back. Combine this with using the pan bar on the video head and some very unusual shots can be achieved. The K3 Mini Jib Traveller is available now at www.haguecamerasupports. com. Price: £250.00 ex vat, £300.00 inc vat. 18 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 86 FEBRUARY 2014 A ndrea Taglia, live sound engineer for the famous Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, is a huge fan of DPA microphones and rates them as the most technically advanced and sonically transparent microphones on the market. It is therefore no surprise that Taglia personally owns a selection of DPA microphones and regularly sources additional units whenever he is on tour with Bocelli. “I’ve been using DPA microphones for many years and bought my first stereo d:dicate 4006 Recording Microphone when it was still known by the old Bruel & Kjaer name,” Taglia says. “I first became familiar with the DPA brand when I was using DPA miniature microphones on singers in musical productions. Eventually I began experimenting and started using them on instruments as well, which gave me great results. I’m now a huge fan and have bought quite a few for my own microphone collection, including d:dicate 4006 and 4011 Recording microphones and a selection of d:screet 4090 and 4061 Miniature microphones.” www.dpamicrophones.com
