Reviews and Testimonials

Busted Wallet review"The Feather Camera Crane is the most compact jib I have seen of it’s kind. I thought it was compact looking online, but when it arrived at my doorsteps I had no idea."

Beattie Outdoor Productions' review: "Long story short, it’s super durable, great design, very few parts to destroy or leave behind by accident – and the weight (or lack of) and extremely portable size is astonishing."


Resource Magazine Online review: "Overall, I’ve been very impressed with the quality of footage, the low weight and small footprint of the unit, and how easy it is to assemble. Within a few shoots I feel that I’ve come close to mastering the use of it, and minimized my setup time as much as possible."

Planet 5D preview: "On first blush, it appears that the Feather Camera Crane is being priced as a premium product – and in some ways, it does significantly exceed the specs of both the Kessler and Aviator jibs."

Grit Visual's article and video review: "Over the course of the past year, I’ve used the Feather Camera Crane on a countless number of shoots. As Grit Visual grows, we generally move into bigger, bulkier equipment. However, the Feather Crane is still one of our lightest, smallest and most reliable filmmaking tools. When I’m packing for a shoot, it always goes in the bag."

Rank Films review: "I use this jib all the time. Whether I'm going on a day hike or using it on set, it's a great piece of equipment to keep on hand. I recommend this jib over all the other portable jibs out there. It's truly amazing how compact it is for how well it performs. It can handle around 10 pounds. I've used a Sony FS700 with 24-70mm L on it and there were no problems handling the weight. Two things I recommend are one, a monitor, and two, a ball head, to give you more flexibility with your camera angles."

"I brought the crane to the Karakorum Range in Pakistan where every ounce counts. We were operating at almost 21,000 feet and the ability to use a lightweight jib that allowed me to create sophisticated camera movements really adds production value in such a wild place."

 "There is no other crane that I could have used to get these shots. In some pretty unreal places in China, I climbed ropeless with the crane on my back and then set it up right on the edge of a free standing spire! I love how light and fast to set up this rig is... truly a work of genius!!"

Cedar Wright - Professional Climber and Filmmaker

“The Feather Camera Crane gives me the ability to elevate the level of cinematography on expedition shoots without slowing down the team or breaking my back!”

Renan Ozturk - Camp 4 Collective

“To be on the stage wing and to use the crane to film David Byrne and St Vincent was killer! To throw that camera out over the 7,000 person crowd and then back up on the stage was so cool… It was definitely ninja up there!”

Brett Schreckengost - freelance photojournalist

“This jib added a dimension of camera opportunities, and it’s run and gun setup times allowed us to get great shots on a very tight schedule. We also utilized the Lite Pro Camera Jib for dynamic camera moves. Its light weight and ease of setup allowed us to deploy the jib quickly to capture scenes and wildlife on the fly.”

Rex Lint - Big Tree Media

“The Feather Crane is one piece of gear I couldn't live without. It has a 7ft reach, weighs in under 4 lb. total, and can even support the weight of a RED Epic camera. It's perfect for big backcountry filming missions where covering ground, having a light kit, and taking beautiful, dynamic shots is paramount.”

Joey Schusler - Yeti Cycles

“I was blown away when I first used the Feather Camera Crane because it was both lightweight and incredibly sturdy, which has always been a negatively skewed ratio. Now I can ditch the heavy dolly and get reliable cinematic movement while traveling with an insanely lightweight setup."

Samuel Crossley - Adventure filmmaker and photographer

“The Feather Camera Crane proved to be a cool tool in the success of our Yukon mountain bike video project.”

Trevor Clark - Adventure Photographer and Filmmaker

“Super smooth and just what we needed to make the world’s biggest bamboo forest come alive… It’s hard not to use it on every shot.”

James Adamson - James Adamson Productions

“The Feather Camera Crane has changed what is possible for filming in remote locations.”

Rachid Dahnoun - Adventure Photographer and Filmmaker

"We love it!" – Emmerich Pendl, Austria

 This thing rocks! - David de Vos, U.S.A.

"As a production team, we've shot film and video on every continent over the last 10 years, in some of the most remote and demanding locations on the planet. When choosing gear we're always trying to find a balance between weight, size, performance, and durability. We rolled the dice and decided on the Feather Camera Crane for a recent month long film expedition in remote locations in Mongolia. One cold night, our expedition boat sprung a leak and filled with water, then froze solid. Any hesitations we had regarding durability of the crane instantly vanished when it emerged unharmed from the ice. The crane's super lightweight and compact design make it ideal for remote travel. It performs great and the simple design makes assembling in the field a breeze – even with gloves. It's next testing ground will the the remote islands of the Seychelles, off the coast of Africa." – RA Beattie, U.S.A.

My Lite Pro Gear crane is working very well. It is an excellent piece of equipment!" – Urs Gruenig, Switzerland

Super happy with the crane. Beautiful design and fabrication. Thanks for getting it to me so quickly.” - Rob Elliott, U.S.A.
"Super quick to set up and incredibly light, it's definitely not just for mountains! I've been putting it to use on fashion shows, fashion films and commercials, and because of its lightness I've even been able to put it on my slider, further expanding the range of shots possible. I can put it in my standard kit bag next to my tripod without adding much more weight or taking up anymore room - its genuinely amazing to have a camera crane that sets up so quickly and folds down so small, and the production quality of my work has already been taken to another level. I would never have used a crane otherwise because most are too big and heavy and take too long to set up. I needed something light and small but would give the right reach I needed and could be set up as quickly as my slider - and I found it with the Feather Camera Crane. I'll be taking it on every shoot I go on.– Alexander Thompson, United Kingdom
We can get the Feather Camera Crane anywhere–obviously you can see by the video, it can be up on boats. You know, the thing’s super light … we’re out there, we’re getting on planes, and there’s only so much weight we can bring, so we need equipment that packs light and provides diversified shots.” – Kyle Nickolite, U.S.A.
"Thanks for the great product! great tool for me." – Tasos Kosmatopoulos, Greece
