    Just wanted to say that Dan was kind enough to let me use a prototype of the VanceJib and it was a great jib then. This production unit looks like a major improvement on an already great product. I keep on saying this but The next fat check I get, I am throwing down on one of these jibs. Good work!

    Hi, I've been reading/searching about the VanceJib but does anyone know how the VanceJib does the manual tilt function?
    I read that it goes directly to the tripod and I don't see no tilt arm so how would you tilt it?

    The vance jib only booms and swings. there is no way to execute a tilt of the camera head from the jib.

    Last I spoke with Dan he was getting a remote pan tilt mechanism together, but its still under development.

    VANCE jib is very cool.

    Great article, are using standard legs for the base in the picts. You must have to sandbag it down! Cheers?

    Thanks Jason,
    I must look for something else then.
    a tilt function is a must for a jib....

    I went to NAB 08 to find a jib. Vance was my favorite but I did not need tilt.

    I really likes the Type S jib as well. Similar in build to Dan's but has remote tilt.

    Also ezfx.com has a jib with a pan tilt mechanism you operate from the front of the jib. Its pretty cool also.

    Couple of recent pics of the VanceJib in action. It's been rock steady on a Kessler K-Pod with various camera rigs from 15 to 50 lbs. Incredibly fast and easy to set up on location.

    I must also say that it's been a pleasure working with Dan Vance. I needed a couple of minor modifications which he worked with me to have done quickly. His customer service is absolutely top notch and matches the great workmanship of the VanceJib.

    Bring on the footage. Can anyone "edumecate" me on how much is lost with a non-tilltable jib?
