Following their premiere at NAB 2012, we are proud to announce that both the Pocket Jib Pro and the Multi-Angle Mounting Plate are now available! Make sure to also check out the Low Profile Ball Head and the Shuttlepod Mini that were also premiered at NAB.
About the Pocket Jib Pro
The Pocket Jib PRO has been designed for a greater weight capacity when larger cameras and rigs are being used. With its heavy duty arms, the PJ PRO can handle up to 50 lbs. in any length configuration. This is perfect for RED’s, ALEXA’s or any other rig weighing up to 50 lbs. (We recommend the regular Pocket Jib for cameras under 20 lbs.)
The Kessler Pocket Jib PRO is the ultimate compact, portable jib. Not only is this jib fully collapsible for easy transport, but you can also mount the Kessler Pocket Dolly™ or CineSlider™ to it, turning it into a virtual “all-in-one” production tool, offering both a jib and mini-dolly in one unit.
The PJ PRO has a telescopic dual rail arm design that has a maximum reach of five feet, fully extended, which is approximately 6″ less than our KC-8 crane. The end of the crane arm features a ball relocator with 100mm bowl, so you can mount a 100mm ball fluid head. The weight bar system is also telescopic and collapses and folds away for easy transport.
The PJ PRO comes standard with the Swivel Mount that allows you to mount the PJ PRO to your tripod using a 100mm levelable ball, 75mm fixed ring mount, or a flat mount. If you would like to mount the PJ PRO to your Hercules 2.0 head, the Swivel Mount can be removed and the PJ PRO mounted flush to the Hercules 2.0 with the tilt locked with the pin lock in place.

About the Multi-Angle Mounting Plate
The Kessler Multi-Angle Mounting Plate is designed to work in conjunction with the Kessler Low Profile Ball Head. The mounting plate can be attached in a 45° or 90° configuration and, coupled with the range of movement of the Low Profile Ball Head, will allow for configuring you camera at just about any angle you desire. The ability to mount to the LP Ball Head in a 90° configuration is ideal for doing vertical slider moves. With the optional Multi-Angle Cheese Plate, you can also attach various accessories and mounts; even another Multi-Angle Mount.

The Shuttlepod Mini
The Kessler Shuttle Pod Mini is a smaller, easier to transport version of the original Shuttle Pod. It is about half the size and half the weight of its big brother, yet still provides the versatility needed to get the manual or motorized shot you require.
The Shuttle Pod Mini is designed to break down into a small, easy to manage package. Using the shorter 2’ rail sections, it can even be stowed in a backpack for those long hikes up the mountain.
Like the larger Shuttle Pod, the Shuttle Pod Mini is totally smooth and silent. It can be used with the included track or stand alone on any smooth, flat surface.
Track sections are available in 2’, 3’ and 4’ lengths and can be connected end to end to achieve any length desired. Outrigger feet are available for the Shuttle Pod Mini for track end support. Center supports are also available for use with longer track runs. We recommend supporting the track at least every 4’.
With the Kessler Keeper/Grabber Wheels, the Shuttle Pod Mini can be also used in vertical or inverted configurations.
