Panther’s Pixy Crane is a lightweight, highly portable camera crane with a maximum reach of 14′ and a maximum payload of up to 25kg in weight.
The Pixy can also be rigged as a short jib arm that can in turn be mounted onto a Husky dolly for tracking jib movements.
In addition to this, we also stock a Panther Trixy Remote Head that allows a single operator 2-axis control of a camera, along with lens control for broadcast-style lenses such as the Fujinon Cabrio series.
The Cartoni JIBO is a compact and portable jib with a maximum payload of 20kg and a maximum reach of 68″.
This lightweight jib packs away into a wheeled flight case and is quick enough to set up that it can be used on the fly when on location – this is the perfect jib for adding production value to your documentaries or low-budget promos.
The JIBO also allows the camera head to under-slung for low-mode shots or in portrait mode, which is particularly useful for fashion and website banner projects.
Shoot Blue is an amazing rental company who's reliable and competitive in what they offer. I've had the opportunity to work with them on several different projects and their service has always been top. Highly recommended!
Shoot Blue have been my supplier of choice since 2007 ever since they were first recommended to me. Even if you're just doing a small shoot you're treated with the same care and attention as when you're on a big shoot and they go out of their way to accommodate your needs. Their prices are very competitive and the service is top notch and I always feel comfortable turning to them for advice and asking for recommendations on kit. When you hire their in house crew to work on your shoots the crew members are always really knowledgeable about the equipment and well trained, they are reliable and come to the set with a positive attitude and work hard to get the best results possible. I would highly recommend them to any independent filmmakers.
As a business owner, Director Shoot Blue has helped me build who I am as a story teller behind the camera. In my view the most important thing to my success as a story teller is knowing that I have a rental house you can always depend on. Shoot Blue has delivered outstanding service time after time again. Great job to the team :)
Shoot Blue are a fantastic rental firm with lovely staff and awesome equipment. They supported my recent commercial production very well indeed and I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend them to any size project. They deliverted and collected the kit as neccesary, modified the order when production requirements changed and generally helped the whole process go smoothly.
