Next Step in the Evolution of Camera Jib!

Quickly Moves In/Out of a Shot. Manoeuvres into Inaccessible Areas – Smoothly & Silently.


Thoughtful Engineering

Proaim Powermatic Scissor telescopic camera crane lets you easily capture creative shots usually done with high-end and expensive Technocranes.

Extending the scissor arm puts the camera right where you need it. The flexible motion allows the arm to open 17’ out and then retract back in.

High-grade Aluminum Crane Frame is lightweight & durable enough to hold 3-Axis Camera Gimbals with a maximum payload of 15kg / 33lb.

The high-speed special 70 steel bearings ensure outstanding durability & strength while providing smooth soundless movement every time you extend or retract.

It is perfect for tight indoor spaces as well as on-location shoots. It even fits into a private vehicle.

Effortless Operation

The Powermatic Scissor allows you to achieve fluid movements of extreme precision without any difficulty.

Steady Fluid Head ensures perfect alignment of your 3-Axis Gimbal on Scissor Crane.

Tilt Lock allows you to fix the jib’s tilt angle to get linear tracking shots.

Pan Lock enables locking the jib’s pan movement for achieving high/low angle shots.

LCD Mounting Arm helps in attaching an LCD monitor for better viewing of shots; the arm can be mounted left/right as per your requirement.


Precisely Controlled Movements

High-Performance 12V DC motor ensures silent operation and drives the jib smoothly.

The Precise Controller very conveniently push-out / pull-in the jib length and control the movements.

The system is integrated with a V-Mount Battery Plate, which adapts a 14.8V V-Mount battery to power the drive system.

An amazing tool in the right hands

I’ve had the scissor jib for just over a year now and can truly say that I love it. It isn’t a perfect techno crane replacement, but for the cost, it is very close. Evening just using it as a “normal” jib that has the ability to quickly place the camera wherever you need is extremely valuable. And unlike a big techno crane, I have been able to bring this inside many houses, even getting some really cool shoots inside a bed room with 8ft (2.5m) ceilings. The motor control does take a little finesse. I actually flip the controller 180* and use my index finger to control the rocker, I find that gives me much more control than my thumb. If you just push down on the button there can be a fair amount of rocking that can occur due to inertia. So a gentle touch is required. I also usually give the head control to the DP - as operating the pickle (extension and contraction) + the up and down + side to side is already take a lot of coordination and brain power. Adding 3 more axis to that can really mess with your brain and cause you to ruin shots. It is well built but just due to the design, there is a little sway that can happen when it is fully extended. So this should be monitored in a dangerous or high wind situation. Also the motor is extremely powerful! It sheered a bolt off once when a weight got jammed in the wrong place, so it can most certain take a finger off. So please always use caution when extending or retracting. I put my Ronin 2 on it and have regularly used professional cameras such as: Arri Alexa mini (and LF), Red Gemini, Dragon, etc. with cinema lenses, follow focus, and wireless, and it has handled it wonderfully. I would definitely not push it past the recommended limit of 33lbs however. Feel free to message me on Instagram with any questions: @gabekimpson
