The Meerkat is a mini jib for a full complement 35mm camera, lens and mattebox. It has been designed with maximum rigidity and optimum action for its size and weight. Making use of a quick action sliding counter weight arm makes for quick set-ups, which when retracted makes for easy transportation in a car trunk. This jib arm fits on top of standard heavy tripods, bazookas, dollies or tracking vehicles and accepts any conventional or nodal fluid head. These can be mounted in either upright or inverted mode to the 150mm bowl or Mitchell plate front offset fitting.
