https://youtu.be/8kitz9Eaw24 Is anyone else getting sick of the same old action camera footage shot from a rider’s helmet? Apart from the still-unresolved legal ramifications of attaching a GoPro or other action camera to a helmet (see stories below), the footage all looks the same and it’s just plain boring. Now Joby has turned the action camera world professional with a device that your mates can use to get in close to the action as you ride past with your knee down or a rooster tail behind you. It’s called the Joby Action Jib Kit and Pole Pack which has a pulley system that will tilt the camera on the end of an extendable pole that looks something like a fishing rod. A jib is a professional name for a similar device used in Hollywood movies to operate cameras that zoom and swoop over the action. Now you can look like a professional for a lot less as the jib is available from $US80. It will fit any action camera such as a GoPro or even an iPhone if you add an adapter grip.See alsoBike accessoriesGear/accessoriesIs your handlebar mount damaging your phone? And because it weighs only 665g and the extender pole can be packed away in a backpack, you can take it with you on your next ride for some Hollywood-style cinematic fun. Can you imagine the quality of shots if a pillion operated the jib? They would be able to pan right down to the road and up above the bike, giving incredible views of the action.
