(Camera, tripod, weights and baseplates not included)

Counter Weights

We recommend using dumbbell weights as counter weighs for the Genus Mini Jib, as they come in different increments and are very compact, so when you find your perfect combination it makes life easy. They are cheap and can be found at any good sports store. For fine-tuning, using the Lock Jaw Collar clamps moving the weights closer and further away to ensure the camera Jib is perfectly balanced.

Quick Release Plates

We recommend attaching a camera quick release plate to mini jib to allow the quick and easy mounting of your camera on it. The mini jib comes with bolts which allow you to securely and easily attach a quick release plate


We recommend you support the mini jib with a strong and steady tripod. Make sure the rated payload of tripod is greater than the combined weight of the mini jib , the camera and another accessories you attach to it.



The MoCo is powered by 8 x AA batteries. The battery holder should be removed from the housing and the 4 batteries positioned on both sides before powering up.
