The recently announced Edelkrone JibONE looks like a fantastic bit of kit. It’s not terribly unreasonably priced at $999 for what it offers, but once you add the motorised head and other doohickies, it can quickly run into several thousand. Filmmaker and YouTuber Chadwin Smith decided to have a go at making his own version of the JibONE.
The video’s called I built my own Edelkrone JibONE for free! and, well, it sort of is, but not really. The setup uses a motorised camera gimbal, so if you don’t already own one of those, then it’s not free. But it’s an interesting option for those who already have the kit shown in the video, but don’t want to go to the expense of the JibONE.
