Max heights are stated by the manufacturer with the camera/head 'overslung'. The Jimmy jib is not well suited to that configuration. Underslung camera is  more stable and safer, the lens height is approx 4ft lower than quoted.


Although there are no specific manuals available from the manufacturer for the 9ft and 15ft configurations these lengths are officially recognised by Stanton Video Services  as permitted configurations.
