    hi

    Has anyone mounted the M5 to a Kessler crane pro jib?. There isn't enough room for the m5 to swing and the side piece where the ball head mount sits gets in the way?

    I have toad and ninja star if it helps?

    Thanks. Much appreciated.

    I'm not super familiar with that particular crane, but is there a way to use a riser? Or put a 100mm fluid head on the jib and mount your M5 to the Fluid head, which should give it some height to clear the arm?

    I assume you're mounting the Movi on top and not underslung, but the same thing applies -- a riser or a shovel-nose offset of some kind would work.

    Thanks Graham. At moment as I have the ninja star and the road was going to mount underneath. Other I guess as you say is to mount on top and change the shape of the main to sit on top.

    Thanks for your reply. Much appreciated.
