    You’ll get hipjib shortly after production start months ahead of official dealer availability (add $25 for shipping outside of Germany), and once it is in your hands you will receive an individual online training by its creator, cinematographer Gert Wagner via Skype or iSight, in English or German. Gert will not only demonstrate to you his very own special techniques using hipjib, but, most importantly, he will check on your equipment, watch your first moves with hipjib and give you thorough directions on how to maximize your performance. Of course you may also consult Gert again later and exchange your experience, thoughts, and ideas with samples of your clips. Because if there is anything we could learn from you we'd love to hear from you to help us make hipjib even better.
