The Kessler Crane Second Shooter is one of the most elegant motion-control solutions out there. Key features include:

  • Fast, easy setup

  • Sophisticated operation

  • Multiple camera options

  • Slider not included

Mature Product. Designed without compromises, the Kessler Second Shooter simplifies the process of adding three-axis motion to a shoot while never seeming complicated. Use the same device for time-lapses, looping interviews, and even visual effects!

Easy Setup. Go from unpacking to shooting in just ten minutes! That’s not something one usually expects from a motion-control system.

Sophisticated Operation. Following the principles of key-frame animation, camera moves are planned out in seconds by setting three simple motion keys. Ease of operation is aided by the included Manfrotto 577 sliding plate.

Multiple Camera Options. Since many camera manufacturers use their own proprietary connections, we opted to include several of the more popular choices. When you rent this kit, you’ll get shutter-release cables for the following cameras:

  • Canon Sub-mini connection: Canon 80D, 77D, 70D, T7i, T6i, T6s, etc.

This motion-control system is designed specifically for Kessler Sliders. It won’t fit onto any other brand’s sliders.
