Kessler Crane CS1003 Overview

  • 1Description

The Kessler Crane CineSlider is a belt-driven, heavy-duty camera slider supporting up to 80 lb. It is made of reinforced aluminum, and the slide rails are on the inside where they're better protected from bumps and other types of impact. This model measures 60.5" and has a travel distance of 51". It is lightweight for a heavy-duty slider, weighing a portable 12 lb. This CineSlider comes with a removable crank handle which lets you hand-drive the belt system, and the arc diameter of the handle is adjustable. The more you increase the arc, the more precise your turns will be. This CineSlider supports 80 lb when placed on a surface or mounted on two tripods, and 25 lb when positioned vertically (25 lb is how much the robust belt can handle when the slider is positioned vertically). This 60.5" model cannot be mounted on a single tripod.

The CineSlider is designed with adjustable drag control, which allows you to add resistance to the movement of the slider carriage, similar to how drag control works on a tripod head. Drag control will allow for more consistency on slower slides. Additionally, the drag control knob also works as a friction brake when fully locked down.

The CineSlider is also capable of being motorized with one of several optional Kessler Crane motorized systems, such as the elektraDrive, CineDrive, or Second Shooter motion control systems. It can also be enhanced with the optional Kessler Parallax, which will add a panning axis, allowing for inward and outward panning shots.

    Kessler Crane CS1003 Reviews

    CineSlider with Crank Handle (60.5") is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too weak for a 40LB camera. Unreliable, weak mechanism of the shuttle plate, needs maintenance after every shot. And the movement is not as smooth as other sliders I tried. Pretty unlucky considering the claims of the manufacturer. Also, too weak for an Arri Amira. It's a 5D - Sony Fs5 weight level slider. Had so much trouble with this product that I would happily return it. It had happened to me before that Kessler products did not satisfy expectations.
