Kessler Crane Second Shooter Controller

The brain of the Second Shooter system, the Kessler Crane Second Shooter Controller lets you connect the system's slider, pan, and tilt axes via Cat5 cables and control them remotely.

Kessler Crane Second Shooter Slider Motor

The Kessler Crane Second Shooter Slider Motor is a pulley system motor for the Kessler Crane CineSlider, Philip Bloom Slider, and Stealth Slider. It features a quick-change pulley system on the bottom that eliminates the need for additional motors. You can choose between fast, normal, and slow motor speeds by arranging the proper combination of motor pulleys. A small-size extra pulley is included.

A Second Shooter Controller is required to operate the Slider Motor. A slider-specific Kessler Crane motor mount is required to attach the Slider Motor to a slider. The compatible mounts are the CineSlider/Stealth Motor Mount, Pocket Dolly Motor Mount, Shuttle Pod Motor Mount, Shuttle Pod Mini Motor Mount, and Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly Motor Mount.

question

Would this fit the Benro Moveover Daul Rail slider?
Asked by: Jeb J.
It will not. This product is designed specifically for Kessler Crane Sliders and even requires a specific adapter depending on which Kessler Crane Slider you get. You may want to look at a product like the Syrp Genie instead, B&H # SY00300001. It is a Universal option that works on most sliders.https://bhpho.to/2HmvtHh

question

Can this Hold Blackmagic URSA mini?
Asked by: Shaefy N.
The Pan & Tilt Head that comes with this Bundle has a load capacity of 10 pounds. If you can keep your total Ursa Mini rig to 10 pounds or below you will be able to use it on this Kessler Crane product.

question

Is the Slider Motor more than enough for first time time lapse shooter?
Asked by: Joseph
It works fine but there are probably less expensive options out there. Why not try time-lapse without the motion to see if you like it first?

question

How quiet is it? If used close to the interviewee, will the sound of its motors and pulleys be audible to the interviewee's microphone?
Asked by: Arthur
It's pretty quiet, I've used it several times for interviews fairly close. It's audible through a boom, but I never hear it through a lav.
