The CineSlider offers a 51" travel distance and supports up to 80 lb when set horizontally, 25 lb when vertically.

The crank handle has a snap-on design and offers an adjustable arc diameter, for greater control of movement.

  • Kessler Crane CineSlider (60.5")

    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 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 in that situation). This 60.5" model cannot be mounted on a single tripod. It does not come with a crank handle, but you can add an optional Kessler Crank Handle at any time.

    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 CineSlider Crank Handle

    The CineSlider Crank Handle from Kessler Crane is a removable crank for hand-driving the pulley system on a CineSlider. It features a snap-on design for easy attachment and adjustable arc diameter for greater control of movement. To fine-tune control, simply loosen a silver tightening knob on the crank and slide the handle in or out to adjust the arc diameter.

    Note: The Crank Handle will not attach to CineSliders manufactured before spring 2014, as those models have a built-in, non-removable handle design.

CineSlider and Crank Handle Kit (60.5") is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy. Buttery smooth. Reliable. Your new Best Buddy. If you're reading about Kessler Cinesliders, then you've got an interest in Pro Gear. This product fits the bill. I've had this filming timelapse sequences in the dead of Winter in the garden and I've dragged it through deserts in Australia. It still gives me as beautifully smooth footage as the day I bought it. If you buy the 5ft version (this product), then you'll need tripod support at both ends for stability. One tripod in the middle will not cut it. The ideal solution is two Kessler slider kwik release adaptor plates, two Kessler quick release receivers and two very heavy duty tripods (I use Manfrotto 536 sticks with 504HD heads). Think about transporting this as well. There is a soft case made for these which is well made and will offer decent protection. If you want to fly with the unit or otherwise professionally protect the unit, I thoroughly recommend the Sportube Series 1 case - made for transporting skis. It's a beast - I store in this case and transport it everywhere. Note that you'll still need the soft case inside the hard case - otherwise it will slide around. There's definitely cheaper options than Kessler on the market, but I'm yet to see a system that matches this quality.
