Kessler Crane just released some new and very cool products. Among the most intriguing new devices is the Shuttlepod Mini, which is a miniaturized version of their original Shuttlepod, a unique completely smooth and silent slider that can be run at any angle, even upside down and has many upgrade options such as a motor system.
The Shuttlepod Mini is so small it can fit into your backpack yet it can be expanded indefinitely in length and as Eric Kessler mentions you can even use 3/4″ square aluminum that is available at any hardware store.
Well this is certainly not a cheap system, but if you’re in the business to get a compact, versatile, reliable and smooth slider this $1000 – $2500 looks like it could be just what you’re looking for.
Kessler also has some more affordable, upgradable kits here: LINK
Also very interesting is their new Low Profile Ball Head, a small ballhead with superstrength that lets you easily and quickly set up your camera (up to the weight of the Alexa) at the desired angle.
This one would set you back $150 LINK
