Kessler Second Shootr 3-Axis Motion Control System

Second Shooter™ is a revolutionary motion control system that boasts a sleek and compact design, feature-rich operation and an incredibly intuitive user interface. Featuring 100% repeatable motion control for live-mode, looping, time-lapse and stop-motion applications. Unlike stepper motor based moco systems on the market today, Second Shooter™ receives feedback communication from digital-encoded motors in determining motor positions to ensure precise control. Second Shooter™ provides users with ultra-smooth and quiet motion control, making it an outstanding companion on any job. Second Shooter™ is motion control for the masses. An affordable and comprehensive solution that will meet the needs of large production houses and one-man-bands alike. With the ability to set up and operate quickly, it can be deployed in run-and-gun environments just as easy as it can be used in dramatic astro-timelapses. 




Compact Design
Second Shooter's small footprint allows it to fit nicely into existing camera bags and eliminates the need for additional cases. Separate the Pan from the Tilt axis to use independently or for easier travel. Every piece is modular. 

Speed/Torque Options
Easily switch the motor speed/torque (power) for the Slider motor via the quick-change pulley system. (3 options for CineSlider, Philip Bloom and Stealth) (2 options for Pocket Dolly v2.0, Shuttle Pod & Shuttle Pod Mini)

KOS Integration
Bringing the power & features of CineDrive’s kOS software to the smaller form factor of Second Shooter.

Live & Looping
From basic slider shots to unmanned, looping shots for an interview - Second Shooter proves its place as an A cam or B cam.

Stop Motion
Stop motion is made simple with Second Shooter. Set up your key frames then simply advance through each position to achieve a flawless end product.

Setting up a complex time-lapse has never been so easy. With basic and advanced features, the intricacy of the move is up to you.

Ramper Pro
Compatible with the popular bulb ramping device, Ramper Pro.

Key Frames
Setup moves easily with two or three keyframes and let Second Shooter do the rest. Need to edit? Tweak each key frame independently without having to redo the entire move.

Build Quality
You will instantly notice the build quality of Second Shooter out of the box. We understand that our users venture into extreme environments and Second Shooter is built to withstand the harshest of conditions. Solid aluminum and quality craftsmanship are trademarks of Second Shooter

Magnalink Integration
Second Shooter utilizes the advantages of Kessler’s Magnalink system, keeping the controller and accessories, such as the MagPak battery system, organized via magnetic connection.

Manual Mode
Manual Mode is perfect for run-and-gun style shooting when precision still matters. It provides an easy interface that allows shooters to grab shots on-the-fly with non pre-programed motion control.

Repeat moves easily and at different lengths of time to achieve basic visual effects shots.

Quiet Moves
The low noise output of Second Shooter ensures that when users need to capture audio, they won’t also be capturing motor noise.

Built-In Interbalometer
Never forget your intervalometer again. Second Shooter comes with a built-in intervalometer. Simply connect the camera cable from your camera to the Second Shooter controller.

The Second Shooter Turntable is an excellent feature for users seeking advanced panning shots, such as those used in product showcase videos.

Low Profile
Incredible stability and a low profile are trademarks of Second Shooter, outclassing any imitators. 

Focus/Iris/Zoom Control
Control CineDrive's focus/iris/zoom motors via Second Shooter. 

Bridge Mode
Connect two controllers for up to 6 axis control.

Ensure a perfect composition with the built-in bullseye level.

Second Shooter’s built-in flashlight allows you to save space in your pack.
