The Kessler KC-Lite 8.0 is a high quality crane at an affordable price. For the filmmaker shooting on a tight budget, using a lighter digital video or DSLR camera under 10 pounds, the KC-Lite is the highest quality camera crane in the sub $400 price range.
Lightweight and Durable
Based off the design of our standard dual-rail KC series of camera cranes, the KC-Lite is a 100% tool-less, single rail crane that is light-weight and portable, yet has the heft where it counts like the 3/8"" thick ultra rigid mounting plate.
Perfect for DSLR
For rigs under 10 lbs, there isn't a better crane for the money. Filmmakers often have to sacrifice quality for quantity when building their gear arsenal, the KC-Lite elimates that concern by providing an excellent jib solution at an economy price.
Unlike other cranes in this price range the KC-Lite mounts to your fluid head in a way that utilizes the fluid drag of the head's pan and tilt giving the best control and fluid like movements in all 3 modes of crane operation (manual tilt, fixed-angle mode, & automatic mode).
Backed by our manufacturer's Lifetime Warranty, we guarantee that it is free from defects in material and workmanship, otherwise we'll fix it.
