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. 

This starter bundle includes everything you need to be up and running with a 1, 2, or 3 axis system.

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. 

Don’t settle for anything less than your best - put a Second Shooter™ to work for you today.

KEY FRAMEABLE

Since Second Shooter is a digital system (like CineDrive), all you need to do is mark your keyframes. There is no need to record your move. 

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.

TIME-LAPSE

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.

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.

TURNTABLE

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

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.

REPEATABLE

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

BUILT-IN INTERVALOMETER

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.

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

LOW PROFILE

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

LEVEL

Well constructedReview by Ramesh Krishnamurthy
Overall
This is a very good product for the price. The motor noise is a bit high.
Kessler Srcond ShooterReview by Alasdair Smith
Overall
Well made and designed product.
Only crtiticism, which is unfortunate, is that the motor noise is loud. I was planning to use it, among other things, for filming interviews. Audio will have to be carefully controlled by keeping Shooter at a large distance from microphone.
A dream come through!Review by Lasse Henning
Overall
Finally - Plug and play 3 axis motion control at a great price! Solid construction, reliability and still lightweight enough to carry around in your backpack :-) I LOVE my second shooter!
The only thing I recommend is to replace the two long Cat5 cables with more rugged ones since they tend to get very stiff in sub-zero temperatures.
Note to Kessler; You need to hurry up with the 3`d keyframe ;-)
Out of the box on a commercial shootReview by Steve Townsend
Overall
Well made and easy to use bit of kit. Confident enough to use the same day straight out of the box on a commercial job! Slightly disappointed that only two keyframes. Understand more are coming in new firmware. Yes please three will do!!
Amazing and SimpleReview by Darren
Overall
1 - Great quality build
2 - Simple installation to my Cineslider
3 - UI is easy and quick to operate
4 - Just happy with it

That's the quick and dirty review. I would like to say that if you think you need BOTH the second shooter and parallax to do the smooth parallax effect, you don't. The Second Shooter is fine by itself.

However, if you have no access to electricity or battery, then the Second Shooter is of no use, and that's where Parallax comes in.
