Kessler has chosen to offer pre-orders for the CineShooter to allow for accurately gauging customer interest and ensuring that we manufacturer a volume of inventory that will prevent back-orders upon release.

The CineShooter head is available for pre-order IMMEDIATELY with a $250 deposit. This deposit secures your spot in line to receive your CineShooter Pan and Tilt Head as soon as they are available. Pre-orders also receive an additional $300 off the $2800 retail pricing of your head once we begin shipping.

Pre-Ordered CineShooters are expected to ship by September, and full production ramping up after initial delivery.

As units become available Kessler support will send you a quote for the remaining balance and once that quote has been paid your order will be placed into the shipping queue.

To secure your place in line and pay your deposit, add this item to a shopping cart and proceed through the checkout selecting "in-store pickup" as the shipping method.

NOTE: Only the CineShooter should be included on this order, if you would like to order additional accessories please place a second order for those items.

Born from the technology and architecture of our two wildly popular camera motion control systems, CineShooter was designed from the ground up as an entirely new ecosystem of camera movement that bridges the gap between the feature-rich, high performance and dependability of CineDrive, and the affordable, easy-to-use Second Shooter systems, all while riding the bleeding edge of this techology and advancing what is possible in camera motion control.

This nodal pan and tilt head is packed with features, including a variety of ways to power, control, program, and operate your camera moves… but this isn’t just another pan and tilt head.

This is a completely new kind of tool that is fully supported with an ecosystem of major accessories, as well as the support of several popular third party accessories and software previously unavailable on our motion control systems. CineShooter is an ideal choice for serious filmmakers looking for the best of both words— a hybrid motion control system that offers both affordability and high performance.
