Overview

The Kessler Parallax™ system, with it's patent pending design, provides automatic panning and fixed-point shooting capabilities to the Kessler line of sliders. Previously only capable with motorized panning devices, Kessler Parallax™ accomplishes inward and outward panning shots, providing users a second axis to their linear movements. The Kessler Parallax’s™ non-intrusive design allows users to choose between automatic panning or standard linear sliding without removing the Parallax bar.

Kessler Parallax™ does not require specific measurement calibration and does not have a fixed subject distance requirement to accomplish 2 axis panning and fixed-point linear sliding shots. Capable of manual or motorized control.

Will be available for traveler and standard length Pocket Dolly v2.0 BASIC, Pocket Dolly v2.0, Stealth & Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly as well as the traveler, 3' & 5' CineSlider.

Wonderful Addition April 14, 2014
Reviewer: Jim Barcus from Kansas City, MO United States  
Very sturdy and a must have for all film makers. My only complaint is that there is no case for the Parallax and slider to be together.

Parallax Gets 5 Stars April 12, 2014
Reviewer: Steve P. from Columbus, OH United States  
I've just completed 15 interviews using the Parallax, and all I can say is it's amazing. I've used the slider for many previous interviews and the problem has always been keeping the subject in the same relative position in the frame. I was always concentrating on how to pivot the camera to keep the subject in the same relative position while sliding, and throwing away shots where I'd either pivot too fast or miss it completely.  I was trying to imagine how I could create a makeshift solution, when suddenly the Kessler folks had it all figured out.  Now, once it's set, I can easily get those slow moves that really bump production values. Next investment is a motor for the slider.

Need Kwik Release system April 9, 2014
Reviewer: Abraham Yang from Duluth, GA United States  
Maybe I received the correct screws, maybe I lost them, but you either need very long screws or the Kwik release system to attach this Parallax with a slider onto a Hercules head. The standard Kessler screws that come with your slider are not long enough to secure the slider + parallax onto the Hercules head. I screwed it all together with the Kessler screws and thought it was all secured, and then I grabbed my slider and the whole thing almost all fell onto the ground. Glad my assistant was right there.

Other than that, excellent parallax system. You can just keep the Parallax with the slider and align it properly to do normal slider shots, and when you need a parallax shot, you only need to adjust the parallax bar accordingly. Very convenient.

Blown away with this product. Love it. February 25, 2014
Reviewer: Dmitry Burenok from New Westminster, BC Canada  
From now on - everyone basically must have it with every slider. Instant setup. Accurate. Flexible. Purely mechanical - no electronics involved in action. Extremely well made. And it looks sexy. Would be great to have different set/length of "target control rail" to use it with different sliders.
