The brand-new Kessler TLS (Time Lapse System) is the world’s most versatile time-lapse centric camera slider and motion control product. Built on the premise that the needs of time-lapse shooters are unique and vary dramatically, TLS aims to be the most configurable time-lapse unit available today. Its extremely sturdy and affordable 80/20 rail system comes in a variety of lengths allowing users to have a perfect size for every scenario and its ease of assembly allows for changes on-the-fly.

By integrating with Second Shooter, TLS combines a popular rail design with an already proven world-class product to control camera movement. Current Second Shooters can use existing components, such as their Second Shooter controller, Pan and Tilt head, FIZ motors and other Second Shooter accessories with TLS. By having the slider motor integrated with the camera cart as well as mounting the Second Shooter controller and MagPak to the cart via Magnalink, the TLS stays compact and organized.

Designed in conjunction with time-lapse professionals around the world, TLS is the result of a collaborative development approach that leveraged years of manufacturing and in-the-field experience to produce an affordable and feature-rich product perfect for the time-lapse community.
