Overview

This is a 3-axis bundle perfect for motion controlled sliding, panning & tilting.

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.

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.



3-Axis Control
Each unit is capable of controlling up to 3 axes: Slide, Pan & Tilt.

3 Speed/Torque Options
Easily switch the motor speed/torque (power) for the Slider motor via the quick-change pulley system. (3 options for CineSlider, Philip Bloom and Stealth) (2 options for Pocket Dolly v2.0, Shuttle Pod & Shuttle Pod Mini)

Keyframeable Positions
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.

Built-in Intervalometer
Trigger your camera in time-lapse or stop-motion modes with the built-in intervalometer located on the controller.

Built-in Flashlight
Easily turn an LED light on at anytime.

CANbus Connection
A CANbus connection is provided for future expansion or add-on devices (ex: more axes, i/o ports, joystick controller, etc.)

Compact Design
Second Shooter's small footprint allows it to fit nicely into existing camera bags and eliminates the need for additional cases. Separate the Pan from the Tilt axis to use independently or for easier travel. Every piece is modular.

Micro USB Port
No need to send your system in for firmware upgrades. With the Micro USB port, you can now easily upgrade firmware.

Bubble Level
Recessed bullseye level installed in the Pan axis.

Magnalink™ Connection
Store the Second Shooter controller on the slider motor or other mounting accessories using the recessed magnets for a clean setup.

Well constructed February 7, 2015
Reviewer: Ramesh Krishnamurthy from Geneva, Geneva Switzerland  
This is a very good product for the price. The motor noise is a bit high.

Kessler Srcond Shooter January 10, 2015
Reviewer: Alasdair Smith from Glasgow, Lanarkshire United Kingdom  
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! December 16, 2014
Reviewer: Lasse Henning from Gjerdrum, Akershus Norway  
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 shoot December 6, 2014
Reviewer: Steve Townsend from Bristol, Avon United Kingdom  
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 Simple December 4, 2014
Reviewer: Darren (Last name withheld because I'm embarrassed from Kahului, HI United States  
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.
