Featuring 360 degree rotation, an invertible camera platform for under or over slung camera positions, a two arm design for maximum stability and built with high-grade anodized aluminum the Kessler Crane is as robust as it is functional. Easily broken down for transportation and uses standard household style weights to achieve proper balance.

Configurable for Your Needs
The Kessler Crane is available in a variety of sizes and configurations. The KC-12 crane can also be configured as an 8ft Crane. Other lengths are available with either the 5.5ft short tip or the 18ft upgrade kit.
