The Kessler Crane KC-8 Crane system, is a versatile crane system available for rent at Camera Hire. Many consider the KC-Lite to be the one of the best budget friendly crane systems for lighter camera bodies, such as DSLRs or the FS700 / C300 etc.
The KC-Lite is 100% tool-less, a single rail crane that is light and portable without compromising the structural rigidity of the design. This crane has three different modes of operation; automatic, fixed-angle mode and manual tilt. The user is able to maximise stability, by utilising the fluid drag of the head’s pan and tilt offering excellent smoothness in the movements.
