    This group buy is now closed.
    Thanks to all for participating.


    For those who don't know them, Kessler Crane makes some great camera support equipment, amongst them a very good camera slider, the CineSlider. I like them for the versatility they offer; you can use them horizontally and vertically, change the drag settings, yet they are still portable. They can be motorized either for live-action or for time-lapses with motion. They have a solid build quality and can take anything from a DSLR to a fully fitted RED One, with a load capacity up to 80lbs.

    There have been group buys with them in the past, and since I want to buy one I inquired if they were interested in a new round. They are.

    Please don't ask for a larger rebate, Kessler Crane is a relatively small shop and 15% is a great offer on an already great price.

    We now have way more than the required 10 people, but you can still join. Ordering has started, and the special code will work until Friday. You can still join, but please don't do it at the last minute — experience proves that things can and will go wong (like yesterday, when my internet went in the whole area). Please see post #33 for details.

    List price for the 3ft version is 1.200 USD - with a 15% rebate 1.020 USD
    List price for the 5ft version is 1.700 USD - with a 15% rebate 1.445 USD

    Update: The discount will also apply to the drop down options listed under the “CHOOSE YOUR OPTIONS” section of the product page.

    Update II: I PM'd everyone with the code. Check you inbox. Happy shopping :)

    I'm not making any money off this (besides the 15% I'll be saving.)



    I'll update the list. Please post if you want to participate, stating which length you would prefer.

    Been using my 3 foot Kessler Cineslider for a while now. Highly recommended. Pretty much comes with me on every shoot. Highly considering getting the 5 footer with this deal.

    I'll take a 5ft one but might not be able to purchase it till next month due to my Epic-X arriving earlier than i thought.
