DSLR HD video tripods and fluid video head hire

Kessler Crane K-Pod tripod system with Hercules 2.0 head hire

Main features and specs:

The Kessler K-Pod System™ is a revolutionary tripod camera system designed to support camera cranes / jibs. The K-Pod™ has extremely rigid double strut legs with the patent pending incremental Posi-Lock System™, that friction locks the legs, as well as interlocks into incremental lock pockets. The lock pockets allow you to equally position the legs while providing a lock that can not slip down.
The Kessler "Hercules 2.0" Head is designed specifically for use with Kessler Crane gear. Hercules 2.0 now has panning drag control and with quick plate is an excellent head to mount your camera to, when not using your crane. Mounts to your tripod using a 100mm levelable ball mount, 75mm fixed ring mount, or a flat mount. No quick plate is used to mount your crane to the "Hercules 2.0", so you get an ultra stable connection.
K-Pod tripod system and Hercules 2.0 head are now available for hire from RENTaCAM Sydney.
