The Kenworthy/Nettmann Snorkel System has been a problem-solver since its debut. The remote use of a periscopic lens and miniature tilting mirror allows your creativity to come to life and literally think outside the box.
The periscope of the camera gives you fluid movement in difficult, hard to reach places such as stationary or moving vehicles, and in tight spaces where a normal camera can’t travel such as the inside of a telephone booth, shower stall or miniature sets. It is a remote image-taking system with operator and camera components removed from the shooting area. Most productions will try to use a standard 2 axis head with a periscopic lens where you need to tilt down 90 degrees to achieve your shot – which results in losing your ability to tilt.
Another advantage of our Snorkel System is that your operator retains all functions of the camera’s movement, tilt, pan and roll. These functions all happen on the prism as if it were perfectly nodal. These systems work extremely well with the new ALEXA or RED digital cameras. There is nearly no learning curve with the K/N Snorkel – it just works.
