Ikan Corp has announced its line up for NAB, including their popular Piatto lights, ELE-ENG Shoulder Rig, Fly-X3-PLUS phone gimbal and the VX9i 8.9 inch monitor. All this and more can be seen at NAB 2015 in booth C6537.
iKan’s Piatto line of lights make great accent lights that work particularly well for creating eyelight. They come in several sizes, including 6″ diameter (PL60), 9″ diameter (PL90), 7″ x 4″ (PL74), and a 10″ x 3″ (PL103), with different battery plate options for Canon, Panasonic and Sony batteries. The Piatto Lights have a readout on the back where you can see the color temperature and brightness level, which can be adjusted anywhere from 10% to 100%. The lights come with standard 1/4-20 mounts, and gel clips around the edge. The lights are all available now, and prices range from $249 to $379, with $249 for the PL74, $279 for the PL103, $279 for the PL60, and $379 for the PL90.
The newly released ELE-ENG is a detachable shoulder rig support system for the ENG and event videographer. With solid aluminum construction, it’s designed for quick assembly and quick camera mounting. A lightweight, portable shoulder rig solution that fits easily in your camera bag. It also features a reversible shoulder pad and snap lock system that makes for a no tool setup. The ELE-ENG starts at $249.
The FLY-X3-PLUS Gimbal Stabilizer from Ikan turns your mobile phone or GoPro camera into a powerful image capture tool, shooting fluid professional video and eliminating shaky camera moves. The unique 3-axis brushless motor gyro system uses sophisticated software to stabilize your smartphone or GoPro, and makes pans, tilts and even walking shots appear to “fly.” Complicated steady rigs are difficult to balance but the FLY-X3-PLUS is easy to set up and operate. Simply place your smartphone in the cradle with your lens to the left, then level the FLY-X3-PLUS and turn on. The motors will level within a few seconds, and you’re ready to shoot.
The Fly-X3-PLUS is available for $379.
Debuting at NAB 2015 will be Ikan’s newest production monitor, the 8.9 inch VX9i, featuring dazzling imagery generated by an IPS LCD panel with 1920×1200 resolution. The monitor is also configured with waveform as the VX9w.
Tilta Technology will also be at the Ikan booth to show their cage systems for the Sony FS7 and a7S. They’ll also be introducing the TMax follow focus and their wearable “Armor Man” stabilizer/gimbal system.
