Featuring a variety of time saving design elements, this ELE-ENG Detachable Shoulder Mount Rig from ikan provides you with adjustable ENG style shoulder mounted support for your DSLR or camcorder. It includes a baseplate that can be mounted on your tripod via built-in 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 threaded mounting holes. The baseplate is also tapped to accept an optional Canon TA-100 tripod adapter for quick attachment to and release from a tripod head. A plug-in design that allows you to quickly connect/disconnect the shoulder support and pad to/from the baseplate. A built-in 1/4"-20 tie-down bolt with contoured thumbwheel and spring-loaded retractable locating pin allow you to mount virtually all DSLRs or camcorders to the baseplate.

The entire rig is made to be lightweight, and break down into three pieces for easy transport with your camera gear. The shoulder bar inserts into the baseplate, where it is held securely and without wobble, until you activate the release levers by squeezing. All parts that are meant to be manipulated are red, as opposed to the black color of the rest of the rig, for easy identification. The shoulder pad is reversible, so you can use it as a conventional shoulder support, or flip it so that it provides comfort while you pull the rig into your chest.

The baseplate features two rubberized grip strips that help keeps your camera from spinning on the baseplate.
Multiple 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded mounting holes allow you some balance adjustment.
You can attach an optional Canon TA-100 tripod adapter directly to the baseplate by the four tapped screw holes built-into the plate. You can also attach optional QR plates using the 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 screw holes.

    ELE-ENG Detachable Shoulder Mount Rig is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid but one caveat This will help my back out a lot with handheld shoots. Solid build enough for my Canon XF 205. However it advertises compatibility with the Canon TA-100 Tripod adapter. However the screw holes machined for plate are to small for the one Canon provided with the TA-100 so out of the box I could use the TA-100 and i will be shopping for screws that fit. Bummer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get Steadier Shots with Ikan's Detachable Shoulder Mount Rig Ikan's Detachable Shoulder Mount Rig is a nice edition to one's DSLR or small video camera kit. It enables one to have a more steady pose by more evenly distributing the weight on to one's shoulders. I recently had the opportunity to take this rig for a test drive and I think it's very good. It's made from high quality materials and is solid. The mounting plate detaches from the metal plate that then attaches to a shoulder pad. This enables one to disassemble and pack it in a confined space. The shoulder pad is reversible so it can rest on the back of one's shoulder or the front of one's shoulder. My one complaint is that the bolt that keeps the shoulder pad in place kept getting lose throughout the day as I was shooting. Every once in a while I had to tighten it. I think Ikan needs to add a rubber washer or come up with some kind of fix so the that bolt doesn't get lose all the time. Overall, this is good piece of equipment that solves one of the problems with DSLRs and small cameras: that they are hard to hold steady when shooting hand held. Larger, professional cameras are bigger and are designed to rest on one's shoulder so they can be held steady. This rig can help make your DSLR shooting look more professional by enabling one to have steadier shoots.
