ikan PD1-N overview

  • 1Description

The ikan Remote Air 2 Single Channel Wireless Lens Control System (PD Movie) combines the receiver into the lens motor for reducing the weight, and its brushless motor can drive various professional camera lenses such as the Angenieux, Arri Ultra/Cooke. It offers a resolution of 7200 after optimization. The system divides the hand wheel of the controller into 7200 levels, and each small turn is displayed on the OLED screen.

The Remote Air 2 displays the current channel in use. With a short press of the ON/OFF Channel button, you can easily change the channels. The screen also displays the signal strength of the Hand Control Unit and the receiver when interworking. It also displays the percentage of battery remaining on the controller and the receiver's voltage.

The follow focus's marking ring achieves automatic decimal alignment simultaneously when it is attached to the controller rotary table. You can quickly mark the stroke scale with the magnetic attachment and the Remote Air's automatic stroke detection function. When you use a new lens, you can save previously aligned marking rings to be used later.

The Remote Air 2 uses 2.4 GHz wireless technology and a full duplex mode for signal transmission. It features anti-interference and error correction functions and offers a transmission range of up to 328'. The system can be charged via USB or a portable power source. It offers a battery life of up to 30 hours and standby time of 30 days.

    ikan PD1-N reviews

    Remote Air 2 Single Channel Wireless Lens Control System (PD Movie) is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wireless follow focus I direct and shoot music videos professionally and I was able to use this wireless follow focus on a few music videos before. It’s my go to wireless follow focus as it’s reliability is something I’ve been searching for a long time. I love how I can power it via d-tap on my RED Scarlet-W or off which ever gimbal I’m using like the DJI Ronin or Movi Pro stabilizer. I wasn’t able to use the secondary wheel that I would have use to change the zoom or on the aperture wheel of the lens but definitely going to try that out soon. The battery for the remote takes a while to charge but it can last for a really long time so definitely “handy”. Love this wireless follow focus!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Takes a while to get used to, but it works. I bought this because I'm an AC and of course having your own equipment increases your value exponentially. This one caught my eye because it was cheap and I couldn't afford to keep breaking other people's DJI Focus motors. So far I've used this on a feature length film, a short film, a music video, a documentary and a commercial on everything from the Rokinon cine line to Cooke S4/i lenses and it hasn't failed me yet. ( I should mention I've had two DJI Focus motors break on me). The motor is quiet unlike the Cinegears LCS so you'll have no complaints from sound department. The motor clamp is bulletproof rock solid. Once you tighten it, the motor will not throw itself off the lens (assuming the camera itself is secure, I suggest mounting camera with two screws). The clamp is 19mm and comes with an adapter ring that fits 15mm rods perfectly. The battery on the controller lasts all day, I've never had it go below 60% on 12-14+ hour shoots. It's also pretty cool that I can monitor on camera power source voltage from the controller. As for the cons, there is no manual calibration like on a DJI Focus, hence it can only work on lenses with hard stops, so your freewheel stills lenses are out of the question here. Also, the device isn't as intuitive as something like a DJI Focus and the lack of menus or a significant amount of function buttons means that all functions are punched in through various sequences of button taps of one of the 3 buttons that do exist. What this means is that it's pretty easy to accidentally change a channel or something from an errant button press when handling the camera. This is pretty annoying, but once you're used to the system, you learn to troubleshoot pretty quickly and remain mindful of it. To further complicate the lack of intuition, the instructions are OK at best, but not quite adequate. I've had to write up my own companion instructions and troubleshooting list to throw in the kit for rentals which I will share here. Ikan/PD Movie Remote Air 2 LCS Instructions: Attach antennae to both devices (big antenna is not usually needed on controller). Plug motor into D-tap power source. To power on, hold power button on corresponding device for 2 seconds or till screen powers on. Make sure controller and motor are on the same channel. To change channel on either device, single press power button on corresponding device to cycle through channels. To calibrate, hold nerve button for 5 seconds. Make sure light on motor is red. Double tap motor power button to cycle through colours (blue-green-red). Check controller screen for asterisk beside motor position number (number should change as you spin wheel). If asterisk is present then soft stops are on. Press nerve button once to turn off and regain full range of lens. Do two full turns on controller. If still unresponsive, reboot motor. To reverse direction, press nerve button 5 times. To set soft stops, turn wheel to one extreme of your focus pull, press nerve once. Turn wheel to other extreme of your pull. Press nerve once. Asterisk should appear on screen next to motor position indicator. To turn off soft stops, press nerve once more.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work. The motor didn't work right from the start -- when I pressed the Nerve button, it kept spinning at high RPM with high torque, ignoring the hard stops on the lens, I thought it was going to damage the lens. Then, it wouldn't spin at all. Then, it would spin again like crazy, and so on, and so on. I spent couple of hours checking the knowledge base online, but nothing helped. So, I had to return the unit. Waste of time.
