ikan ELE-RECOIL Overview

The ikan Recoil Camera Stabilizer offers a lightweight, affordable solution to keeping your DSLR or camcorder stable during handheld shooting. Its ergonomic design and adjustable chest brace allow it to fit comfortably over your body, while the interchangeable mounting platforms make either a video or still camera equally at home. And with the Elements foam handgrip, you get additional stability and control when shooting video with a DSLR.

The stabilizer's camera tie-down screw extends between 1/4 and 9/16" above the camera platform. The tie-down screw height is adjustable and allows you to attach a side variety of cameras to the stabilizer. Composed of high-density plastic and weighing 2 lb, the entire Recoil unit folds up neatly for easy storage.

Affordable & Ergonomic
Affordability and comfort have never been synonymous with camera shoulder rigs--until now. The Recoil is smooth and easy to use, with a shoulder piece that "hooks" to your body. And with the adjustable chest brace, the camera's weight is evenly distributed across your frame.
Perfect for Your Camera
Whether your camera of choice is an HMC-150, a Canon 5D Mark II, Sony NEX-VG10 or another prosumer camera, you're covered with the Recoil. The included large baseplate and riser baseplate give you flexibility and adjustability, no matter your preferred form factor, for any camera weighing up to 10 pounds. Even weight distribution and a stable camera platform will keep you shooting for hours on end. A built-in adjustment wheel allows you to vary the length of the tie-down screw from 1/4 to 9/16".

question

Do you think I can use this with my Runin M to help with the weight of it ?
Asked by: Luis J.
I don't think there's anyway this would be able to be compatible with the Ronin-M. I'd save up for the Ronin body mount. It ain't cheap, but it's gonna be your best solution.

question

Would this help with hand-held macro shots done with heavier lenses?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Recoil can help, but keep in mind that all of the support comes from contact on the shoulder and torso. For macro work, this could limit your positioning if you still want it to remain effective, or at least will mean that positioning will need to be done using the torso more than the hands and arms.

question

Do think this could work with the DJI Osmo Pro?
Asked by: Anonymous
It should attach easily to the 1/4-20 mount on the bottom of the OSMO.

question

Does this afford sufficient stability for the operator not to constantly hold onto it...or does one or two hands always have to be in contact w/ either the device or the camera?
Asked by: Mitchell
We do not recommend taking hands off of any stabilizer, whether it be a Recoil or a full-on gimbal, unless there is at least one redundant safety measure in place. The contact the Recoil has with the shoulders and torso adds a measure of stabilization to shots, but is not meant to be the sole provider of support. As such, when the Recoil is in use, please be sure to keep at least one hand on the unit to support the camera.

question

Is this stabilizer comes with a strap?
Asked by: Anonymous
Shopper, Unfortunately it does not. Hoewever, Ikan does have a slightly upgraded version that does include the strap. Here is a link <a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/910730-REG/ikan_ele_recoil_rld_recoil_reloaded_cam_support.html target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/910730-REG/ikan_ele_recoil_rld_recoil_reloaded_cam_support.html</a> It is called the Recoil Reloaded. Thanks for your interest!
