ikan ELE-RECOIL overview

  • 1Description

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".

    ikan ELE-RECOIL reviews

    Recoil Camera Stabilizer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 60.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoulder support I looked at a lot of different products before deciding to go with this one. I was a little sceptical at first because of the low price but I couldn't be happier! It helps a lot with stabilization and takes a lot of unnescessary strain off my arms. Some people have complained that your breathing will make the camera rise and fall. I think that is because they are not wearing the mount right. There is actually a spring that absorbs the motion of normal breathing (maybe not if you just ran a mile and are breathing supper hard) but as long as you don't extend the chest support arm past the shock absorbing spring you should be fine. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my first support rig This is the first stabilizer I have purchased, and I have got to say that for the price, it was great. I use mostly prime lenses on my Canon and this really helped get rid of most of the shake. Granted it wont completely solve the issue, but with some practice and smooth handling it definitely helps a lot. Its also great if you plan on adding anything i.e a follow focus and rail system, they left lots of room. So for a first rig I would highly recommend this to the beginner. And for the pro it would make a great backup.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from making a rifle stock for my camera I bought this to be used like a rifle stock for a camera to be used on boats. Folded so the two arms are together it is comfortable and beefy enough to hold the camera more still than if I try hand-holding the camera sideways. I still need a knurled knob to screw the camera down. Unfortunately the stock has the wrong screw and thread, but I have a machinist who can make it. Used in the normal design with the hook over the shoulder and the flat piece against the chest it would be too fixed for shooting up or down quickly and would require bending backwards or forwards, which is tough to do on a rolling boat for any length of time and is very unsteady.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for What It Can Accomplish If you use DSLR cameras for video, this is a really excellent item. If you aren't getting a 15-/17-mm rod system for customization for your DSLR, and are just looking for a shoulder mount, this rig gives you great feel and stability for all-day use for that hand-held-but-not-too-shaky look. The only negative for me is that at the end of a long day, if you're using heavy lenses (e.g. Canon L-Series lenses) it will become strenuous. So take care of your back. I use it on my shoulder and also I take it off the shoulder and hold it at my waist, and that works well too. The other nice thing is that it is very quick to set up, and very quick to adjust.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hold your breath...for a very long time. This product might work for you, but it sure didn't for me. It might just be because, I can't hold my breath for a very long time. Let say for 2 days! Ok, I might be exaggerating, but I really had a hard time stabilizing my shots using this product. I used it to shoot a 2-days indian wedding. It worked about less than 20mins, but after that, my shots got too shaky, because I started getting uncomfortable and catching my breath using it. Plus, my 5D MK II wasn't seemed secured. I was kind of worried the whole time I was using it that my camera might come off and fall. So yes, I returned this item back. Again, it might work for you, but it didn't for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the money... This shoulder support is very reasonable in price, and yet quite effective. I purchased a Redrock shoulder support for $550, and spent in total over $850 adding rod clamps and other accessories to make it more confortable. in the end it turned out to be worse, and takes time to set it up. This shoulder support is quite good, it is easier for you to record for longer periods of time since it takes off some weight from your arms. The shoulder pad is not the best, it can get uncomfortable, but its adjustable. I use a camera configuration that is not listed on the manual, and works great. overall Is great, if you don't want to spend on over priced shoulder supports go for this cost effective option.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally Some Stability in My Life! I'm actually pretty surprised by this rig. It's low price-point was concerning to me, but it really hasn't shown to be an issue thus far. The rig is made mainly of plastic, so it's lightweight, but does have some give to it with all the extensions attached. However, I found that while using it with a DSLR, full extension isn't really necessary. I also like the fact that this is a resistive rig rather than weighted--which for long shoots is a HUGE plus. Folds up for easy storage and came with a little storage bag too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I LOVE my Ikan Recoil! I love the Recoil - it's light, well-priced, seems pretty robust so far , and folds reasonably small for transportation.I use this with a Sony A55 and Sigma 24-60 f2.8 and it supports this on it's own, leaving my hands free if I need to reach into my camera bag...Loses one star because the foam pad that sits on your chest will very quickly get cracked open where it overlaps by the sharp edge of the plastic part it is attached to. I luckily noticed this before it got too severe and glued on a reinforcing layer of dense foam. But despite this i have to say I am having a lot of fun and creative kicks with this device.
