ikan's Flyweight DSLR Offset Shoulder Rig Kit, is a lightweight, modular support rig designed to work with any DSLR or small to mid-sized camcorder. Made of anodized aluminum, the Flyweight DSLR Offset rig has a unique offset design that makes it easy to shoot video using your camera's LCD display. It also has vertical adjustments available in two locations, which makes it easy to position your camera at eye level, critical when using an external viewfinder or loupe.

The Flyweight Offset uses the same foundation as the Basic kit--two foam-grip handles, two attaching, movable arms, and base plate--and adds the offset piece, which allows you to choose to have your camera at eye-level or below eye, as well as having the camera right in front of you, or in the opposite direction. With a quick twist of the thumb screws and a re-tighten, the grip handles can be moved closer in or further away from the crossblocks--positioning the handles wherever you'd like them. These provide added flexibility to the rig, affording greater control over camera balance and placement while allowing the use of additional accessories.

Completely configurable for cameras past, present and future, this rig is an affordable, future-proof investment in support gear that will evolve and grow from one production to the next, for years to come.

Fully adjustable to your shooting needs, the offset element piece can be used for several variations. It can be set to where the camera is perfectly eye level or below eye level. With the offset piece, you can also offset your camera to where the camera is right in front of you or in the complete opposite direction.
The base plate height can be adjusted to be higher or lower, giving you more latitude for shooting.
The grip handles can easily move closer in or further away from the crossblocks, and with a quick twist of the thumb screws and re-tighten, you can position the grip handles anyway you see fit.

    ikan ELE-OFLY reviews

    Flyweight DSLR Offset Shoulder Rig Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond My Expectations Just finished using this piece of equipment on its first project. For the price, I am very impressed with its quality; it's quite sturdy and well built. Cons: 1) It is a pain to reach the tightening nut for the camera plate. Make sure you have a quick release plate that you can attach to this rig and leave on indefinitely so that you don't have to mess with this all the time 2) The handles have to be exceedingly tight in order to prevent angle drift, but it can be done. 3) The large L angle of the shoulder brace is ergonomically helpful, but takes up a lot of space when packing. Despite these cons, I'm extremely pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Corrected Negative Review I previously left a negative review on this rig. I would like to update my review. After contacting B&H and being told I would have to return rig for replacement. I contacted IKAN direct. Am I ever glad I did. Super service to correct defective part. All I had to do was send a video clip of defective Part. Ikan quickly sent out replacement part, along with some extra adjusting Screws. The rig is up & running giving me great Video. I cannot express how great IKan was to remedy defective Part

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weights The rig looks, feels and works well overall. My only complaint is the weight bag. They need to re-design this part of the rig. First it comes without weights, it's just the bag and a strap. Second the strapping system does not work well, it tends to come loose and move around making it difficult to keep the rig balanced. I like the rig but I need to find a better weight system for it, unfortunately. If anybody out there has any imput please let everyone know. Thanks

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a charm I used it to shoot the Dragon capsule recovery and it performed exactly like I needed it, stable footage on a boat in rough seas. The only issue was that even though I showered it in fresh water every time it got doused by sea water the hex screws are showing corrosion, none of the main pieces, just the hex screws.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I bough this because of the awesome offset which is a lot better than any of the straight shoulder rights out there right now since the LCD is right in front of me and I can clearly see whats going on without hurting my eyes. Turning my head or buying an external monitor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Shoulder Rig Love the offset feature, makes it way easier to view a dslr display, or works great with a viewfinder attachment to a dslr. The product is sturdy and comfortable. Definitely needs enough counterweight especially because of the offset design. Great buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price you can't go wrong The Flyweight DSLR Offset Shoulder Rig by Ikan is cheap; it works well and will get the job done. The rigs handles constantly need tighten, that is what cheap gets you. I also recommend buying a Quick-Release plate/Quick-Release Clamp.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, locked & loaded The Ikan Flyweight works great. I've actually taken off the offset piece and compacted the whole thing a bit more for balance. With my onboard monitor it works great. Very compact and balanced now.
