ikan announced these products recently and I'm a tiny bit slow getting them out – sorry!

ikan Elements: it’s all about the “rig”!

The widespread popularity of smaller DSLRs and the new hybrid, cinema style cameras has introduced a number of new camera and accessory mounting challenges.

In addition to basic stabilization, shooters also need ergonomic and efficient ways to accommodate monitors, lights, lens controls, microphones, recorders, supplemental power, and a variety of other additional accessories.

Welcome to ikan Elements – the most adaptable camera support and accessory mounting equipment on the planet.

The Elements product line provides a variety of cost-effective stabilization and accessory mounting solutions. Elements products are available either as pre-configured kits or individual, single components to address about any situation you might encounter.

One of the standout features of the Elements line is its adaptability. There is just so much you can do with them!  You might select a certain kit for a specific need but, once you get it in hand and start putting it all together, you’ll realize the variety of configuration options you have. Position the grips above the camera for one situation, and then try them below for another. Set the base plate forward to mount one camera then backward to accommodate a larger one.


It’s easy and affordable to expand on your Elements investment. Add a piece here, move a piece there. It's all designed around established industry specifications, allowing you to easily mix and match components – even those from other manufacturers.

There are a number of rig system brands available but we challenge you to find another as adaptable, effective or as AFFORDABLE as the ikan Elements.
