  1. IKAN…Tell me… how do I change the battery quickly?

    I think the answer is IKAN’T

  2. Cfreak, When using a rig, it is a good idea to attach a quick release plate. 1. Quick set up and clean up. 2. Access to memory card/ battery slots. 3. i can swap it to a jib or other support on the fly. I have The super-fly. and i use it with the manfrotto 577 around 50 bucks at [email protected]:// It really makes life simple.
