ikan’s new series for filmmakers, The Drawing Board, covers a vast range of video production tools and showcases new and upcoming products. We aim to improve the quality of your productions and simplify your workflow.

When it comes to small to mid-sized camcorders and DSLR’s, stabilization and smooth camera movements are difficult to achieve with a handheld set-up. To take your footage to the next level and add professional refinement to your projects, ikan has developed two stabilizing solutions: The Hoverfly and The BumbleBee.

On our second episode of the Drawing Board, our host, George Tripsas, describes how to easily assemble and use both rigs for your shooting needs. The Hoverfly is a strong, single-handle shoulder rig that can be adjusted to comfortably fit your body using the rosette system; while the Bumblebee is a simple, handheld stabilizing solution that’s perfect for low sweeping shots.

Both rigs are durable and lightweight, and are perfect for the ENG or documentary style shooter. The H-plate supports small to mid-sized camcorders and has various mounting points for your camera.

We hope you enjoy the video and find it helpful. More episodes of The Drawing Board are on their way!
