The ikan Elements Fingerling Kit is a simple, sturdy handheld support system for a video DSLR camera. Composed of easy-to-assemble parts, the modular Fingerling Kit can accept new parts to grow and adapt to your changing needs. The hand grips are the operator's points of contact with the rig. The angle between the grips is adjustable. By holding the foam grips while keeping an index finger free, the operator can manipulate the focus and zoom rings of a lightweight DSLR lens. With one hand free, he or she can access menu settings, stop/start record, or perform any other camera operation.
Elements attach to each other by way of either industry-standard 15mm rods or 1/4" screws. Parts are aluminum with a powder-coated black finish. The dual hand grips have an additional dense foam covering. A 1/4" steel screw with a plastic, hand-tightening nut secures your DSLR camera to the cheese plate. The cheese plate also attaches to the 15mm rod mount, which accepts the included 4" 15mm rods. Handgrips, topped by rod adapters, also slide onto the rods. Every kit element is tightened easily with thumbscrews.
