If you want to become a HDSLR film maker you’ve got to love to shop. Choosing the right accessories is a crucial and enjoyable experience. Unless you want someone else to shop for you.
In contrast, if you’re on a budget and you want a basic but complete set to complement your HDSLR, you can just pick up the FlyPack2 and start shooting, it’s a good thing for the enthusiast.
The iKan FlyPack 2 comes with all the basic accessories you need, including a 5.6″ LCD, Sony battery and charger, sun hood, HDMI cable and a bag to hold them all. The iKan traveller bag is a good catch on its own- it can fit a 17″ laptop, a DSLR body, 2 lenses and accessories. The backpack even has a rain cover!
No more trying to compile a bunch of accessories from different manufacturers and hope they all work together. The iKan FlyPack 2 just might do the trick for you. Unless of course you want to go pro…
The feel of the HDSLR support rods and cage are a little too flimsy for my taste. The screws on the handles don’t lock on very tight. Furthermore, there are follow focus options in the bundle, making focusing a real hassle. I don’t see myself using the FlyPack2 for any projects. But then, I’m comparing it with the likes of specialists like RedRock Micro and Zacuto.
As a professional, I want something that’s a lot more sturdy and I don’t mind paying for it. I also want to choose my own accessories as this is part of the adventure. In contrast, if you’re on a budget and you want a basic but complete set to complement your HDSLR, you can just pick up the FlyPack2 and start shooting, it’s a good thing for the enthusiast.
