NAB 2012: Ikan unveil new USB remote grip prototype for Canon DSLRs

By site editor Dan Chung:

It seems like Ikan have been busy creating new gadgets for this NAB. One that they have let out of the bag early is this prototype wired electronic remote grip for Canon DSLRs.

It can start/stop, zoom to check focus and adjust other camera settings using USB protocols – in a similar way to other manufacturers like OKii.

What is different is the form factor – it is designed to be used as a handle on DSLR rig and has a 1/4 20 threaded socket on the top to allow attachment.

Ikan have not said when the grip will go into production or given pricing details. Hopefully the finished product won’t be in the rather odd purple colour though.
