Overview: The Stealth ENG (ELE-STLH-ENG) from ikan is a shoulder-mount
system for professional camcorders, such as the
Canon XF305 and
others, as well as many high-end DSLRs that are used for shooting high
definition movies. It consists of two major parts: the ELE-SSM Shoulder Mount
and the ELE-LBP camcorder base plate. The system also includes a battery
mounting plate and a handle.
Shoulder Mount: The ELE-SSM Shoulder Mount has three 3" square,
adjustable/removable shoulder pads. You can adjust the angle of the outer pads
so they fit you perfectly, allowing you hours of comfort, even with a heavy
camera. The mount is adjustable laterally, side-to-side, horizontally, or
vertically. Once you have adjusted the mount to your liking, you can lock it
into place with the provided Allen wrenches. The shoulder mount has multiple
accessory mounting points with 1/4", 3/8", and M4-7 threads, as well as

manufacturers, including the 62mm ikan Battery Mount and the Anton Bauer mount.
The 2-15/16" x 4-7/8" plate has a double set of screw holes so you can mount two
batteries in some cases. The plate can be mounted to the Shoulder Mount on the
top or the back using any of four available pairs of mounting holes.
Camcorder Base Plate: The ELE-LBP Camcorder Base Plate is designed to
accommodate any mid-sized or hybrid camcorder, or DSLR camera. The top of the
base plate has multiple screw patterns for optional quick-release mounting
plates, such as the Canon
TA100 or the ikan ELE-WDGL. The base plate has two 15mm rods (each 12" in
length) that fit into the rod clamps on the Shoulder Mount. The plate slides
forward or backward along the rods to let you adjust the camcorder or camera to
the most comfortable position, and locked into place with four thumbscrews. The
included handle (ELE-HDLE) clamps onto the end of either rod to give you a good
