Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online.

Peaking - The VL5 is equipped with both Monochrome and Color Peaking features which highlight the desired focus area in a bright, silver outline. The operator adjusts the focus control until the silver indicator outlines on the desired area are razor sharp, indicating optimal focus. For the best results, be sure the subject is properly exposed.
Blue Gun - Blue Gun allows you to quickly calibrate your monitor to ensure the image you’re seeing on the monitor is exactly the same color that your camera is shooting. It does this by isolating the blue color signal and when displaying a set of standard NTSC color bars, a set pattern will emerge allowing for precise calibration.

Whether you are shooting with a Canon, Panasonic or Sony DV camera, ikan has you covered. Simply specify which battery plate you would like (Your choice of either the Sony L, Sony BP-U, Canon 900, Canon LP-E6+ or Panasonic D54 series batteries) and you will receive a complete, self-powered HDSLR field monitor with the quality and reliability you have come to expect from ikan.
