ALZO Horizontal Camera Mount Applications

OVERHEAD PHOTOGRAPHY

The demonstration on the left shows the ALZO HCM mounted to an ALZO Ball Head Tripod over the ALZO 300 Table Top Studio. The HCM is positioning the camera over the ALZO 24 inch platform. This combination is perfect for shadowless overhead photography. The camera includes an articulating LCD display for easy image framing.

   

CAMERA INSIDE PHOTO TENT

In this tent product imaging application, the ALZO Horizontal Camera Mount allowed us to shoot overhead inside the ALZO photo tent. The camera articulating LCD viewfinder allows for easy image preview.

In this application, a wireless shutter release is essential as it is difficult to access the camera shutter inside the tent.

   

WATER BOTTLE COUNTER WEIGHT

The ALZO Horizontal Camera Mount has a grooved end opposite the camera mount end that can be used to hang a counter weigh to balance the rig and stabilize the camera. We recommend using a water bottle and string as this allows for easy weight adjustment for perfect balance adjustments.
