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.
WATER BOTTLE COUNTERWEIGHT
The ALZO Horizontal Camera Mount has a grooved end opposite the camera mount end that can be used to hang a counterweight 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.
