This is the only DSLR rig we have ever used. I can mount my camera, two lav mic receivers, a field recorder and a boom mic. The grips are helpful for handheld shooting. The battery cutout is so great. We love this rig!
Describe Yourself: Professional Videographer
Thank you for creating the Transformer rig, one of the most simple, creative and elegant solutions for my DSLR rig. The battery cutout is a simple, thoughtful solution to a necessary evil, and the construction is superb. Not too light, not too heavy, it handles (pun intended) like a dream and works well with my minimalist style. And to top it off, not only is the Transformer rig the perfect solution for the way I work, it's also an economical solution as well.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
