The ALZO Transformer DSLR Rig is a bracket designed for supporting a DSLR camera and all of the auxiliary equipment required for professional video capture. This device easily mounts to a video tripod or a 15mm rail system while allowing for unobstructed battery compartment access. Why is unobstructed battery access so important? When a DSLR is mounted to the bracket with a full complement of accessories like audio recorders, mixers, mics or other stuff, changing the battery should not require disassembling or unplugging cords. 9 mounting holes in the top bar provide many mounting options for optimal versatility. The end shoe mounts can be removed for mounting devices with 1/4 inch x 20 screw mounts; two comfortable hand grips offer secure handling and stability for hand-held shooting.

This rig can also be used with small camcorders as shown in the image below.  It is best to mount the camcorder with the rig reversed so that the camcorder is positioned on the right side, allowing an unimpeded swing of the LCD display.

This product carries an extended 5-year warranty.

The best choice.

I do not think there is anything better in the market and with an adjusted price, although here in Europe you have to pay VAT and local transport separately, in my case Spanish Post Office. Good material, easy tripod placement, easy grip, good accessory support. Happy with this very useful purchase. The good does not need many words.

Simple and effective

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!

Thank you!

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
