SmallRig 2017 Reviews

Doesn't Fit!

Utterly ridiculous how this is made by the same company as the cage for the same camera, yet, with the XLR Audio unit attached, the handle doesn't fit. How this hasn't happened to anyone else is beyond me.

Gear addition to the rig.

Great product. I like the adjustable height of the handle.

Will this work with the Smallrig BGH1 cage? THe DMW-XLR1 can also be used on the BHG1 and it looks like the BGH1 cage has the same mounting holes on the front.

We cannot test this combination but we are not seeing any red flags saying it will not work.
