Looking for a good rig for my cameras

Hello everyone!

I am trying to find a good rig to use with my Sony a99 and Sony FDR-AX 100

I want something that doesnt need to use the hotshoe mount since I will have my XLR adapter plugged into the hotshoe. I will need to be able to mount the XLR adapter, an LED light, and possibly an LCD from time to time.

I have used the Alzo Video rig before: Amazon.com : ALZO Transformer DSLR Rig : Photographic Studio Equipment : Camera & Photo

Its nice for DSLR's but it was a bit hard for me to use the AX-100 on it beecause of the two handles which makes me think I need something with just 1 handle like this: Amazon.com : Sony - VCT 55 LH Adapter : Slr Digital Cameras : Camera & Photo

I am open to all suggestions. The rig needs to be able to mount onto a tripod, and Also would be nice if I can fit my DSLR with battery grip into it.

Thanks!

I use this one, a slightly modified rig which is very light, small and can carry quite some accessories:
