position of stills ( front vs. top ) Can't Post

Hey All,

After a couple of years of video ( Currently Sony HC-5 with raynox .3, no intentions of replacing it for a couple of years) i'm interested in mounting my 350D on my vapor narrow as well.

I've tried searching the forums but was not able to produce a satisfying answer.

I'm currently in the process of building a top plate to mount the stills under. I prefer this to a L bracket to keel things as compact as possible.

Before i start cutting the freshly made plate i'm wondering if there is any advantage of mounting the stills camera next to the video.

I will probably not be taking the stills along on 2/3rd of the jumps. for now. The jump ship on the stills jumps will probably be a c206 so headroom is a bit sparse ( even without camera equipment :) )

I am aware of the balance issues if i mount it on front. When i do it I will probably need to move the video more forward to keep the stills lense out of view. creating even more of a balance issue.

If I Build it side-to-side, what are besides the balance improvements things i should know ? The helmet is a vapor narrow so the snag points are a bit more articulated. Any other negative ( or positive notes ? )

Witch setup is easier to maneuver in small aircraft ?

The CarbonFiber + GlassFiber top plate is currently wide enough to enable either one of these options.
