Helmet for stills, Sony CX and GoPro Can't Post

Hey y'all,

Need some advice please. I'm looking at buying a helmet that can either have a Canon stills camera or Sony CX on top, with a GoPro mounted on the forehead on some type of bracket. Does anyone have such a config?

Thanks for the help.

Cheers,
Jacques

A flattop pro or flattop narrow (for a topmount CX) would work for that config out of the box.

But have you taken a look around in the photography forum yet?

Hi there,

Cheers for the reply. Yip, was about to move over to Photo, thought I try Gear first.

Blues,

here's a pic of my helmet. not maybe the best angle, but you'll get the idea..

gopro is mounted with:

the clip part is screwed away and rest is bolted inside the helmets forehead. it was also modded a bit with sandpaper to not feel unpleasant through the padding to my forehead.

you can't see the gopro on sonys video, but it's really close that it would.

cam on top is cx115 with baby death lens.

Taken from the photography forum from a buy named BASE1179

Personally I find this the perfect setup with perhaps a change of camera and lens though preferable with Nikon or Canon Wink

The setup you're asking for can easily be done with for instance a Tonfly 2X helmet combined with the Zkulls Hero Overkill mount..

See pics here:
http://www.chutingstar.com/...kill-dual-mount.html
and here if you want more options on the mount, by using the Zkulls Hero Overkill PRO mount, here:
http://www.chutingstar.com/...rkill-pro-mount.html

The Tonfly helmets are, IMO, by far the comfiest helmets I have ever tried, but as helmets are put on your melon they are prone to the individual shape of it.. try before you buy!

Alex.
