Buying a ring sight set up - what parts are needed? Can't Post

I'm planning on buying a ring sight set up for my camera helmet.

I am going to get a Newton Cross Sight and the schumacher removable articulated bracket. Does the removable bracket come with something to join the cross sight's post to the removable bracket's post?

Or is that what the swivel clamp thing is for?

Yep, You'll need a swivel clamp too. That is what allows you to "sight" the ringsight.

nylon screws for the mount. If you break screws when mounting the setup, get new nylon screws. Dont put metal screws.

Try to contact Mike from Chutingstar,
I'm sure he can give you all the answers,
He helped me with a camera helmet setup including 2 camera mount and a ringsight.
He did a great job!

I like to do business with the guy who is out there traveling the boogie circuit and giving out free information even when you don't buy something from him.

He is also very quick to give valuable information on this site.

His service is impecabble and he really knows cameras and how to set them up for skydiving.

His name is Trunk at http://gethypoxic.com

You won't regret doing business with him. He's been helping me for years and I don't even buy that much from him.
