X-shut for still cameras Can't Post

Wondering if anyone has used the xshut for mounting still cameras. Also if anyone has installed them into a curved surface.

I use the X-Shut top mounted to hold the Nikon D200 for tandem stills, however mounted in a Tonfly camera helmet with a flat surface. Works perfect for hundreds of jumps so far.
Some friends have an X-Shut mounted in a Paratec Freezr full face helmet. They use only GoPros mounted on it but from the footage I have seen and from their comments, they are happy with it.

I am using one for my still mount on my FTP. The front plate is almost flat, but has a slight curve. I have it flush mounted (with the integration kit). Only jumped it maybe 20 jumps with the setup, but so far so good.

Post your question in the German forum (Stammtisch) here at DZ.com. No problem if you do it in English. As the X-shut is made in Germany, it is widely spread there and you should get some first hand feedback.

Due to this, a platform on the upper side of the helmet is not necessary. The „balance washer Basis“ is between the helmet and the „Basis“. Due to this, the „Basis“ can exactly be adjusted to the desired angle when mounted.
