Speed Light (flash light) for stills / mounting Can't Post

Hi everyone,
Does anyone have a speed light (flash light + stills) mounted on a Flat Top Narrow or helmet of similar size?
I found several people using it of FTP`s and bigger helmets, but I am very confy with my FTN and don`t want to get a bigger helmet.

cheersss

that does not look good,, i would either move the camera over and make a place for the flash to be next to it, or make a box so the flash can lay on top of the camera. i would not jump it like that.

I would place the still camera on the top, get rid of the sony, place a go pro on the front.

The flash should have room on the top (laying flat next to the still camera)

I'm not sure I would jump that thing. Even without the flash, how do your videos not vignette off the lens from your still? If you need something really wide, then perhaps the GoPro is an option. You could also visit a fabricator and have them make you an aluminum box for your camera that is flat on top to mount your flash to.

In these few pictures I mounted Bonehead Goldmember on top of my camera box and had a bracket made for my flash that gets mounted to that. I will work on getting a picture up for you in the next few days or so of just the bracket.

Hope these help!

Randy
