Helmet Options for SLR and Sony Action cam Can't Post

Hello,

i have been out of the helmet market for a couple years now, but now my Rawa Helmet is beginnung to deteriorate and i need a replacement. Additonally my GoPro drownd while scuba diving, so a new setup is required.

I ocasionally want to continue jumping my Cannon 700D SLR and i think i will get a Sonny FDR-X3000 or HDR-AS300. I don't want to have a huge Helmet, more something like a Tonfly 2X Helmet.

Are there any other Helmet Options i should consider?

I really like my FTP Narrow set up and the helmets come used for cheap quite often. The metal bracket was a one off project but makes up for the useless sony box.

Do you want to be able to mount your Canon and an action cam at the same time or more one or the other but not both kind of thing?

@OzziDave
The FTP narrow is basically a camera Helmet. Since i only jump DSLR ocasionally that a way to big and professional setup, but thanks.

@Anachronist
Yes, i want the DSLR and the action cam. But if there is a good option that will offer just one or the other that may be interesting as well.

I would like to sidemount my new Sony just like my old Sony PC2 :-) that should leave enough space on the top for a DSLR. If i do decide to get a GoPro again i could use the tonly mounting braket https://tonfly.com/...v8il65cmo742e7h9nkp1

Looks like Tonfly is the only one who allows a setup like that.

Don´t have the complete helmet close by but this is a home made setup on a carbonfiber plate and a TF camera link for the Tonfly 3X.
I also us another mount (3X GOPRO® BRACKET VIDEO CAMERA ANTITWIST PIN) but with a a6300 infront instead of a GoPro and a Sony HDR-CX410 on top. Its not on there page but can be made by them if asked. (doubt it will fit a DSLR thats why i switched to a a6300)
Will send some pictures of the complete setup when i can..
