Dual camera mount Sony X3000 Can't Post

Hi!
I'm looking for dual camera mount for 2 Sony X3000 on top of Tonfly 3X or Cookie G3.
What i would like to have:
1. Fast removing - like Cookie Flatlock/Tonfly mount etc
2. Some opening on bottom for fast access to card slot without unscrewing cameras.
3. Possibility to change angle/inclination of cameras.
4. Clean setup as much as possible without snag points.

I just saw similar setup with 2 Sony X3000 side by side without boxes on top of CookieG3 with Flatlock, but don't have photos unfortunately...

Any ideas/photos or links :)?

You should be able to find something for points 1 and 4, but 2 and 3 might be difficult.
I am not aware of any system that allows access to the bottom slot of the X3000 without screws being involved, nor of one where you can change the angle like on a GoPro.

Shoot me an email at dan@schierconcepts.com. I have been working one for the G3 designed for 2 x3000s.

There is a picture of Elliot Byrd's helmet with 2 x3000's with the Schier Concept quick release mounts on a cookie fuel.

Do you find the lens protector necessary? and what about the leash? Would the lens protector stay on without it? I really don't like the snag potential of that line

I jump the lens protector, because you can't replace the lens on the Sony like you can on a GoPro. I do use the leash to keep the protector on, though I think it would stay on fine without it. I just tape the leash to the camera.

i find the lens protection necessary for two reasons.
1. it protect the the lens... duhhhhh! ;)
2. When I jump it in Sweden without the lens protection / house, the camera fogs up and get a washed out feel to it.
all my common sens say that I should be the other way around, but I get much better picture out of the camera whit it on....

And yea I use the leash as well (lost one already when not using it)
