Ultimate GoPro / DSLR rig

Hey guys, I spent several months working on the perfect mount for my gopro and DSLR. I wanted to be able to capture video while shooting photography or shoot with both at the same time. I really wanted to retain my ability to used my RODE mic and DSLR external flash. At the same time I wanted to use a LED light, the gopro and the wifi remote all at the same time. After months of purchasing parts and trying out all the different mounting options I cam up with a build that has worked perfectly for me and have built 2 others for friends of mine. I have been able to see what parts were junk and what actually worked so I truly believe I have built a solid mount. Here is a rough list of the parts I used.

-Special order mounting plate x1
-Special order elbow bracket x2
-DSLR side grip handle x1
-GoPro tripod mount x2
-GoPro Wifi remote cradle
-5 DSLR mounting screws
-2 Stainless mounting screws
-1 large DSLR mounting screw
-3 Rubber/Metal fused concave washers
-1 Rubber washer

Attachements Used
-DSLR Canon 70D
-6x6 square LED light
-GoPro Hero3 Black
-GoPro Wifi Remote
-RODE mic
-External DSLR Flash

As you can see from the pictures I have attached, this set up allows for key things to happen.
-Ability to shoot with the GoPro and have the Remote mounted behind it has a monitor for all the front screen data
-Ability to shoot in lo light
-Ability to retain the top hot shoe
-Extra Grip Point
-Nicely condensed
-Can be easily torn down and put back together with just a coin, no screw driver needed
-Adjustability is simple when sliding components around for perfect mounting options

in the end, the mounts and hard wear never failed since I would order different versions of products in order to see what was cheap and what was rock solid and reliable. in the end I got a rig that surprises people wherever I take it and I constantly have people asking me to build them on. so far I have sold 2 rigs and still have many other orders pending.
