GoPro HERO5 HERO6 HERO7 Black Lightweight X Housing Mount.

Note: This new housing from FunJump Rigging is specifically made to be assembled to the X-Shut Handcam Mount system. In addition to this housing, the items you'll need to complete the full glove are listed/linked below and are also in the related items above:

This X Housing for the HERO 2018, HERO5 Black, HERO6 Black & HERO7 Black provides a protective cage around your camera, while eliminating the big snag point which is inherent for standard action camera mounts. The camera is mounted inverted, which provides instant access to doors, ports, switches, LCD screens and LED indicators.

Recent inclusion of a waterproof casing to the HERO5 Black, HERO6 Black, HERO7 Black and HERO 2018 camera body brought some benefits and some challenges to Funjump Rigging’s handcam designer. The engineer created a smooth mount which sheds off parachute lines, while providing the easy access to the microSD card. Tandem instructors appreciate the time saved by opening a door instead of extracting the entire camera.

On the front face of this camera housing is a button. This spring-loaded switch activates the camera’s Record button. Being on the front face brings the Record button to a most convenient space for tandem instructors. It’s below the front LCD screen, and next to the front LED indicator, nesting all three of these features together, in one accessible location.

What about the large LCD screen on the back side of the camera? You can use that as well. It’s framed in a durable roll cage, but your fingers can use the LCD interface to change settings fast, to line up interview shots, or to display videos for potential customers.

Angled slightly up, the camera is pointed in a direction that seems more at ease, more naturally pointing at the student during freefall. An added perk: this angle helps keep the hand and arm further out of the frame.

Available only in black.

Features of using the Single GoPro HERO5 HERO6 HERO7 Black Lightweight X Housing Mount include:

  • Low profile
  • Slight angle of the housing helps to remove more arm from the shot
  • Highly snag resistant
  • Easy access to all doors, buttons, plugs, sockets, and LCD screens while the camera is installed
  • Easy to remove and reinsert the camera when desired, without tools
  • Stainless steel hardware keeps the cameras locked in place
  • Lightweight yet strong construction
  • Snag hazards have been almost eliminated

Due to the universal/interchangeable nature of this mounting system, assembly is required to the X-Shut Handcam Glove and related adapters, but the assembly tools and parts are included.

Manufactured by Chris Warnock of Funjump Rigging.

Note: This upper housing does not work with the discontinued Pivot Pad Glove Base.
