Are XT2’s compatible with 3rd party mounts for the XT? I am specifically talking about the cover for the actual camera. Are the camera dimensions the same? I know blink stated that 3rd party products were not compatible. But most of the XT2 mount advertisements mention that they work with both models. I only ask as I have 2 spare mounts for XT’s and I have 2 XT2’s on the way!
Same size, but your speaker will be covered
@Austin_Cox that makes a ton of sense, I had not thought of that. Thank you!
Easy enough to cut that out though. Worked for me.
@Jvrthp I don’t have XT2s, so I’m unfamiliar where the speaker is. (I believe it’s on the bottom edge, but no 100%).
Could you post a photo of your alterations?
From the pictures it looks like it is on the bottom of the camera. I am going to drill a few small holes in that area and see if that works. I’ll update once I have the camera!
I need a ladder to get mine I’ll try this weekend but basically just cut out that rectangle
I just purchased a few of these. They work great and utilize the original mounting spot.
I have those as well. Not too happy with them, but they give me the angle I need.
I just installed them and haven’t found any cons, but I’d like to know what you don’t like so I can keep an eye out.
If it’s the exact same ones, my biggest issue is that you have to rotate the mount to tighten it, meaning it can end up in a position you didn’t really want.
I found I had to figure out my angle, tighten the mount, THEN screw it in.
Oh OK I got ya
This is a leftover XT1 mount. I added a few holes with a small drill bit, I could hear and communicate just fine!
