I have seen many high school football teams do this, butI got much better results by making my own device than buying a dual tripod head. If you need to change the angles of two camcorders, the ones I have seen are too hard to adjust. I simply mounted a piece of angle iron with holes ($9 at Home Depot). After mounting my main closeup camera, I them mount a “Tristar” grip mount ($69 on Ebay) to the side of it. It is much cheaper that the Bogengrip mounts, and is more reliable. Since it raises the second camcorder’s view screen over the top of the first camera,you can see both screens easily.
