Virtual Reality (VR) headsets have multiple cameras mounted on the headset. For proper operation, the relative positions of the cameras need to be maintained during use. In particular, cameras that are the reference cameras for the headset need to maintain extremely tight positional tolerance during strap tensioning of the headset. This disclosure describes a camera mount design for high positional tolerance. The main structural piece of the headset is manufactured using a stamping process. A stereo bracket is attached to pedestal mounts associated with the reference cameras. This enables the reference cameras to be decoupled from the rest of the system and maintain a tight relative positional tolerance. A slot is cut away within the main stamped structure to mitigate structural coupling between the reference cameras and the rest of the structure.
