2 cameras on 1 tripod

Fairly simple question here, just seeking opinions and solutions.

 

I want to have 2 cameras, a 5d Mark 3 and a T2i, mounted side by side on the same tripod. I'll be filming some interviews and need a wide and tight shot. 

 

Anyone used any type of bracket to achieve this with success? I have a fairly cheap flash bracket that will fit both cameras, but its a bit flimsy and I'm not sure it would support the weight of the t2i off to the side.

I have this, works well.  http://www.amazon.com/Desmond-Bracket-Cameras-Stereoscopic-Photography/dp/B004HK0RXY/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1377688151&sr=8-3&keywords=two+camera+bar+tripod

 

A draw-back, however, is you cannot tilt either camera up and down.  So you may want something like this

Or get a an additional connection between camera and bar in first case.
