Essential accessory

AKA-SF1 07/06/2014 by Bobs (United Kingdom)

I`d had to wait a while before I could get this accessory but it was worth the wait. Immediate benefit is being able to get to the controls without having to take the camera out of its case. The tripod mounts also make life a lot easier. A side benefit is the higher quality sound recording.

Dont Bother with this Mount

AKASF1 29/01/2015 by Vroom (USA) Verified Purchaser Verified

This frame shouldn't be considered for an action camera. The threaded mounts clip in to the frame with thin plastic tabs that pop apart by design. A good bump is all it would take to have the cam seperated from whatever mount it was connected to. I would only this for a stationary tripod setup, but seems a little ridiculous since its for an action cam. What Sony should do is take advantage of the "Flip" setting in the action cams. Build a skeleton frame based ont the standard waterproof case and put the latch with threaded mount on top and slot out bottom of the case to have access to external mic, hdmi, etc and the camera would be mostly protected. Just like the skeleton frame for a GOPRO.

Used on AS100V

AKA-SF1 15/12/2017 by CrewNYC (USA)

The all plastic construction doesn't give you a sense of confidence regarding durability but mine is still working after 2 years of abuse. I use this to house my AS100V, mounted to the side of my paintball mask. I have rubbed up against branches, wooden pallets and concrete walls with no issues at all. Not once has it opened up on it's own when bumped nor are there any cracks. My only issue is that I can't combine the lens protector accessory with this case. This case works for older action cam models like mine and of course will not fit my new addition the FDR X3000.

Doesn't fit the HDR-AS300!

AKA-SF1 10/10/2017 by kleynjan (USA)

The AS300 is a great little camera, but if Sony wants to challenge GoPro they should establish an ecosystem of *COMPATIBLE* accessories. At the very least include a list of compatible action cams in the product specs.

Somewhat useful but ultimately dissapointing

AKA-SF1 30/03/2015 by mikedefieslife (United Kingdom)

I bought the skeleton frame to use with AS100VR action camera. The frame allows the use of the ports when the camera is mounted to a tripod of other accessory. for example to attach an external microphone. The case works well for this, but it has some major flaws. Firstly the AS100 doesn't fit snugly inside. There is some free-play allowing the camera to rattle around, thus adversely effecting the video. Secondly, the L shaped bracket mount has some flex it, which leads to wobble. Thirdly, the SF1 can't be used the lens protector accessory, meaning the lens is bare and exposed.
