      Unless we are putting the camera in a dangerous predicament or under water, the sony LCD case is the way we use our Action Cams. It has a 1/4-20 tripod mount and a flip out LCD screen so shots can easily be framed instead of having to deal with wi-fi and remembering to turn it on and off to avoid battery drain on long events.
      The LCD case does add some size to the action cam but is worth it. Now if they had just allowed for HDMI and MIC jack access with this case, it would be perfect!

      Camera connects down on connector to provide power and video to LCD display on a flip out LCD screen. Tri-pod mount on bottom. Little door flap on bottom of camera is somewhat clutzy to get out of the way to mate camera to connector. Video looks good on display but uses camera battery for power, and not sure of how much battery is drained by using LCD. 3 buttons on left side bottom will put camera into play mode and you can play last clip and hear audio, or you can FF or RR to other clips on the chip. Handy for looking at video out in the field. The angle is so wide, I have had the sun's rays wreck many shots. Now I can see when the sun is causing a problem. You need a small lens shade on top of this camera.

        Comments about Sony Grip-Style LCD Unit for Action Cam:

        The grip style LCD case is the most common way we use our Action Cams. It turns the camera into a handycam so you can use the LCD screen for easy framing while shooting. The only times this isn't the preferred method of Action Cam use would be:
        1. If shooting in a hazardous or wet environment. (Instead use the original waterproof case)
        2. If the extra size/weight is an issue.
        3. If you need access to the audio or HDMI jacks. (Instead use the skeleton frame case)

          Comments about Sony Grip-Style LCD Unit for Action Cam:

          Very nice complement to the Sony as15 action cam that allows you to turn your as15 into a more traditional camcorder (although with limited features). LCD screen is sharp and bright enough. Very convenient tripod mount. The only issue I have has more to do with the camera itself than the LCD unit: it is very difficult to keep the the door of the camera open when trying to snap it into the LCD unit.

            I have just gotten this so my review maybe a little premature. It attaches nicely to the Action Cam and it works as described. It is a little 'plasticy' and feels a bit cheap, but that's what this device is all about. Very light-weight. likely needs the hand grip to be same so you don't drop it.

              I love the little Sony Action-Cam. It produces outstanding videos, but having no way to 'preview' the image was a pain. This dedicated goodie solves that problem and at a very reasonable price. A heck of a combo!

                I use it as a second cqamera when shooting video for the local access channel. This unit is a little dynamite package that is well worth the money. I have used it a couple of times and with the addition to the LCD Unit is is easy to use and much easier to see what you a shooting.

                      Since my primary use of the Sony HDR-AS15 camcorders is golf swing analysis the ability to mount the camcorder to a tripod and use an LCD for accurate alignment is extremely useful if not required. The LCD screen has good resolution and works as well as the average camcorder in direct sunlight.The camcorder fits snugly into this case and is very well protected by it.

                            Bought this accessory as part of an Action Cam system so I could properly orient camera in car before driving.

                            The LCD was very high quality indeed, but camera is only in focus up to about 30-feet; blurry beyond that. The opening for the "prev/next" buttons made the already-difficult buttons that much more problematic.

                            When removed from camera to recharge battery, cam locked up; had to remove battery to reset.

                              This unit drastically improves the HDR-AS15, because it turns it into a usable camcorder and then frees you from the waterproof case, which in my tests, diminishes picture quality. The LCD is nice because it helps you monitor the picture, which so far I have not been able to do by Smartphone. I didn't give up on the camera, because it takes excellent 1080P HD footage and this unit helps make it usable. Works well with the suction cup mount and the handle bar mount!

                                Camera connects down on connector to provide power and video to LCD display on a flip out LCD screen. Tri-pod mount on bottom. Little door flap on bottom of camera is somewhat clutzy to get out of the way to mate camera to connector. Video looks good on display but uses camera battery for power, and not sure of how much battery is drained by using LCD. 3 buttons on left side bottom will put camera into play mode and you can play last clip and hear audio, or you can FF or RR to other clips on the chip. Handy for looking at video out in the field. The angle is so wide, I have had the sun's rays wreck many shots. Now I can see when the sun is causing a problem. You need a small lens shade on top of this camera.

                                  I'm astounding, that without extra battery, you can convert this action cam, into a regular cam (without the zoom, of course), only with this adapter. The image in the LCD is as beautiful (sometimes more) that in your TV, but real enough for knowing the final result. Very easy to connect to the camera, an working in seconds to review your adventures. I think it is a must have for the new sony's AS line of Action Cam's.
