    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:

      Awesome for what it is, home videos and such.The price went down so this was a must have. The only con's to not have five stars is that it is not waterproof so it has its limitations, no grip strap and the button is a little hard to press. Can't go wrong with the price and your buying from the best.

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

      The aka-lu1 is a good accessory to have if you want to check your recording on the go. The play memories mobile app Sony provides doesn't let you to check your video without downloading it to your phone. If you're shooting high def, it'll take 15 minutes to download a video and not to mention all the memory it'll take up on your phone.

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

          Makes the Sony Action Cam units easy to use for casual moments (when you wouldn't want to explain/use the wrist remote screen).

          Excellent build quality.

          Obviously it saps battery life quicker to have the external screen running, but not bad.

          If you can score one on sale, no reason to not acquire and stash in your kit. Use it once and it will make it worth the price.

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

          Basically makes it so you can see what you are recording. Unless you plan on always strapping your action cam to your head or bar, this will be useful so you know what you're looking at. I wonder why they didn't make this the standard case as opposed to an underwater case though. A littl pricey but worth it.

            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)

              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.

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

                          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.

                              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!

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

                                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.
