    The skeleton frame is perfect with all the different positions it can be mounted. With a bit of work I was able to mount the frame and camera to the rear view mirror of our car so we can document our upcoming cross country road trip. It was about time that Sony came out with the correct accessory for the Action Cam.

    One of the criticisms of the Sony Action Cam is the lack of mounting options. To their credit, Sony has aimed to fix this issue with this skeleton frame.

    The frame allows you to mount the camera to a mount having 1/4-20 threads (tripod, head, etc).

    The design of the skeleton frame also finally allows you to access the ext mic connector.

    Really though, the only issue is there is some rattle when you atttach the mount, which probably makes it inappropriate for any action use.

        This is my go-to mount. It gets more use than the standard waterproof mount. It's great for an extension monopod, for my backpack mount, etc... Do yourself a favor and combine this with the tilt mount and you can do anything you want.

        Comments about Sony Skeleton Frame for Action Cam:

        Wish you could put the waterproof case inside the skeleton frame, other than that it dose what it's supposed to, I did read some reviews saying the case would pop open on them so I'm using a small piece of duct tape to make sure that doesn't happen and so far so good

              Poor Sony: trying so hard, but just can't compete. This product helps get them closer to the versatility afforded to GoPro users. With this device the mounting options for the Sony action cameras is greatly improved. While it is very strong ABS plastic and the camera fits snug, it's a little under-whelming.

                I bought it to use on a bike, but it wobbles too much, so video is not good. Also, at the track, it just opened and my camera fell to the ground. On a tripod it works ok, but on bicycles and motorcycles i would not recommend. It´s better to buy a underwater case and cut it open.

                  This mount allows camera to be attached to a tripod on the right or left side, as the 90 deg tripod piece snaps inside the window area of mount. One of the sides used will cover up display screen. Both left and right mounts leave bottom open for use of mic input or the other 2 connectors ( HDMI or USB cables) Yellow slider button on top secures both halves together very well. Also includes a snap on piece for bottom of case with tripod threads, but you cannot access bottom connectors when this is in place. Had to retro fit waterproof case for wireless microphone connection, before this one was available.

                    Comments about Sony Skeleton Frame for Action Cam:

                    Works well with my Panavise mounts or any tripod to get a Sony Action Cam stable while allowing access to the microphone input.

                    Nice too that the Skeleton Frame allows mounting in several positions without much fuss - just snap the mount around and carry on.

                    The frame itself does feel a bit fragile, so I'll be curious to see how well it wears as hours of use accrue on the device. However, given the nominal price of it, not too worried if it does break as a replacement is not terribly expensive.

                    the missing item that should have come with your action cam, no way to mount it onto anything without this frame. Yes the underwater housing does have the tripod mpount but the unit creates fog inside the housing.
                    Frame allows multi ways to mount it to anything with a tripod mount hole

                    I bought this and the Drift Gopro mount to mount the Sony action camera to my MC helmet. It makes the action camera MUCH more low profile and allows you more mounting options. The clip on mounts will mount on the sides as well as the bottom of the frame.

                    Only downside I have found is that if you want to use your external mic you will need to mount to the sides which will make the camera stick out a bit further from the helm.. and is not quite as protective as the Waterproof housing

                    Overall its a useful tool and i'm glad Sony is listening and adding mounting options.. hope they keep making improvements.
