        Comments about Sony Action Cam Handlebar Mount:

        I gave it five stars because it does what it's supposed to do. But as one reviewer pointed out, the videos are still pretty shaky. I think the bicycle's vibrations are transmitted to the camera. I use the HDR-AS10, which is kind of the bottom line of Sony action cams. Meanwhile, on my bicycle at least, the sounds are transmitted through the bike's frame, so I hear a lot of clanking and such from the shift changes. Perhaps this doesn't happen on a carbon-fiber bike frame, but it does on my metal frame.I have an old Flip video camera that I want to try on this mount one day. Presumably any camera with a tripod mount would fit, though you'd want to be sure that a heavy DSLR is secure. I see no reason it wouldn't be, as long as the mount is tight on the bar.

        Comments about Sony Action Cam Handlebar Mount:

        I bought this mount expecting a great video of myself riding my bike in the woods. It came out very shaky even with the image stabilization of the camera. It was easy to install but the weight of the camera will also make the grip part of the mount tilt forward. because the video was too shaky it also compromised the sound quality.

          this item in question works very well with mountain / road bicycle which will support for the (SONY & GOPRO) action cameras. comes with multiples of spacing gaskets for different sized handles

            Comments about Sony Action Cam Handlebar Mount:

            This works perfectly as a handlebar mount. I work in Milwaukee and as many know we had a huge event involving Harley-Davidson motorcycles so it got a lot of use. I also found another use for it. Every year Milwaukee County opens a couple of pools on the last day for dogs to run in. The handlebar mount worked great as a handle for my Sony Action Camera so I could hand hold it and keep up with the mayhem.

            Comments about Sony Action Cam Handlebar Mount:

            On a bicycle trip I wanted to record, I researched buying the new Go Pro and other brands such as Contour. I already have a Panasonic Lumix TS-3, which is a superb take-it-on-vacation camera. The TS-3 has a Leica 28-128 mm equivalent zoom lens, ( the Go Pro a fixed super-wide angle). The TS-3 has Optical Image Stab, GPS tagging, and a barometric altimeter. Go Pro lacks all of these. And the TS-3 has much better image processing, all around. So, for the cost of this high-quality, adjustable mount, I'm much better off than if I bought a new "extreme action" camera. X-Games are for kids !

                  Works well, easy on/off. Adapts to different size bars. I have it on a mountain bike and have used a Lumix Tough cam with it.
