The Sony Grip-Style LCD Unit for Action Cam is compatible with Sony's Action Cam. It features a case that your camera snaps into, as well as a large 2.7" LCD Screen that folds out - just like a traditional camcorder. This allows you to preview shots and playback footage instantly.

The cradle works will with the camera and allows quick viewing vs sending the files via WiFi. If the cradle had a socket that allowed for charging the camera could be used with a constant power supply vs changing of the battery.
I received my action cam cradle a couple of days ago and I must say it is all could have asked for. It really works well and I am very happy with the unit. It probably won't appeal to all but for me at least it is a real help. I am the photographer for a Fire District so it gets a lot of use. I was afraid that it would impact the battery life but if it does it is not very much. I really like to have a way to affix the HDR AS10 to a tripod and not have to use the water proof housing. Of course the sound is much better with the LCD cradle. Another point is the review of footage already taken. It is nice to have a larger screen to view your clips. We were on a crash scene and question came up about the event. I was able to show the video that I had taken and that answered the question. The cradle is small enough to fit in my pocket so I am never without it. Even if you only use the AS 10 or 15 as a sport camera, being able review you video I would think would be worth the money. Would I ask to change anything? It would be nice to be able to see the picture before you start recording but I understand why this would not be possible with the existing parts. It doesn't take a lot to get used to only seeing the framed shot when turn the recorder on. All and all I am very happy with the LCD cradle. Dale Sandberg
