Good, essential even, but......
on 7 May 2015
This is a very good, one might even say, essential add-on to the Sony action cam, in my case the AS 100 VR. Unless you have the Live View wrist add-on, you have no way of knowing what you are filming, and if you are using this as a "standard" camera, this is pretty essential. It works well and is very simple to use, but there are a couple of gripes.
First, you do have to slightly damage the camera to fit it: breaking off the two lids that cover the access ports on the underside of the camera. As another reviewer has noted, in the case of the AS 100, this has to be done with both access ports, although none of the manuals or help describe this; thank you to them for making this clear, but Sony should be doing that.
Second, there is no way to fit an external microphone whilst in this add-on, so you are stuck with the mic on the camera. Again, if you are using it as an action cam this is probably of no concern, and in any event it is not a bad mic, but it does limit the camera outside of those circumstances.
