  • We recently discovered Ram Mounts.  These guys make a huge selection of mounts for a variety of applications. We’ve been using them with Action Cam and we found their mounts to be durable, inexpensive, and highly adaptable.
  • We like Xshot’s series of monopod solutions.  They are about to release the  Xshot Pro is a great choice for extreme shooting.
  • Strikemark’s picatinny rail mount for digital cameras works great with Action Cam.  We found it easy to use and sturdy.

    Will the new ActionCam Skeleton Frame – AKA-SF1 allow access to the NEXT and PREV buttons too?

    Any idea when the PlayMemories mobile app will be updated to allow switching modes so we don’t have to go into the case to change it and then reconnect WiFi?

    Thanks, Hube

    Hope this camera had a rotating lens, an led screen on the camera and the tripod hole on the camera itself.

    In the mean time I’ll stay with a different brand that already has those things
