Motorcycle helmet adhesive side mount
Been searching or a while for some way to mount the action cam to the helmet. Most of the helmet cams sony initially offered were meant for bicycle helmets. They finally released this one so I gave it a shot. So far, its been working pretty well.
The mount allows you to pivot the camera on a dial by pressing down on a button, adjusting to desired angle, then releasing which will lock it in place. I'd say the adjustable range is about 135 degrees so be careful during the application process as once the adhesive is in contact with the helmet, its really hard to pull off and will lose its adhesive strength everytime you try to reapply. It also comes with a leash in case your camera does rip off when your going +120mph.
My only problem with the thing is the button to press down and adjust the angle of the camera is small and hard to feel when you have your riding gloves on. I'm sure I look like an idiot on the road fiddling with the camera, trying to adjust my camera. Anyhow, you wouldnt have this problem if you mount this on your helmet correctly and always pointing at the direction you want it. Unfortunately for me, my helmet is a modular and the shape only allowed me to mount this on my visor, so if I opened my visor, the camera would point to the sky, and vice versa.

It mounts very securely to the side of anything with a flat smooth surface. The camera fits well inside the plastic mount that screws onto the base plate of the part that adheres to what you mounted it to. I put it on the side of my helmet to record while riding. It comes with a clip lock for added security.

having so big camera on a helmet side is not good
This camera is too heavy to have it on a side of the helmet. When installed, the helmet is tilted and you fill imbalance and that one side is much heavier... I don't like it.
Also, this mounting system is very bulky and heavy. I wish Sony had made one single (small mount) to made this compatible with GoPro mount and GoPro quick release mount...

Q & A
Where is the bracket that goes on the camera?
New Sony action cameras come bundled with the mounting bracket (attachment buckle). If yours is missing, Sony has it in the VCT-AM1 adhesive mount kit, or they are available separately on the Internet, search for "Sony attachment buckle".
