To shoot on a motorcycle

Distortion in image quality or out-of-focus may occur when used in close proximity to vibrating motors and engines.
When shooting under these conditions, we recommend use of the following separately sold accessories.

Applicable products

FDR-X3000/X3000R, HDR-AS300/AS300R

1.Attach the camera to your body or helmet

Use the separately sold accessories Chest Mount Harness (AKA-CMH1), Helmet Side Mount (VCT-HSM1), or Universal Head Mount Kit (BLT-UHM1) and attach the camera so that the vibrations of the engine or motor do not directly affect the camera.

2. Attach the camera to handlebars, etc.

By using the separately sold accessory Motor Vibration Absorber for X3000/AS300 (AKA-MVA) in combination with the separately sold accessories Handlebar Mount (VCT-HM2) or Roll Bar Mount (VCT-RBM2), you can improve symptoms such as distortion in image quality and the picture coming out-of-focus in an installation environment where the vibrations of engines and motors directly affect the camera.
