A camera will shake worse with this mount.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If I could... I would not give this mount any stars. This Sony Motor vibration absorber shows (in the Owners manual) to be mounted on a motorcycle's handle bar. With the correct other parts, this vibration absorber can be mounted on a motorcycle's handle bars. However. the camera will shake worse with this mount. Mounted anywhere on a motorcycle, the camera will shake with this mount. The mount has internal springs for only ONE end of the mount. The other end does not have any springs, is loose/free, and jumps up and down. You can shake the mount in your hand to see how loose it is and to hear the rattle sound from the loose end. The lose end lets the camera move up and down freely and that worsens the video/picture quality and add camera shake. I purchased this mount to stop/minimize the vibration of my motorcycle (handle bar mounted also), but I still have the same vibrations in my videos, and I also now have camera shake and a rattle sound from the mount. This mount is horrible and should not be considered for resolving vibrations for your camera. This mount does not stop/minimize vibration, but it does add camera shake. The design of a vibration mount is to provide better video/picture stabilization by stopping/reducing vibration, this mount does not achieve this task. Do not buy this mount because it does not work as designed. It worsens the original mount conditions for your camera on a motorized motorcycle.

Pros: Absolutely no pros for this mount.

Cons: Does not stop vibrations, it adds a rattling sound to videos, it adds camera shake (from the lose end of this mount) to videos and pictures, and is non-returnable once it is installed.
