Default Tripod mounting systems for cameras and camcorders

Hi, Virtually all cameras made today, including digital SLRs and point-and-shoots as well as camcorders, are affixed to a tripod using a standard 1/4x20 tripod socket (on the camera) and screw (on the tripod). The specific camera and camcorder you mention both use this standard system, so just about any tripod can be used with either one. Our recommendation on a tripod that would be ideal for both your camera and camcorder is the sturdy, lightweight Davis & Sanford Magnum XG, which retails for about $100. It has a fluid-effect pan head that's excellent for smooth professional results when tracking moving subjects when shooting video movies, and it also works very well for taking still pictures. Good luck, and good shooting! Best regards, Jason Schneider
