How do I fit the camcorder to a tripod?

Using a tripod

You can record more stable images if you use a tripod. Camcorder tripods with level gauges can accurately adjust horizontal level. If you will only be using it to stabilize the camcorder, even the mini tripods used for digital cameras will do.

Canon does not sell camcorder tripods. It is advisable to use a commercially available tripod depending on the camcorder model being used.

Do not use tripods with fastening screws longer than 5.5mm, as they may damage the camcorder. The diameter of the screws for fastening the tripod is 1/4 inches.

The camcorder cannot be mounted on tripods with fixed camera positioning pins.
