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.

When mounting the camcorder on a tripod, make sure that the tripod’s fastening screw is shorter than 6 mm (0.24 in.). Using other tripods may damage the camcorder.
