Description

Using a tripod with the XF100/105 camcorders

Solution

Tripods used for camcorders

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 5.5 mm, as they may damage the camcorder. The camcorder cannot be mounted on tripods with fixed camera positioning pins.

Mounting the camcorder on a tripod

Mount the camcorder on a tripod, and then firmly fasten the tripod mounting screws. The diameter of the screws for fastening the tripod is 1/4 inches.

When you use a tripod with 3/8" mounting screws, the tripod base (where you mount the tripod) needs to be replaced with the optional TB-1 Tripod Adapter Base first.

In addition, by using the optional TA-100 Tripod Adapter, you can fix the camcorder on a tripod in a more secure and speedier manner.
