From the tripods I've seen, I like the Miller DS5 for small cams.

Thanks Frank

The Miller is a little on the high end of my scale ( But you do get what you pay for ).

Anyone have any Bogen combinations that might do the trick. There are so many to choose I just need a little input.

I got a tripod kit from B&H when I ordered my PDX10. It was $200 for the legs, head and handle. I don't remember the model numbers, but it's the first one listed for that price if you look at bogen/manfrotto tripod systems. It's very sturdy, not super heavy, si I'm probably going to fill some plasitc bags with sand and attatch them to the shaft, but I'm very pleased with it.

Tim, what kind of budget are you working with for the tripod? It will help narrow the field. Thanks
