Re: Require Tripod for Panasonic SD900 (TM900)

I use a Libec TH650DV with my TM900. There are some details on the Libec technical info site link (see second post in the thread I link to below). I originally bought it for my Sony HC1 (still working but mostly retired now!)

I personally rate Libecs well above the similar priced Manfrotto tripods - but I'm sure others will have different suggestions/ideas for you. Good luck!

Not sure where your nearest supplier is where you are.

Re: Require Tripod for Panasonic SD900 (TM900)

I have the same problem andwas considering a monopod but have almost decided to give up that idea and go for a tripod with fluid head. I am thinking of the giotto. VH6011 head on a giotto GTMT835OB tripod or substituting the head for a Manfrotto 701HDV.

I cant find a VH6011 head to see in any shops and I cant find any reviews so far.

I wonder if anyone could advise on the Giottos?
