Does anyone know anything about the FanCier FT 330A tripod? I'm looking at buying it and wanted to know if it will work on the camera I'm currently borrowing (Sony DSC- P51) and the cameras I'm considering buying (Fuji s5000 and Canon A80)... Can anyone help?

Don't know anything about that 'pod, but tripods have a standard screw size that will fit the slot in the bottom of your camera.

Thanks for your reply ohenry... This was what I thought until thismorning when I was reading another thread and someone mentioned that you need to be careful about different thread sizes... :?

Not an issue unless you get into heavier duty tripods made for larger format cameras. Most the tripods come with a thread that has a spring loaded mechanism such that you can expose either the large threads or the smaller standard threads most smaller format cameras use or they provide an adapter bushing.
