Default Vanguard VS-82 Table Top Tripod & Coolpix 4500

Vanguard VS-82 Table Top Tripod & Coolpix 4500.

Does any one have an idea about how these would work together ?

The 4500 is light and has a tripod threaded bushing so it will mount on the tripod. You should be asking why you need such a tripod as it isn't much use without a surface, like a table top, to set it upon. If you are interested in closeup photography where camera and subject are on a table top then it will probably help provided it's sturdy enough.

I know why I am asking.
I got this used Coolpix to take pictures of coins to sell on eBay.
I guess I should have ask " Is the Vanguard VS-82 sturdy enough to hold a Coolpix 4500 safely."

If the coin is flat on the table top it is possible that the tripod won't be able to hold the camera in such a position to get a good shot of it. Is there a decent camera store in your area where you can go and test your proposed solution before buying?

I am disabled and live in a rest home so I can not go to camera shop. I live in a rural area and I am not sure there are any shops nearby.
I think I can jury rig a "easel" to hold the coins in a vertical position.
If the camera is well balanced on the tripod I should be OK.
I think I will buy the tripod (Amazon.com) and just send it back it it does not work. Thanks for the input.
