Just had a thought! I have yet to own this camera, but have read of others finding it a bit too small in the hand. Here's my thought: get a three inch metal bar to screw into the tripod mount. Has anyone tried this? Is the Xacti C6 tripod mount 1/4 inch (with 20 threads per inch pitch, or 1/4-20)?



THANKS!:bye:

Goldy-

Yes, that is exactly the size of the tripod socket. However, I personally have not heard many folks complaining that the C-6 camera size is too small.

One thing you may consider is using a standard tripod shoe. I used the shoe from an old tripod for a Hi-8 camera, and when just using the shoe it makes the c6 easier to hold on to as well as allows you to stand it up right on say a countertop. And it is not very bulky.

Something along these lines:

Your complaint is music to my ears!* The one thing I was really hoping was that it would feel really small and slim in the hand As a tip:* if you do use a tripod, disable the image stabilisation.* It can affect picture quality - at least on other video cameras - (though only marginally) and you won't need any stablisation at all if you are using a proper tripod).
