just finished editing my current project, and after a few probs that you helped me to sort out, i'd like a bit of advice. its become apparent that a tripod would be an advantage, to steady up shots, so is there a particular type for cams? I've read in my manuel that i have to be careful w/ the screw length, so what type do you advise, and what features do they have/should i look out for? Ps nothing too expensive! Whilst i'm here, i'm also thinkin of gettin some filters. I know of the Canon set- are these any good?. again what make, and what type wpold you recomend for my 1st lot BTW the thread is 30.5mm Canon Mv450i (UK) ZR39mc (US) thanks a lot!!
