Accessories for Panasonic HDC-TM300


Active Member
I have a Manfrotto 055 tripod on order, for DSLR, and video, use. So I'm now looking at a fluid video head. The 701HDV is very nice, but also seems oversized for use with a hand-held camcorder like the HDC-TM300.

There is of course, the Manfrotto 128RC micro fluid video head, but I've seen a few negative remarks about that - relating to panning friction control, etc.

Can anyone recommend either of above, or alternatives?

Also been looking at an external mic., such as the Rode VideoMic. Would this fit the HDC-TM300? And I'm unclear about the technology/standards/ The Panasonic's built-in mic. is 5.1ch, but of course wind noise is an issue. And the Rode is... stereo? Any recommendations?
