Over at the Sony NEX-VG10 User group, some users are complaining about the NEX-VG10's tripod mount, and how poorly it mates to a tripod (making it difficult to adjust zoom or focus without the camera moving.)
Over on the DPReview forum, a reader damaged the base of his camera when the Glidcam unit it was on fell over. The reader tries to minimize what happened by saying it was "bumped over" and "tipped over 1.5 ft"; but clearly it fell over, and if that's the only damage to the camera he should probably consider himself lucky! Actually, any damage to a camera that fell a foot and a half probably can't be blamed on a design deficiency.

Still, for those looking for a way to improve the connection between camera and tripod, Olof Eckberg at WestsideAV Studios, North Conway NH, makes tripod plates for several cameras, and he says that he could make a plate for the NEX-VG10, and if someone is willing to stop by with their NEX-VG10, he'll measure it and make a plate (and give that person a copy too.)
