Nearly all of the Mini-DV camcorders on the market have some form of anti-shake or steadying feature. Speaking frankly, these features don’t work all that well and they suck down battery life. Unless you can stand as still as a statue for a long period of time while simultaneously operating your video camera, you will want to pick up a tripod. A good tripod can be found for less than $40, and you’ll want something that collapses into a size and weight that is easy for you to carry around. Additionally, there is no point in purchasing a tripod that is so tall that you cannot operate the camcorder while it is fully extended.
