One of my favorite “tricks” or tips perhaps is involving a mono pod. Have you ever had to shoot a wedding reception or some other event where you just can’t shoulder yourself past the crowd to get a decent shot? I use a simple mono pod (I purchased from Wal-mart for about $15) that screws very securely to bottom of my VX2100 (3.3 lb.s). I then tilt the LCD so that when I raise the pod and camera in the air and position the shot above the crowd I cancapture my deisired shot. My teen-age daughter calls this the “camcorder on a stick” method. Works great ina pinch.
