If you want to set up a tripod mount, use epoxy (just the hardware variety will work) and mount a nut in a block of wood first, wax a bolt so the threads don't foul. Once the nut is bonded into the wood (dremel), wax a bolt the same size as the nut and bond the wood block to the bottom or side of the camera. You could also make a hole in the bottom of the camera and bond the nut into the camera, but I think it might be safer to thae the fastening outside of the camera. tim
