This camera does not have a tripod mount. Its very hard to hold still enough for a still picture. The video is great and battery life is pretty good. The function buttons are not easily understood or labeled and will take multiple uses before I remember how to erase, view, etc. The images are great though. It would make all the difference to me if I could put it on my tripod though. Never thought to look for that in the description, just thought it was a given.
