The tripod comes with the tripod plate.. Not the camera. Any tripod will have a plate with it. You just use the 1/4" screw that is supplied with said plate

I'm using a low-profile Bogen quick release (Bogen/Manfrotto 3271). That allows me to get the camera on and off the tripod, or switch it to a Glidecam or monopod quickly.

Something to watch out for: I noticed that I couldn't get the camera firmly onto the tripod plate.

Upon closer inspection I noticed there are four very small screws holding the camera's tripod socket into the camera body. These screws were loose.

So be careful: The tripod mount may not be as robust as you might expect. In a critical situation, such as a camera crane, you might want to have the camera backed up with a safety line in case the tripod mount fails.

Correction: Here's what I'm using. Not just the plate, of course, but the entire release system:

Bogen / Manfrotto 394 Rapid Connect 4 Low Profile Quick Release Adapter with 3271 (RC4) Plate
