Not too sure Greg, I would take a trip down to your local camera store and pic up a cheap photo tripod then add a cheap video head for small cameras such as a manfrotto 128DV head.

I have a Velbon CX Mini which is great for travelling as its very light and fits in my camera bag. It was great for stills when I was using my Canon 400D. Now I've got a bigger heavier camera it's not so good with heavy lenses on but the bonus of the Velbon is it is very light and super compact. You would definitely need a fluid head for video work though. On my larger tripod I have this head fitted which again is relatively cheap but has great build quality and good performance...
