The outside diameter of the hose should be about 5/8". Slide a bicycle grip over the hose and then screw the whole thing into the tripod hole on the camera. You may have to put some glue between the hose and the bicycle grip. You could also add a velco strap if needed.
    You should easily be able to use this with any camara you own.
    great quad invention.

    Small cameras do not work for me, outside a slick invention like maddogs. I find it much easier to use a DSLR where I have more to hold, as well as resting it against your face to use the view finder.

    DSLRs are a great shape for a quad to grip but a bit on the heavy side for me.

    I use a bridge camera, kind of a half way house between a compact and a DSLR, this is Panasonic's current model the FZ200....

    I use a Canon Rebel and Sanyo HD Xacti for cameras. Along with my Blackberry Torch.

    I use my nose, fingers/knuckles, whatever it takes.

    On the Rebel, I have a wired remote that I bite to focus the lens and then to take the photos.

    For the Rebel and Xacti, I use what is a bike handle bar grip which has a dowel glued into it. Sunk in the dowel is a proper size bolt with the correct size threads to attach to most if not all cameras with the mounting option.

    See attached photos.

    www.filmtools.com has a number of handles to hold SLR type cameras

    The Redrock Nano DSLR Grippit is a handle that screws into the bottom.

    No Tri's or hand function.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
