I have an i1D3 and I'm considering purchasing an i1Pro, but I do not have a suitable tripod. Until now I have been sitting the meter on something to take readings, but I would like something better. Also I have noticed that the thread on the i1D3 is on the back of the meter, so most tripods would place the meter facing up vertically. Is this what the bar is for that I've seen on some tripods, to change the orientation once the meter is secured to the tripod?
Also, how does the i1Pro attach to a tripod? Does it have a thread on it somewhere?
