Sony HRD-CX430v Camcorder

The mounting points for attaching a tripod or grip on the Sony HRD-CX430v are backward. The hole to screw in the bolt is in front of the hole for the alignment pin.
This means no tripods or camera grips will fit the camcorder except those marketed by Sony. Even their GP-ATV1 grip will not fit their own product.
I talked to Sony tech support and they told me to buy a Sony tripod. What a rip off of the public.
