I am just starting with you tube videos and my videos suck big time ok got a cheap Fujifilm FinePix S2980 £65 of ebay as a replacement for old 4mb Digital Camera was told it was a good camera to start with but some of the reviews I seen not shure now ..

Ok the idea of this camera is to take pictures of projects I do upload them to photobucket and post stuff on my website also make home facebook that sort of thing (also make some pornos) :lol: just joking

so so far I have this off ebay as bulbs were damage for 5 pounds I used nomal bulbs till I got some led bulbs which gives a good light but not tested at the moment also got a cheap tripod for the moment till I understand what I am doing if I show you some videos can you just give me some feedback on any tips which would help ...

I won $50 with this project

Firstly I dedicated video camera is the way forward as far as quality goes.

Good move as far as a tripod goes, cheap is fine for most things, then fluid heads for pans etc.

I will say the text in between does look poor like a pre set in a cheap/free video editor. (windows live?)

By all means its functional but could be better, but a good start.

Depends on a few things, I use sony vegas pro, but its a bit like photoshop as in you really need to know how to use it to get professional results. Its not cheap but that can be sorted.

I do have similar work I have done but I am not allowed to distribute it.

Use an elastic band instead of a fluid head, it can work just as well :) Just attach the elastic band to the handle of the tripod - literally loop it over, and pull.. it'll be nice and smooth :)

Nice trick actually, but it doesn't work on all tripods as some will just jerk when enough tension is made, as mentioned the video doesn't seem too much about pans anyway.

I've found a few tripods which don't like it. I've found to get around it sometimes, you just tighten the panning screw lock thingy majig a little bit, and it then smoothens it out. But I rarely ever do any panning stuff unless its on track, and I don't use a tripod for it either lol. Anyway, it may come in handy for someone to know that tip!
