Merry Christmas to me! LOL
DH just spent $1,000 on new video equiptment for me for this site! Woohoo!

Believe it or not, all of the videos currently on this site were shot with the "video feature" of our digital photo camera. The size you see them at, is the same size they come off the camera! I do compress them so they're less sharp looking, but they're originally the same dimensions!

The real challenge with using this camera has been that it only lets me shoot 60 seconds at a time! So all of the videos, including the largest, which is 25 minutes long, were shot 60 seconds at a time, and spliced together in my editing program!!!! Boy, am I ever looking forward to a normal camera! :D :D :D

...and you know what this also means...
longer videos on DVD's, coming soon!!! (Or eventually, anyway, when I've got more of the free content up on this site!)

Wow, that's excellent. If you can produce such great stuff with so many limitations, I can only imagine how great the new stuff will be. :D

I think that just goes to show you that you don't have to be limited by what you have. I am very impressed with your determination and creativity to produce those videos with the tools you had on hand!

You're going to feel so spoiled with the new goodies!!!!!
