I've been lurking around the site for a few months now soaking up all the info I can. I own a website for mazda trucks and about a year ago I thought about making tech moves but didn't have any way to get a camera much less the materials needed to have for each video. To make a long story short I mentioned it on the site and after a few hundred dollars of donations have my first 3 tech videos online. I have footage for about 4 more already on my computer and 20 or 30 on the list to film in the future. Anyways, I'm a technical person great with anything that requires mechanical skill but am not photogenic by any means. My readers all seem thrilled with the tech videos and when I ask for their oppinions never get anything negative or suggestions on what could use work but I know there is tons of room for improvement so I've decided to post here for some 3rd person feedback.
Cannon ZR930 Camera (Modified to fit UV filter)
Vantage TR-250 Tripod (with plastic swivel head "cringes")
Lighting: Shop clamp lights covered with baking parchment paper
Software: Pinnacle Studio 8 and Paint Shop Pro 7
Here are the videos in order of production starting with the first one I made:

Thanks for all of the help and advice, everything I've learned to make the videos has come from Videomaker.
Edit: Sorry if the videos in the post are a problem, I didn't know the script would automatically parse the links, lol.
