Hi Earl, I’m just startin


Hi Earl,

I’m just starting out and read your post with interest. I bought the equipment to start a part-time business basically to keep myself busy. It’s part-time and I enjoy shooting and editing. I have a full-time job so there’s no pressure to make the “big” money, but like anyone, I would like to pay off the equipment costs. What I found interesting was the tape stock at $18. I’m paying that per tape to feed my machines (Canon XH-G1S). Am I going overboard?
