Tripod setup for filming tutorials

I have been asked several times how I set up my tripod, and last night on a message board I frequent a couple people were looking for a video on how to set tripods up for making tutorials. I said if they couldn't find one I would make one, so here we are.

This is a quick look at how I do it. I need to apologize for the shaky camera, I filmed this at about 3 am, and was quite tired when I did it. Also the lighting in the room is terrible, but I hope you can see well enough. My stamping room has the worst lighting.

The video camera I use is a Canon DC10, and my tripod is a Manfrotto 141RC, both are fairly old, but work great for me. I am also working on a couple of quick tip tutorials for you. Ihave filmed them, but have not had time to edit them yet.... soon I hope.

Thank you for making and posting this video! I am new to scrapbooking and VERY new to making videos (I just made my first one today!) and was looking for a video-expert to post something like this to help us out!!

If you don't mind, I'll be following your blog!! :-)

I set my camera up the same way and do the flip when I edit it.. I think it makes it better for watching them as well.. I need that tripod you have though... I have a smaller width to work in.. Thanks for showing us that..
