  • Strange request

    As some of you may or may not know, I am making tutorials on my website.

    What my request is is this. If anyone has an old cam corder they don't want, I would appreciate it so I can make videos of what I am doing and post them for others.

    It can even be as old as one of those old VHS camcorder. I am not picky and I am not making TV quality videos, just so long at it is NTCS

    and not PAL
    , also that it works. I only want to show how to do things easier for beginners and old timers alike.

    I have no intention of charging for these either.
    Anyhow, if you can help email me at

    mystuff1000@hotmail.com

    Thanks for your time.

    Ok well just thought you might want to know that someone nearby gave me a sony camcorder. I was hoping it would be a model RR but it was not to be. Anyhow, as soon as I can afford tapes [or get some for free? ] I will be shooting video tutorials if any one is interested.

      Hi, Stephen -- glad you were able to turn up a camcorder and I hope you get some tapes soon.

      My digital camera can make short video's - two or three minutes, I think - and I was wondering if you digital camera can do the same.

        I've used my palm sized Canon Digital Elph to take some videos. It will only shoot for 30 seconds for some reason. Here's a short one I took while testing the sound in my On30 stream engines:

        I was quite busy doing the videos - controlling the locos with the throttle, pressing the buttons to make the sounds, and running the camera alongside the engines!

        I now have a Kodak P850 digital camera that will shoot videos until the memory card is full, and I can zoom while filming, something the Canon won't do.

        There are several other videos I've taken with this combo on my YouTube site, including my ride last month on the White Pass & Yukon Railway out of Skagway, Alaska.

          My camera was one of the first ones out, a one meg even. No video at all on it.

          I was wondering. Isn't there a website for railfans you can upload pics and vids to? Railphoto or something?

          Thanks whoever knows what I mean and has a link.

          Bob cool video. I liked it. Finally got to show my sweetie a climax in action LOL. At least now she knows I mean a locomotive LOL

              Dave,

              Wow, I have seen it all now. That is the coolest thing that I've seen in a long time. I can only assume that the cars are strung together and that there is a revolving magnet of some sorts; but that is too cool.
