I want to make fairly high quality videos, but I don’t want to spend much. I recently received a $50 coupon for an online store and I bought an RCA Small Wonder for practically nothing. This is an intermediate level recording solution that does not use tapes. It uses AA batteries so there is no hastle making sure that it is charged. I put one of my 1 meg SD cards into it so it can record three hours of video as long as the batteries hold out.
Below is the test video that I took of my cubicle at work. I used Microsoft Movie Maker to convert it to a WMV file because there seemed to be an issue with the codec on the original AVI file. I know, I hate WMV files, too.
I removed the video. The embedded video was crashing the blog. I am researching other alternatives.
