My friend Mary Dawn recommended this mounting bracket, and it's absolutely perfect for my setup. And it's CHEAP! Less than $7 on Amazon...
It has a little X-clamp thingie that pinches over the metal slats on my shelving perfectly.
Then I just screw on my video camera (I use our Panasonic digital camcorder - we bought it for filming family events but it doubles as a hobby tool!) to get the perfect top-down angle for my videos.
Not sure this would work for everyone, but I love it! After I film a tutorial, I import it onto my laptop (PC) and use Windows Movie Maker to edit - it's free, yay, and I can add photos, music, crop out portions, etc. It's relatively easy to use. Then I upload to YouTube when I'm done!
Not that I'm a video tutorial expert, but that's what I do. :-)
Thanks for stopping by,
