My mom says :" Don't go to the woods if you are afraid."
For my videos I use an old(it is about 10 years old) Sony MiniDV with mini DVtapes. Though it is not recorded in high definition, it is still recorded in a decent quality. I also use a telephoto lens with the camcorder. I always use a tripod when I tape myself working. On occasion after you taped the whole tutorial and you watch it over, you realize you taped your head from the above or something silly like that, missing the core point of the tutorial. It is frustrating and you can either ditch the tutorial or re-do it.
Once I'm happy with the video I have to render it. I render all my video to avi format. Then I have to upload it to You Tube and after that is done, there are few minor things to do like add annotations, monetize the video and such. So all together it takes a little bit of time and effort to do.
