Besides photography, I enjoy video taping trains. For the most part, I have used a Sony 8mm Camcorder, but some of the early clips were shot with a old RCA video camera and portable recorder. We now use a digital camcorder, which provides better quality video.

I used to have RealVideo and Windows Media formats available, but have now switched over to You Tube. I get more exposure that way.
