What equipment are you all using to record your videos? Webcam alone? Webcam with additional microphone? Video recorder? Any post-production editing?
The videos posted here have better sound than I can get out of my webcam and I'm wondering what I can do to improve the quality...

I just used a Macbook with a built in cam and mic. For the Christmas project I will use recording software. ... I can't believe I'm talking to our Fiddlerman family friends right now as I have a pretty big gig to play tomorrow night and need to get in practice (lead electric guitar...) but have my fiddle in hand, curious how you are all doing.
I can tell you one thing Cat that a lot of recording studios are switching to the Blue brand mics and Logic instead of Protools. Many recording options out there nowadays. Audacity is still free and there's many low cost HD cams out there now too.
Hey guys just thought you should know that my order for the blue eyeball webcam/mic came in today. I paid like 20 something aussie bux for it and here's my quick summary about it. My key impressions are that it's very soft in terms of gain. I was testing it with my voice and I found that i'm better off just holding it next to my mouth and also it produces a nice echo that enhances my singing LOL. With regard to violins its good for really loud violins because it cuts down on the amplification so it has a nice overall sound. Not so good for my silent violin but i plug that in directly anyways so no biggy there. I cant exactly get the cam to work, i've purely been testing sound so far. for a condenser mic it's ridiculously cheap. I think it's good for people just starting out like me. An inexpensive first mic that's easy to use and has a relatively good sound.
