Samsung TL350, which fellow dgcer 811rv was kind enough to send my way. We have him to thank for HD.

I use my dad's old tripod from the early 80's that's missing a few bolts that I've replaced with CAT5 cable for now. I keep meaning to get one of those rotating mounts to make getting the shot level much quicker, but for now I manually adjust each leg when I'm shooting a scene from a hill.

I use Windows Live Movie Maker because I've been too lazy to learn some real video editing software. I've been huge into Photoshop since around 2000-2001 and download the trial of Adobes video editor and felt waaaaaay in over my head.

Mueltrain, one instructional video I definitely plan to shoot is discussing release angles and how different discs respond to them. Something like showing a stable-neutral disc flying on a hyzer, anhyzer, roller and flat release straight shot, then show how overstable and understable molds respond to the same thing and how you can use specific combinations to acheive certain lines, e.g. flex shot approaches with an overstsble disc, or hyzer flips with understable discs. I think under-utilizing release angles is one of the biggest things that holds newcomers back from being able to hit the lines you want. I can't imagine how frustrating shaping lines would be if I only knew how to release flat, and I feel bad when I see people release their straight flyer flat into a headwind, and then bitch about the wind. I just want to yell HYZER!

Giving thought to pursuing tournament play this year.
