My First Craft Video Tutorial: My Staples Webcam


Have you ever really wanted to do something new,  but something was holding you back?  Well, I have wanted to make craft video tutorials for a while now, but have been so busy and so concerned that I didn’t have the right equipment.  When the opportunity came to work with Staples, I knew it was the perfect time to just dive right in!

Staples sells so many high-quality webcams, but this one in particular had me at “pro webcam”.  Since I am so far from that, I was hoping that it would help fill in the gaps… and it did!  Here is what I loved most… I simply plugged the usb cord into my laptop and it walked me through the entire installation and set-up in under 10 minutes.  This was great for my non-technical guru self!

When I was ready to record my video, I attached the webcam to my camera tripod, hit a few buttons to zoom in and was ready to record.  I was surprised at how easy it was to maneuver everything.  I decided to do a video tutorial on how to make the Duct Tape Flowers that we shared with you a few days ago. I still have a long way to go as far as positioning the camera and lots of other details, but I did it! To me, the quality of the video was great and it really was so easy to use.

So, here it is… my first video tutorial….

If you have been considering purchasing a webcam, I highly recommend the Logitech Pro Webcam.

Here are all of the details…
