I watched it and enjoyed it, though I didn't think that would be a profound enough comment. What camera do you use? The only downside is that you have to watch the volume levels when you move away from the camera.

My wife and I actually played the Flashback 2 last night so I could show her Pitfall. She's helping us with the Super Mario Bros. chapter and wasn't familiar with that important precursor. The Flashback 2 was the quickest solution, since it's purely plug and go. I didn't want to bother pulling one of the Atari systems out and looking for the cartridge. And since it's as accurate as the real thing, she's not losing out on the experience. It's funny though how she struggled with the joystick...

Thanks guys much

Thanks guys much appreciated!!! Gee you mean all I had to do was bitch and whine? LOL!
Seriously, yeah Bill sorry about the volume levels, best I can do really, these are done on the cheap with a SAMSUNG digital camera actually and I can't afford better but I am planning on of those dedicated cheapy YouTube type cams, maybe that will make a difference? Thanks again guys, I plan on lot's more either way............

I don't know about those

I don't know about those cheap video cameras, like the Flip. From what I've seen they have video just as crappy, or worse than most ordinary cameras, plus they can't take a decent still picture. They may have better audio if you're lucky.

It was I used for "The Goodnight Gamer", the original Flip. It's nothing more than 640x480 video, no zoom. The advantage is the convenience. I recently picked up a cheap Polaroid camera ($20) that's just like the Flip, except with a rotatable viewfinder, which will help with monologues.
