I run a small business selling beekeeping equipment online which I am going to expand by adding new items soon. I want to put videos on the site to show details of the products in use.
What kit do people recommend for making short videos and then for editing and adding a commentary and captions? Each video will only be a few minutes long and the folk who run my website say they will put the file on the site as a .avi so it triggers the user's video application such as Windows Media Player.
I don't want to spend a fortune (no money in beekeeping!) or hire a professional. I'm not ignorant of photography but video is new to me and there seems to be a wide choice of formats and technology. The videos will probably be made outdoors - if only because sunlight is free.
All suggestions gratefully received.
