I used a cheap keyfob camera I got from ebay for $6 to make my video. I put it on my Bachman Rail truck and ran it around my inner and outer loops on my layout. You got through the tunnel under the waterfall, through the covered bridge around the inner loop past my grain elevator I made this winter. I thought it came out pretty good. With the new imovie on my new Mac I can't seem to do titles/etc, but it seems okay.



I got the camera off ebay. They still sell them, you need a mini video card for them also:

Excellent Jerry, Not bad for a six buck camera. Now we see your layout that is so nicely shown in the GR magazine, from the tracks, Pretty cool,.

Quite a discussion on them over on the G Scale Central site in the UK. Guy posted some good directions for the use of the camera, ones that come with it are translated Chinese that makes no sense. You do need a mini video card. I got mine at Radio Shack, came with an SD adaptor also. . Over on the UK site some were talking about finding one with a card, might read up on that. Jerry.

Great layout Jerry! Of course, anybody with the latest GR knows that! I really love the "engineer's viewpoint" running around the layout! Well done!!

Hi Jerry, Rob from UK - wouldn't follow up on the inclusive deal - one guy here didn't get the card with his camera and it certainly doesn't work out any cheaper!!!

Rob
